Terapeak Continues to Gain Traction in Market, Captures Industry Notice

Terapeak, the leading source for analyzing, understanding and predicting consumer and product behavior in ecommerce, is rapidly gaining momentum as online sellers recognize the value of actionable intelligence from big data and Terapeak’s groundbreaking solutions in this arena. As the first authorized analytics provider of eBay market data, Terapeak has maintained a strong growth trajectory as the ecommerce sector continues to transform retail.

eBay’s recent 2013 full year and fourth-quarter earnings report reflected strong revenue and growth, with earnings rising to $4.5 billion for the final quarter and 21% volume acceleration resulting in 14% revenue growth for the year as a whole. Given that backdrop, it’s not surprising that Terapeak has also enjoyed exceptional success in that time period since the company is an integral part of the success of many online entrepreneurs, ecommerce merchants and Fortune 500 firms through its unique marketplace intelligence solutions.

In the last quarter of 2013, Terapeak released a free version of its MySales multichannel ecommerce intelligence tool. MySales allows merchants who sell on eBay, Amazon and Magento to view all of their sales data in one dashboard and identify trends. MySales also helps Terapeak customers by providing visibility into their own traffic data, allowing them to see how many times a prospect has viewed their items. Although MySales was released as a free product only in the last 3 months, it now boasts more than 100,000 accounts created.

Close to 3 million merchants are now using Terapeak's Analytics through one of its ecommerce products and this number continues to grow rapidly. "Ultimately, Terapeak users are more successful than non-users because they have marketplace visibility and are able to make informed decisions.” says Kevin North, CEO of Terapeak.

According to Glen Scott, a Terapeak customer and owner of Petsporium on eBay, "The more research I did, the more I was convinced that by using Terapeak, I could create a whole new business. That was six months ago. Thanks to Terapeak, I had a record number of sales last month and am on track for another record this month."

Another eBay merchant and Terapeak customer, David Rapport of Ekusparts on eBay says, "I would need to add another full-time employee to replace the contribution that Terapeak makes to my business. Determining price, availability of product and demand without eBay research would take someone hours every day."

In calendar year 2013, Terapeak merchants sold more than $4.4 billion on eBay platforms worldwide. In fact, 31.5% of merchants who gross more than $1 million per month in eBay sales used Terapeak last year. Also according to Terapeak’s 2013 data, Terapeak merchants sold to an average of 7.6 million buyers each month and sold more than 120 million items. Its market share of eBay by gross sales of merchandise is 6.2%.

Terapeak’s innovative products and rapid growth have gained notice from industry leaders. Honors in 2013 included a #43 rank on Deloitte Technology’s prestigious Fast 50 list, SIIA Software’s CODiE Award for Best Big Data Solution and the #150 spot on PROFIT Magazine’s list of 500 high-growth companies. Terapeak was founded in Canada in 2004 and opened its Silicon Valley headquarters in 2012.

“Back in 1997, eBay changed retail as we know it,” observes Mr. North. “eBay democratized retail so that virtually anyone with a product, new or old, could sell online. Our role is to put the power of Big Data in the hands of online merchants, democratizing the knowledge of how products behave in ecommerce, on marketplaces such as eBay, Amazon and Yahoo! Japan.”

Terapeak analyzes more than 4.6 billion transactions per year and more than $70 billion in online consumer spending worldwide, providing 1.3 million merchants with applied market intelligence used to increase margins, grow revenue, generate consumer loyalty and ensure customer satisfaction. In the last 5 years, Terapeak's revenues have grown 440%. Find out more:

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
