Gartner Names 5 Cool Vendors in Analytics, 2016

Gartner Cool Vendors

Gartner’s newest resource highlights five new and emerging vendors in the analytics market that offer innovative alternatives to organizations that are looking to redefine the types of analysis that they are able to perform. Gartner’s 2016 Cool Vendors in Analytics report recommends that analytics leaders should expand to include areas where traditional Business Intelligence has not been suitable but where emerging analytics can help, adding: “Business analysts should re-evaluate problems that their current portfolio of tools struggles to analyze in light of the nontraditional approaches to analysis that these Cool Vendors enable.”

According to the technology research giant, much of the evolution that has taken place in the enterprise Business Intelligence market has come as a result not of innovation in what tools do, but how fast they do them. As a result, forward-thinking solution providers are attempting to develop new ways in which organizations can run analysis, not just making existing technologies quicker. The vendors outlines below, Gartner believes, represent a fundamental change in the scope of Data Analytics.
