Revolution Analytics Positioned in the “Visionaries” Quadrant of the First Ever Gartner Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms

Revolution Analytics, the only commercial provider of open source R software, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the first ever “Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms”i. The report evaluated 16 vendors through a series of stringent criteria related to the ability to execute and completeness of vision.

As defined by Gartner, “advanced analytics is ‘the analysis of all kinds of data using sophisticated quantitative methods (for example, statistics, descriptive and predictive data mining, simulation and optimization) to produce insights that traditional approaches to business intelligence (BI) — such as query and reporting — are unlikely to discover.’” "Overall, the advanced analytics market is estimated at $2 billion (by Gartner) across a wide variety of industries (financial services, retail and e-commerce, and communications are probably the largest, although use cases exist in almost every industry) and geographies.” “This market has existed for over twenty years, and some have considered it to be relatively stable and mature; a state of affairs that, if it was ever true, is no longer so as the concept of big data has not only accelerated interest in the market but also posed significant disruption to it.”

“We view our position in the ‘Visionaries’ Quadrant in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms as validation of the innovation in the open-source R community, combined with Revolution Analytics’ enterprise expertise. This is a core differentiator that has enabled our young company to strive in ‘Completeness of Vision,’” said Dave Rich, CEO of Revolution Analytics. “Revolution R Enterprise 7 is integrated with a variety of data and compute environments to bring new levels of efficiency and scalability to advanced analytics in the enterprise. Our mission has always been to democratize predictive analytics so more businesses can revolutionize their operations with data-driven insights.”

The Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platform says “Visionaries are usually smaller vendors that embody the trends that are shaping, or will shape, the market. They represent an opportunity for some organizations to skip a generation in the use of technology in the market, or provide some compelling capability that will offer competitive advantage as a complement or substitute for existing solutions. As Visionaries mature and prove their ability to execute over time, they may move to eventually become Leaders.”

Revolution Analytics’ flagship product, Revolution R Enterprise 7 (RRE 7) is the only Big Data Big Analytics platform powered by R, the standard for modern analytics. RRE 7 features a unique “write once deploy anywhere” functionality that enables data analysts and IT teams to write code once and deploy it anywhere in a variety of data management platforms, enterprise data warehouses, grids, clusters, servers and workstations without re-engineering costs. It is the only Big Data analytics platform to include a library of Big Data-ready algorithms that run inside the Cloudera and Hortonworks Hadoop platforms and in Teradata databases, with the highest possible performance. Revolution Analytics is now offering RRE 7 on AWS Marketplace for on-demand access to R-based analytics.
