“Recognition from a global player like Forrester shows the IQBlade platform is moving forward fast in the field of data insight and intelligence. The IT market is evolving quickly and our product development roadmap is clearly mapped out to meet the needs of our customer base, who are already seeing great results.”

Jay McBain, principal analyst at Forrester commented in his announcement:
