Profitect Kicks off 2017 with Continued Momentum Heading into NRF Presentation

Over 200% growth in customer portfolio and revenue, alongside 75% increase in staff contributed to a successful 2016

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - January 13, 2017) - Profitect Inc., the leading prescriptive analytics provider for the retail industry, today announced growth statistics for 2016, revealing a revenue increase of over 250 percent compared to 2015. This, alongside a reported twofold increase in customer portfolio, mirrors the retail industry's desire to make better use of their data with actionable analytics solutions. In addition to its already impressive list of clients, Profitect partnered with Ascena Retail Group's Lane Bryant and Catherines divisions as well as ASDA to give store managers a holistic view of shopper behavior, loss prevention and Internet of Things data management. Profitect's modules work in tandem to maximize value, offering analytics to operations such as inventory or sales. Customers leveraging additional modules and expanding to new organizations in the business served as a significant driver for 2016's revenue increase.

Profitect CEO Guy Yehiav will be discussing these data analytics capabilities and the potential for retailers to leverage the Internet of Things at NRF 2017. Alongside Seth Hughes, Senior Manager of Asset Protection Solutions at Walgreens and Andrea Weiss, founder of the O Alliance, Yehiav will cover retail's relationship with IoT and how prescriptive analytics utilizes machine learning to maximize the value of the Internet of Things.

"If you look at the successes we've seen in 2016, it is the combination of two major influences," said Guy Yehiav, CEO and Chairman of Profitect. "The first, of course, is the hard work our internal team does on a daily basis to make sure our customers are using a simple, easy to deploy solution which makes their lives easier, generating strong monetary value. The second is reflective of a wider industry trend, as businesses -- not only retailers but organizations across a variety of verticals -- are turning to prescriptive analytics and machine learning capabilities to become as efficient and effective as possible. There is a unique potential in prescriptive intelligence to create an almost self sustaining system of identifying profit increasing opportunities and flagging them appropriately in real time. It's a trend that is only primed to grow as we look toward the future."

To help support this uptick in revenue and customer base, Profitect has brought on additional talent, growing the internal team by 75 percent since 2016 began. The Profitect team now includes David Schwab, founder of Vertical Venture Partners and Brian Burns, co-founder of Grayhawk Capital, both of whom now sit on the Board of Directors. The addition of these new Board members follows an expansion of Profitect's international team, as Yonatan Olsha was brought on as Managing Director of EMEA in October 2016 . The most recent hire of Art Dirik as Chief Customer Officer strengthens Profitect's industry leading customer operations and will be a core focus of the organization in the coming year. The company's continued commitment to bringing on top tier talent continues through 2017, as it looks to expand its Waltham, Massachusetts based office.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
