San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) April 9, 2007
Skytide today announced it has been named a finalist for the Red Herring 100 North America 2007. The award will recognize the top 100 private companies based in North America that play a leading role in innovation and technology. Skytide was selected as a finalist from more than 800 companies for its innovative approach to business intelligence data analysis and its continuing business success.
The Red Herring editorial board diligently surveyed the entrepreneurial scene throughout North America and identified the top 200 companies that are leading the next wave of innovation. Skytide was recognized for its pioneering approach to business intelligence (BI) that allows companies to analyze massive volumes of varied data without a data warehouse.
"We are thrilled to be recognized by Red Herring for both our technology innovation and business success," said Keith Feingold, CEO of Skytide. "We have developed a new approach to business analytics that provides enterprises with direct, easy access to data from any data source, including large volumes of new types of data generated by Web traffic networks, e-commerce sites, communications networks and data centers. Our customers are using the Skytide Analytical Platform to increase operational efficiencies, cut costs, and gain valuable insights from data that has not been accessible to them before."
"We can see the exciting evolution of the technology sector reflected in the quality and variety of exceptional companies that we had to choose from in putting our list together," said Joel Dreyfuss, Editor-in-Chief of Red Herring. "It was tough to choose just 200 finalists from such a large list of excellent contenders, and we are very happy with the qualities of the companies we selected as Finalists."
