I am no champion of Tableau but I can tell you it should be in any shortlist for POC. And Qlik #12? Yellowfin has many pros but #1 I can't believe.

Nobody would take one BI & Analytics report as the sole arbiter of best fit and by the very nature of different use cases what's best for one is not a good for another.

Even so this list lacks substance. There are just pros and no cons. Unlike the Gartner BI MQ, Dresner "Wisdom of Crowds" BI report or Butler Analytics.

It's not that Yellowfin is not a good BI product as Butler Analytics summarises

"There is certainly plenty of competition in this space. Yellowfin represents a good all-round BI solution, and is surprisingly open and extensible. Traditional BI solutions such as Microstrategy and Cognos are more capable, but less user friendly, more complex and more expensive. It does not have the advanced data visualization and discovery capability of Tableau, Qlik Sense or Spotfire, but is broader in its applicability and less focused on this type of functionality. In summary Yellowfin ticks all the boxes for general purpose enterprise BI."
