SAN MATEO, Calif. — January 3, 2018 — Arcadia Data, provider of the first native visual analytics software for big data, announced today that the company was recognized as a leader by Dresner Advisory Services in its 2017 Big Data Analytics Market Study, part of the Wisdom of Crowds® series of research, and as a winner of its 2017 Technology Innovation Award for Big Data Analytics.

In its first year in this report, Arcadia Data ranked as a leader among the 19 BI vendors included, was the top rated vendor in the Big Data Infrastructure category, and achieved a perfect score in Big Data Search.  Its impressive scores also led to being named as a top vendor within the Big Data/Data Access and the Big Data Distribution Support categories. Arcadia Data is offering a complimentary copy of the full report.

Modern data architectures are driving innovation in what is quickly becoming the new world of business intelligence. Arcadia Data is the first native visual analytics software that runs directly within modern data platforms such as Apache Hadoop and the cloud. Purpose-built to analyze large volumes of data without moving it, customers can fill the gap between self-service BI and advanced analytics on big data for use cases including cybersecurity, connected devices, and customer intelligence.

“We continue to expand this report to incorporate changing market dynamics, however, we remain dedicated to focusing on the combination of analytical solutions within the Hadoop ecosystem over the years to ensure users have meaningful multi-year comparisons and rich insight into emerging trends,” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “We are impressed by the continued growth and adoption of big data analytics, and congratulate Arcadia Data for being a winner of the Technology Innovation Award for Big Data Analytics and its performance in this year’s Big Data Analytics study.”

The 3rd annual report examines end user trends and intentions surrounding big data analytics, defined as systems that enable end-user access to and analysis of data contained and managed within the Hadoop ecosystem.

“Being named as a top vendor in the annual Dresner market study is an absolute honor. Simply put, the study underscores that legacy BI is no longer able to meet the innovative analytical needs of today’s organizations,” said Priyank Patel, co-founder and chief product officer at Arcadia Data. “The sentiment surrounding the importance of big data has shifted to unlocking insights not only for data scientists, but enabling business users to access and analyze all of the information available directly without requiring specialists to create summaries or extracts from big data systems. This is exactly why more and more customers are turning to the native BI architecture from Arcadia Data to solve modern BI challenges and benefit from our ability to deliver big data solutions directly to 100’s and 1000’s of business analysts and end-user customers.”
