Dell Positioned in the “Challengers” Quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms

  • Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

ROUND ROCK, Texas--()--Dell today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Challengers" quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms (February 2015).i

The Gartner Magic Quadrant is a graphical portrayal of vendor performance in a market segment, including categories for leaders, challengers, visionaries and niche players. Criteria by which the vendors are measured include a company's completeness of vision and ability to execute.

According to the Gartner reporti, “Growing interest in applying the results of advanced analytics to improve business performance is rapidly expanding the number of potential applications of this technology and its audience across organizations. Rather than being the domain of a few select groups (for example, those responsible for marketing and risk management), every function now has a legitimate interest in this capability.”

With a 30-year track record and millions of users worldwide, Dell’s Statistica advanced analytics software solution delivers a wide range of data mining, predictive analytics and data visualization capabilities. Dell Statistica combines comprehensive statistical analysis with advanced analytics to help organizations better understand their businesses, predict change, increase agility, and control critical systems. In addition, with Statistica’s recently launched big data analytics module, which integrates big data analytics capabilities from Dell’s Kitenga solution directly into the Statistica platform, users have the ability to crawl various forms of unstructured data – including web content and social data – and write that data directly to Hadoop Distributed File Systems (HDFS) to further facilitate in-depth big data analytics.
