This Excel sheet describes a list of different capabilities and features, by criteria.
It is divided by 4 sheets, representing a regular flow in any BI implementation:
Unified Access & Connectivity > Discover & Explore > Collaborate > Administration.

For each item in the list please specify the importance on a scale from 0 to 4 (4 is the highe
for your BI solution.

After filling up this column, start rating the different vendors for that specific topic, scaled f
vendor implementation of this capability fits your needs.
Each topic will receive a score (the importance multiplied by the availability).
Once scoring all the vendors you may refer to the "Results" sheet which shows a summary

The results will also be affected by the "Weight" of each criteria. You can easily change the
