Quiterian and its Business Analytics platform Quiterian Analytics appears in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for BI Platforms report for “providing data discovery tools with predictive analytics, and allowing business analysts to conduct ‘visual data mining’ without relying on the specialized skills of a data scientist”.
Gartner presented at the Business Intelligence Summit 2012, on February 6 and 7 in London, the results of their Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms report. In this report, Gartner Research reflects its views on main trends and BI and PM software providers. This includes who should be taken into account by any organization interested in purchasing a BI platform to identify business opportunities and speed its decision-making processes. Quiterian and its Quiterian Analytics software were placed among these suppliers.
Specifically, Quiterian appeared in the Magic Quadrant Customer Survey Research Notes, for which its customers’ opinions and reviews were extremely valuable. In the Research Notes of the Magic Quadrant for BI Platforms report, Gartner referred to Quiterian as:
“effectively a large-scale data discovery offering, its core value proposition is easing the use of data mining and statistical analysis, and thus making these capabilities more broadly available.”
The original extract of the Magic Quadrant Customer Survey Research Notes states:
“Quiterian, based in Spain, provides data discovery tools with predictive analytics, and allows business analysts to conduct ‘visual data mining’ without relying on the specialized skills of a data scientist. Quiterian and its Dynamic Data Web (DDWeb) product (now called Quiterian Analytics) were introduced to Gartner in 2010, but have been available in the company's home market since 2003 where the company has a good presence and reference base. Effectively a large-scale data discovery offering, its core value proposition is easing the use of data mining and statistical analysis, and thus making these capabilities more broadly available. However, this means it'll be up against some stiff competition, notably from IBM (SPSS) and SAS (in particular JMP), as well as from Tibco Software (Spotfire), which offers a similar value proposition for complex data discovery and advanced analytics. Technically, DDWeb uses an intermediate processing layer on top of its own columnar database — Quiterian FastDB, released in 2011 — to enable BI functionality (for example, predictive analysis). Quiterian (quiterian.com) has been expanding its geographical reach, having opened offices in Portugal, Mexico and the U.S. in 2010, as well as through a growing international value-added reseller channel with 12 new partners in the U.S. and Canada, and other partners in the Asia/Pacific market.”
