Revolution Analytics named a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms

The entire team at Revolution Analytics is very proud to announce that Gartner has named Revolution Analytics a Visionary in the inaugural Gartner Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms, published February 19, 2014. The report evaluated 16 vendors through a series of stringent criteria related to the ability to execute and completeness of vision.

Revolution Analytics is positioned the furthest for Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute in the Visionaries Quadrant. We believe this is a validation of the leading-edge innovations of the open-source R community, and that of our own Revolution R Enterprise development team who continues to complement R with scalability, performance, and enterprise readiness. Here’s what CEO Dave Rich has to say:

“It’s such a pivotal moment for data scientists and the growing open-source R community that Gartner has embarked on its first ever Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms. Gartner estimates advanced analytics to be a $2 billion market that spans a broad array of industries globally, and ‘Gartner predicts business intelligence and analytics will remain top focus for CIOs Through 2017.’ We believe that this new Magic Quadrant puts a spotlight on big data as the great analytics disruptor and we feel highlights the need for solutions like Revolution Analytics’ that are built upon a flexible, open platform, and designed for today’s Big Data Big Analytics challenges.” — Dave Rich, CEO, Revolution Analytics
