Gartner Names ClearStory Data a 2014 “Cool Vendor” in Big Data

PALO ALTO, CA–(Marketwired – May 8, 2014) – ClearStory Data, the company that’s bringing Data Intelligence to everyone, today announced that Gartner, Inc. named ClearStory as one of four “Cool Vendors” in its 2014 Big Data report.

The April 28, 2014 Gartner “Cool Vendors in Big Data, 2014” report evaluates four big data companies with innovative approaches, tools and technologies. According to the report, “As big data matures, vendors are populating an ecosystem that tackles a full data life cycle: ingesting, securing, cloud provisioning and analyzing.” Further the report calls out, “It is not enough anymore for vendors to focus on one use case or technology category. Vendors need to differentiate, crossing multiple categories, such as cloud and analytics, or security and big data.”

ClearStory Data’s data intelligence approach quickly uncovers important answers spanning disparate data sources that other last generation and “big data analytics” technologies simply cannot because they can’t scale, they require time-intensive data modeling and manipulation, and they depend on data experts and IT skill sets. ClearStory changes all that with a new approach so anyone can now access disparate data, use ClearStory’s Intelligent Data Harmonization™ to converge data-on-the-fly, and quickly reach visual, collaborative insights all within a simple user experience. By making it easier and faster, ClearStory opens new doors for every business user and analyst.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of Gartner’s Cool Vendors in Big Data,” says Sharmila Mulligan, CEO of ClearStory Data. “We are delivering a new, unique and accessible end-to-end Data Intelligence solution — combining a powerful backend processing system with a breakthrough usability model — to speed analysis of diverse data, answer new questions and enable faster decisions via active collaborative analysis.”
