Gartner Recognises i4C Analytics as a Significant Vendor in its Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms Report

i4C Analytics is one of only four European vendors to be included within the Gartner report

LONDON, UK, 3 March, 2014 - i4C Analytics, leading software vendor of advanced analytics, announced today that is has been included in Gartner's 2014 Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms report.

i4C Analytics is a privately owned company which has experienced 75% growth over the last year, with a significant focus on expanding its international network of partners and resellers. Its unique approach with a single, flexible platform is aimed at providing advanced analytics capabilities through APPs to a variety of businesses, across multiple vertical sectors. These include energy, finance and insurance, retail, telecommunications and manufacturing. The platform supports not only an advanced visual modelling approach for advanced users and data scientists; it also offers a simplified, automated approach which is aimed at business users and part-time analysts in order for them to glean valuable business insights. i4C Analytics APPs cover the whole spectrum of advanced analytics with forecasting, predictive and optimisation pillars.

As Gartner explains within the 2014 Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms report, "The growing demand for these types of capabilities is outpacing the supply of expert users, requiring significantly higher levels of productivity from skilled users as well as increasing the demand for "non-data-scientist-friendly" tools."

i4C Analytics' approach to advanced analytics enables the company to meet a distinct demand in the market, with businesses seeking to improve performance and services by unlocking valuable intelligence. Its APP-based value proposition is uniquely positioned in the market; business users can either build bespoke analytics software, or fine-tune one of the Application Configuration Environment-based APPs available in i4C Analytics' APP store.

"i4C Analytics is proud to be included in Gartner's 2014 Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms report. We believe our inclusion is testament to the work we have done to expand our client base, as we support leading companies in energy and financial services" said Fabio Nalucci, CEO, i4C Analytics. "As Gartner explores within the report, the interest in applying advanced analytics to business performance is rapidly expanding and the number of potential applications is largely unlimited. We are delighted to be one of the companies to be recognised in this ever-evolving market."

The advanced analytics market is estimated at $2 billion established across a wide variety of industries; Europe is currently one of the largest markets. In recent years, big data has resulted not only in an accelerated interest in the market, but has also posed significant disruption to an industry that has now existed for over 20 years.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
