Analyst house Gartner, Inc. has released its newest research highlighting four emerging solution providers that data and analytics leaders should consider as compliments to their existing architectures. Cool Vendors in Enterprise AI Governance and Ethical Response features information on startups that offer some disruptive capability or opportunity not common to the marketplace. Gartner analysts Van Baker, Saniye Alaybeyi, Alys Woodward, Svetlana Sicular, Erick Brethenoux, and Jim Hare compiled the materials for this report.
Solutions Review’s editors have read the complete report, which is available here, and want to take the opportunity to provide a brief, independent introduction to each of the cool vendors listed. Though Gartner’s process for selecting Cool Vendors is somewhat mysterious, we believe our unique view of the space can help you to better understand how these analytics solutions will fit into the marketplace as time goes on.
