The BI Survey is the world’s largest survey of BI users and provides a fascinating insight into what’s really going on in the world of BI, as opposed to what the journalists and analysts are hyping.

In return for promoting it here, I get a free copy of the results and permission to blog about them. I’m particularly looking forward to finding out what it says about Power BI this year: just about all of the problems with the Excel/Power-add-ins combination identified in last year’s survey (data volume problems with 32-bit Excel, no real mobile story, the SharePoint dependency, confusion about what each of the add-ins does) have now been addressed with the new Power BI strategy, and I’m seeing a lot of customers starting projects with it.
