Oracle a leader in latest Gartner BI Platform Magic Quadrant

As I blogged a short while back ("Announcing Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition"), Oracle announced GA of its BI Enterprise Edition Suite 10g Release 3 (version today. And to top it, there is another press release where it says "it has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platform report." As Paul Rodwick, vice president of product management, Oracle Business Intelligence says (as part of the press release) "We feel our placement in the Leader's Quadrant recognizes our efforts and commitment to provide our customers with the most complete, standards-based suite of BI products for use in any environment.".
The press release is available (on Yahoo!) here.
People who have followed business intelligence and the Gartner Magic Quadrants, last year Oracle was positioned in the 'Challengers' quadrant, while Siebel (with its Siebel Business Analytics) was positioned as a 'Visionary'.

More information to follow.
