The annual research reports are based on data collected from end users and provide a real-world perspective on various technical capabilities related to the business intelligence (BI) and analytics markets.

Dresner awarded accolades to vendors in a number of categories. The analyst firm recognized Arcadia Data for its technology leadership in the 2018 Big Data Analytics Market Study. According to Dresner, the big data analytics category refers to systems that enable end-user access to and analysis of data contained and managed within the Hadoop ecosystem.

“Arcadia Data is honored by the recognition of its leadership in big data analytics from Dresner,” said Sushil Thomas, co-founder and CEO, Arcadia Data. “It is clear that organizations need purpose-built solutions to elicit value from data in modern platforms, such as Hadoop, Kafka, and the cloud. Arcadia Data has worked hard to help customers democratize data through capabilities like search-based business intelligence, visual analytics on streaming data, and AI-enabled features. We look forward to continuing to innovate and enable improved access to and analytics on big data for all users.”

Many of today’s BI and analytics tools require users to think in terms of data sets and fields when analyzing their data or rely on data scientists and analysts to generate insights. Arcadia Data has focused on developing and delivering technology to market that addresses these pain points by furthering the consumerization of data and analytics. Innovations as a result of this investment include:

  • Search-based BI and analytics native to Hadoop and the cloud for Arcadia Enterprise, which makes deriving value from organizational data as easy as using an Internet search engine.
