Skytide makes a robust BI solution a reality for companies that previously considered themselves too small or without sufficient resources to ever afford such a solution. We expect many more end users to come to see the advantages of deep data analysis with innovations like Skytide.
San Mateo, Calif. (PRWEB) March 2, 2007
Skytide, a leading provider of next-generation analytical solutions, today announced that it has been selected to receive a CRM WizKids Award from Beagle Research Group, LLC for its innovative business intelligence (BI) application. The CRM WizKids Awards honor emerging companies with innovative products and ideas that are on the leading edge of the front office market.
The Skytide Analytical Platform is the first BI software that links traditional and non-traditional data sources to uncover the hidden details behind a company's key business metrics. Because Skytide operates on data where it resides - without a data warehouse or any ETL required - companies are able to analyze large data volumes in near real-time. It is also the first and only solution available today that can understand complex data from virtually any source, including semi-structured data such as log files, XML, and HTML. And since Skytide uses XML to tie together different pieces of the BI stack into a small-footprint, "virtual" technology stack, customers enjoy dramatically reduced cost, complexity and time-to-implement.
"Skytide solves a problem that many small and medium businesses have--how to get necessary business analysis functionality without the overhead, costs, and risks associated with conventional analysis solutions," said Denis Pombriant of Beagle Research. "Skytide makes a robust BI solution a reality for companies that previously considered themselves too small or without sufficient resources to ever afford such a solution. We expect many more end users to come to see the advantages of deep data analysis with innovations like Skytide."
