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
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

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

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
