SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of key players in the global big data analytics market, Frost & Sullivan honored Datameer with the 2015 Frost & Sullivan Award for Growth Excellence Leadership. The award is a testament to Datameer's market success in democratizing big data analytics and its overall leadership in technological innovation, customer impact, and company growth.
As the only end-to-end, self-service big data analytics platform purpose-built for Hadoop, Datameer ensures quick time to insights regardless of data size, type or source. The entire big data analytics process of data integration, preparation, analytics and visualization is driven by business analysts instead of IT, which significantly reduces the complexity and overall cost of data discovery when compared to traditional BI approaches. Datameer delivers the power of Hadoop to business analysts in a familiar spreadsheet-like interface that eliminates the need for coding.
After a rigorous review process of all of the vendors in the data discovery and visualization category, such as Pentaho, TIBCO, Microstrategy and Qlik, Frost & Sullivan narrowed the decision down to three key finalists. As the winner in the category, Datameer was recognized for pioneering the Hadoop-based data discovery technology that has transformed the way business users analyze big data from disparate sources. Moreover, it highlights Datameer's ability to enable non-technical users from a wide range of industries to improve their decision-making process and become highly data-driven.
"Companies want to empower their analysts to derive intelligence from data and generate quick insights that drive the best business decisions," said Hiral Jasani, industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "This award recognizes Datameer's excellent product and distribution strategy around self-service, Hadoop-based data integration, preparation, analysis and visualization to help business analysts get key insights with unprecedented speed and ease."
"This award is great validation of our continuing efforts to remove the barriers between business analysts and big data," said Stefan Groschupf, CEO of Datameer. "Our team's investment in our products and customer success is what makes this company a market leader and we will continue to push the boundaries of customer expectations."
To identify the winner of the award, Frost & Sullivan industry analysts compared all of the vendors in the data discovery and visualization category and ranked each solution's performance against 10 criteria in growth performance and customer impact. Analysts conducted in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify truly breakthrough companies. Companies recognized as best in class excel in three key areas: meeting customer demand, fostering brand loyalty, and carving out a unique, sustainable market niche.
