NEWTON, Mass., Aug. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Attivio, the Data Dexterity Company, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned Attivio as a "Leader" in its 2015 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Search*, recognizing both Attivio's completeness of vision and ability to execute. For Attivio, the designation reflects its proven ability to help customers such as Cisco, UBS, National Instruments, Thermo Fisher, Intralinks, and Citi upgrade their search infrastructure and scale solutions cost-effectively.
According to Gartner's report, vendors in the Leader's quadrant demonstrate exceptional technological flexibility by addressing many use cases. They have a market vision that has enabled them to develop a defensible position. Their products are mature, complete (or nearly so) and fulfill a clear value proposition. They have some of the means to provide consumer-class search experiences on enterprises' public and private websites.
Attivio recently announced Attivio 5, the latest Attivio platform, which Gartner reviewed. Attivio 5 is uniquely able to unify all information types – structured data as well as semi-structured and unstructured content – and to provide powerful content analytics capabilities that enable organizations to deliver search-based applications to transform their businesses. Of note, Attivio 5 features advanced integrations with several analytics providers, including Tableau, Qliktech, and TIBCO Spotfire, which help enterprises bridge the search challenges associated with big data, business intelligence as well as traditional, strategic, search-based applications.
"We are honored by this recognition from Gartner for our work in enterprise search as we continue to help some of the world leading brands discover and extract value from their information assets," said Stephen Baker, CEO of Attivio. "As the enterprise search and Big Data markets continue to merge, we expect our agile, enterprise platform, Attivio 5, to extend our leadership position by enabling our customers to rapidly deploy an unlimited number of massively scalable, contextually-focused applications for the business, all from a single universal index. The innovation here is truly game-changing, especially for Big Data professionals."
Attivio recognizes that the next generation of enterprise search platforms is being asked to drive discovery and to accelerate innovation. As such, enterprise search must provide immediate data visibility, universal content analysis and enrichment, and support an agile, enterprise solution for security, application deployment, and scalability. In the future, customers will implement search-based solutions to transform Big Data challenges into significant growth opportunities.
"Organizations expect today's search technology to serve as a foundation for analyzing and understanding their content and data," said Whit Andrews, VP Distinguished Analyst and Hanns Koehler-Kruener, Research VP at Gartner. "Three out of five of the reference customers identified by the vendors in this Magic Quadrant indicated that they are already combining structured and unstructured data in their projects."
