Strategy Companion Makes First Appearance in Magic Quadrant Report for Business Intelligence & Analytics Platforms

Strategy Companion, a leading provider of browser-based Business Intelligence solutions, today announced it has been included by Gartner, Inc. in the 2013 Magic Quadrant report for Business Intelligence & Analytics Platforms.

“Everyone on our very talented team is pleased to see that not only have we made our first appearance in the Gartner Magic Quadrant report for BI & Analytics Platforms, but also how well we did in comparison to even many of the biggest BI vendors who offer much more expensive solutions,” said Bob Abernethy, SVP & GM of Strategy Companion. “We believe this is strong evidence that our completely zero-footprint, browser-based approach to Business Intelligence is paying big dividends to our customers and partners who are now for the first time able to move away from the older, more costly, and more complex client-server architecture of the 1990s to finally be able to take full advantage of all the many benefits The Modern Web has to offer, using nothing more than a web browser.

“We invite everyone to learn more about this new approach to BI by downloading our white paper titled ‘Business Intelligence and The Modern Web,’” said Abernethy.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
