Complementary solutions place powerful analytic capabilities in hands of business analysts via the cloud; Big Data insights require no IT department 'heavy lifting'
New York, NY - April 23, 2012 - In-memory data analytics pioneer Kognitio today announced an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) agreement with Alteryx, Inc., a leading provider of strategic analytics, under which the Kognitio Analytic Platform will offer data connectivity for Alteryx Strategic Analytics. The partnership will benefit companies seeking to obtain the greatest insight from Big Data via a cloud-based implementation, allowing them to get the answers they need from large volumes of information more quickly and cost-effectively than ever.
Together, Kognitio and Alteryx deliver significant benefits to customers across a range of industries, including consumer packaged goods (CPG), restaurants, retail and telecommunications. Companies in these industries increasingly require the need for immediate information as a way of maintaining their competitive marketplace advantage. They will be able to deploy a flexible desktop-to-cloud computing model, including through Kognitio Cloud, or will be able to install a Kognitio-powered data warehousing appliance at their on-premise data center. Both alternatives enable rapid installation, and feature low time-to-value.
"True strategic analytics require not only a powerful and intuitive user interface, but the capability to churn through Big Data sets from inside and outside the walls of the business, without the administration and data manipulation layers that have impeded the development of such systems in the past," said Michael Hiskey, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Kognitio. "Organizations using Alteryx Strategic Analytics will be able to leverage the Kognitio Analytic Platform, with its proven ability to rapidly analyze vast amounts of data, to get the insights they need to do business into today's competitive marketplace."
Hiskey noted that companies that choose Kognitio Cloud obtain significant cost and time benefits, including implementations without CapEx expenditures, the ability to flexibly scale the project based on changing requirements, or the need for additional IT staff to manage the project.
