NEW YORK, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Gartner, Inc. has announced that Opera Solutions (@OperaSolutions), a global leader in Big Data, machine learning, and advanced analytics, has been designated as a "Cool Vendor" in its Cool Vendors in Analytics1, 2013 report.
Each year, Gartner identifies a select number of new Cool Vendors in key technology areas and publishes a series of research reports highlighting these companies and their products and services. For the Analytics designation, Gartner evaluated dozens of potential candidates to whittle it down to five final designees.
"At Opera Solutions, we are committed to building solutions, such as our Consumer Signal Hub, that use machine learning to extract predictive information from Big Data and turn it into prescriptive best actions that drive frontline productivity and bottom-line growth," said Arnab Gupta, Chief Executive Officer at Opera Solutions. "We're delighted and honored that Gartner has recognized our endeavors by designating us a Cool Vendor in Analytics."
Opera Solutions' Consumer Signal Hub integrates Big Data flow from both inside and outside the enterprise and then uses advanced machine learning science to extract, store, and continually update predictive information, or Signals, from this data. The Hub creates and makes available thousands of Signals for each customer, providing marketers with a new capability to rapidly develop powerful predictive models at the individual consumer level and execute real-time, segment-of-one marketing.
Gartner's coveted Cool Vendor designation joins other industry recognition for Opera Solutions over the last several months. ESG Global named Opera Solutions as a finalist for Big Data Vendor of the Year 2012, and IDG's Computerworld Honors Program recognized Opera Solutions Government Services (OSGS) as one of its 2013 Laureates. In addition, Big Data Republic also recently named Opera Solutions a top 100 Big Data social media influencer.
