Updated Feb 2020
Gartner released the 2020 magic quadrant for Business Intelligence early in Feb 2020. As expected (by me at least), Microsoft is continuing its trail blazing and has maintained a clear lead over Tableau in both ability to execute and completeness of vision. Last year (in 2019) I wrote this blog article to show the trend over time for the last few years. I have now updated this for the 2020 data. I have been collecting the Gartner magic quadrant images since 2015 and needed some way to extract the numerical data points from these images. This article shows you how to do that. Here is the final output – a scatter chart with a play axis in Power BI of course.

Rather than me document the steps one at a time, I produced a quick video that you can watch below.
