Kognitio attributed its continued growth to the continued interest in Big Data and Hadoop, especially among mid- and large-sized organizations that face the ever-expanding need to analyze immense amounts of information in less time than before, while accessing it from multiple locations.
"Our ability to continue posting double-digit grown is the clearest sign of our continued success," said Steve Millard, Kognitio president and chief executive officer. "In-memory analytical platforms have attracted the awareness of the market; leading analysts like Gartner say that in-memory computing is 'racing towards mainstream adoption.' As a pioneer in this field, we are seeing greater interest, and that is resulting in a significant and continued increase in our business."
In the quarter just ended, Kognitio:
- Was featured in a report from the Bloor Group, "Why In-Memory Technology Will Dominate Big Data: In-Memory and the New BI." The report, from industry analyst Robin Bloor, cited the Kognitio in-memory Analytical Platform, saying it can provide companies with a significant strategic advantage over their less-advanced competitors and allow them to predict future trends, rather than merely reacting to past data points.
