StatSoft Recognized in Magic Quadrant™ Announcement at BI Summit
Information technology research and advisory firm Gartner has unveiled its Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms, publicly highlighting StatSoft’s position with top-tier “ability to execute” advanced solutions.
This particular quadrant report, new to Gartner’s offerings, was released February 24 in a brief session at the Gartner Business Intelligence and Information Management Summit in Sydney, Australia.
Darrel Amarasekera, Managing Director of StatSoft Pacific, was among the audience of vendors and executives, whom he described as “enthusiastic [and] very, very attentive” while Gartner Research Director Lisa Kart skimmed through the report’s contents.
Kart specifically drew the audience’s attention to StatSoft’s status as a new entrant among the top three vendors capable of executing advanced solutions. She shared with the audience some of the strengths of the STATISTICA platform. In the downloadable report (sign-in required), these strengths address STATISTICA’s wide range of functionality with a broad variety of data types; high customer satisfaction with advanced descriptive and predictive analytics; and scalability. In addition, StatSoft was reported with some of the highest evaluations for product reliability and upgrade experience, and STATISTICA was most frequently selected for license cost and speed of model deployment.
Previously, Gartner analysts had combined business intelligence with analytics in their annual Magic Quadrant research reports. However, recent industry changes with big data and predictive analytics have prompted them to develop a standalone “Advanced Analytics” category this year.
