MENLO PARK, Calif., Feb. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ayasdi (www.ayasdi.com), the leading provider of machine intelligence software for complex data, was named one of the 10 Most Innovative Companies in Big Data by Fast Company Magazine, for the second year in a row.
"Innovation is the key to accelerating business today. We are honored that Fast Company has named Ayasdi one of the Most Innovative Companies in Big Data for our advancements in analyzing complex data," said Gurjeet Singh, CEO and Co-Founder of Ayasdi. "Being recognized in the Most Innovative Companies issue alongside the world's most innovative companies including Apple, Google, Netflix, Tesla Motors, and Warby Parker is a testament to Ayasdi's pioneering approach to data science and our commitment to uncovering critical business intelligence for our customers."
Ayasdi's approach draws on Topological Data Analysis (TDA) and a broad range of machine learning, statistical, and geometric algorithms to derive business insight from the complex, highly dimensional datasets that characterize the modern enterprise. Ayasdi's platform allows domain experts to focus their energy on identifying critical, often subtle relationships, without requiring them to write queries or code algorithms. Ayasdi's fundamentally different approach frees organizations from the hypothesis-driven, iterative approaches, which are time-consuming, expensive, non-scalable and heavily reliant on specialized individuals asking the right questions of data.
"Our goal is to illuminate the state of innovation as it exists right now within the rapidly changing global landscape," said Fast Company editor Robert Safian. "That's why there are only five repeats on our Top 50 list from the list a year ago. In this economic environment, we all need to continually challenge our assumptions."
Most Innovative Companies is one of Fast Company's most significant and highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. The magazine's editors spend months gathering and analyzing data on companies around the globe. The resulting package emphasizes the breadth of companies with progressive, nimble business models, an ethos of sustainability, and a culture of creativity.
Fast Company's recognition of Ayasdi comes on the heels of having been named as, 6 Companies Using Big Data to Change Business, by Inc. Magazine and to AlwaysOn's OnCloud Top 100 list for 2015 list for being one of the most promising private companies in the business-to-business application and cloud infrastructure sectors.

Founded in 2008 after a decade of DARPA and NSF funded research at Stanford, Ayasdi has been named as one of the most innovative companies in big data by Fortune, Fast Company and others.
