-- Big Data predictive analytics company selected for its track record of definitively driving profitability and growth for its commercial customers
MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan, the global growth consulting firm, has presented Opera Solutions with its 2013 Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership. The Big Data predictive analytics company was honored for its superior ability to drive measureable ROI and competitive advantage for its customers by combining human expertise, large-scale data management technology, and machine learning science. The company's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery model ensures that customers do not have to invest significantly in infrastructure or IT support to obtain rapid and significant value from today's Big Data flows.
Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value for its customers with a focus on improving the return on the investment that customers make in its services or products. The award recognizes the company's unparalleled focus on enhancing the value that its customers receive—beyond simply good customer service—leading to improved customer retention and customer base expansion. Frost & Sullivan bases its decision on extensive private market research and confidential interviews with end users and does not accept solicitations or applications for this award from nominees. The honor is awarded only when a candidate company meets Frost & Sullivan's criteria.
Opera Solutions' flagship offering, Signal Hubs™, continually extracts, updates, and stores the valuable predictive patterns and variances that exist in Big Data for large enterprises. Signal Hubs organize the variables in a way that allows scientists to easily access and use them in models focused on solving business issues such as recommending products to individual consumers, reducing churn, and warning of attrition and fraud.
Other popular offerings from Opera Solutions include Signal Products, which are cloud-based solutions that focus on applying advanced analytics to solve specific industry problems. Signal Products include: Hospital Revenue Leakage, SignalSensor™ Threat Assessment Platform, Signalytics™ Spend Intelligence Suite, and Mobiuss® Valuation and Risk Management. Signal Products and Signal Hubs can be implemented in the customer's business processes in two to three months or less.
The company also offers Analytics Partnerships, service and technology-based offerings that help clients accelerate their Big Data strategies and initiatives.
"Opera Solutions' distinguishing features include its highly advanced Signal Hubs, Signal Products, and a massive repository of predictive Signals, which combined with the company's staff of industry-leading scientists, business domain experts, and software developers, puts the company in a strong competitive position in the global Big Data analytics market," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Director Jeff Cotrupe.
With a goal to offer best-in-class solutions and services, the company leverages its technological expertise to develop highly scalable technology that can effectively respond to the diverse complexities of Big Data. Opera Solutions flexibly handles all data forms (structured, semi-structured and unstructured), as well as the data warehouse system used and the processing approach. It works on top of all major databases (Oracle, SAP, Teradata) and integrates with HPCC, SAP HANA, and Oracle's Big Data Appliance and Exalytics In-Memory Machine, as well as Hadoop.
The company is also distinct in its method of prepackaging advanced machine learning science and providing a new capability for companies and government to rapidly turn raw Big Data flows into value. In addition, Signal Hubs allow scientists to skip the difficult step of transforming lab models into production-ready models. Similarly, its Signal Products leverage innovative scientific approaches, package user-friendly technology, and deliver the solutions through an IT-light, cloud-based method.
"Opera Solutions' products are designed for a wide array of requirements, such as identifying credit card and healthcare fraud, matching individual consumers with the most likely next product they are likely to buy, finding new savings opportunities for procurement operations, and forecasting the sales of a specific apparel brand in a retail store," noted Cotrupe. "Its diversity of offerings and ability to focus on a wide stratum of market segments give it an enviable position in the market."

Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
