SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HG Data Company, a "big data" startup tracking the use of enterprise technology, has been selected as one of "30 companies to watch" in 2013 by market research firm Outsell.
At the beginning of each year Outsell identifies innovators globally, both big and small, that are disrupting the information industry through novel but significant breakthroughs in business models. Outsell then designates 30 companies that are trendsetters.
HG Data's sophisticated analytics extracts business intelligence from millions of Web documents globally and combines it with offline sources and proprietary systems using artificial intelligence. The result is a database of millions of profiles of enterprise technology usage, a highly granular resource for technology vendors.
"This year we chose companies because of their particular focus in breaking business models," explained Outsell in releasing the 2013 roster of innovative companies. HG Data's methodology is shaking up the company-information industry because machine-learning disrupts an activity traditionally performed through manual processes including telephone surveys.
