i4C Analytics Significant Vendor in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant Report
i4C Analytics, leading software vendor of advanced analytics, announced today that it has been included in Gartner’s 2014 Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms report.
i4C Analytics is a privately owned company which has experienced 75% growth over the last year, with a significant focus on expanding its international network of partners and resellers. Its unique approach with a single, flexible platform is aimed at providing advanced analytics capabilities through APPs to a variety of businesses, across multiple vertical sectors. These include energy, finance and insurance, retail, telecommunications and manufacturing. The platform supports not only an advanced visual modelling approach for advanced users and data scientists; it also offers a simplified, automated approach which is aimed at business users and part-time analysts in order for them to glean valuable business insights. i4C Analytics APPs cover the whole spectrum of advanced analytics with forecasting, predictive and optimisation pillars.
As Gartner explains within the 2014 Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms report, “The growing demand for these types of capabilities is outpacing the supply of expert users, requiring significantly higher levels of productivity from skilled users as well as increasing the demand for ‘non-data-scientist-friendly’ tools.”
i4C Analytics’ approach to advanced analytics enables the company to meet a distinct demand in the market, with businesses seeking to improve performance and services by unlocking valuable intelligence. Its APP-based value proposition is uniquely positioned in the market; business users can either build bespoke analytics software, or fine-tune one of the Application Configuration Environment-based APPs available in i4C Analytics’ APP store.
“i4C Analytics is proud to be included in Gartner’s 2014 Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms report. We believe our inclusion is testament to the work we have done to expand our client base, as we support leading companies in energy and financial services,” said Fabio Nalucci, CEO, i4C Analytics. “As Gartner explores within the report, the interest in applying advanced analytics to business performance is rapidly expanding and the number of potential applications is largely unlimited. We are delighted to be one of the companies to be recognised in this ever-evolving market.”
The advanced analytics market is estimated at $2 billion established across a wide variety of industries; North America is currently one of the largest markets. In recent years, big data has resulted not only in an accelerated interest in the market, but has also posed significant disruption to an industry that has now existed for over 20 years.
