Q:

Is there a Web site where I can find all the major BI/Analytics vendors that have optimized their products for MS SQL Server? I know Cognos has done some work in this area and that ProClarity focuses on it, but I'd like to find a list if possible so I can evaluate the various vendors and their products. I am with a small consulting firm and am looking for solutions that will work for smaller companies, I would say in the $10m and above category, and scale from there. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

A:

Joyce Bischoff’s Answer: Check the Microsoft Web site for a list of business partners.Chuck Kelley’s Answer: I would look under the “general resource/vendor categories” on the DMRevew.com Web site. That will give you a list of products that you can then find out if they are optimized for MS SQL Server. Remember that all vendors may try to claim that they are. I know that ProClarity is optimized for Microsoft products.
