Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
Opera Solutions, the Big Data predictive analytics company, announced today that it has been awarded the Customer Value Leadership Award from Frost & Sullivan. The prestigious award from the global growth consulting firm is presented to the company whose products and services create the most value and return on investment for its customers.
The award recognizes a company’s “inordinate focus on enhancing the value that its customers receive, beyond simply good customer service, leading to improved retention and ultimately customer-based expansion.” To earn the award, a company’s end users and other market participants must confirm that its products and services lead to significant and measureable ROI. Frost & Sullivan does not accept solicitations or applications for this award from nominees, instead basing its decisions on extensive private market research and confidential interviews with end users. The honor is not necessarily awarded each year — only when a candidate company meets the consultancy’s criteria.
“We are honored and humbled by this award,” said Opera Solutions CEO Arnab Gupta. “The fact that, unsolicited by us, our customers and prospects have singled us out as the company whose products provide the most substantial ROI in the Big Data/analytics space is a testament to the brilliance and dedication of our scientists, domain experts, and technologists throughout our company.”
In a report detailing its reasoning, Frost & Sullivan states, “Machine learning science is at the heart of Opera Solutions’ differentiation. Not only does the company have one of the largest contingents in private industry today but its scientists represent 20 respective disciplines, ranging from computational neuroscience to behavioral economics.” It continues, “Its differentiated attributes include industry-proven and highly qualified manpower resources (scientists, business domain experts, software developers), diverse machine learning expertise, a massive repository of predictive Signals, and technological competency.”
This award is the latest in a string of recognitions for Opera Solutions. In the past 12 months, the company was designated a Gartner Cool Vendor in Analytics, ranked as the #2 pure-play Big Data company in the world by Wikibon, and cited in Data 2.0 Summit’s crowd-sourced list of the top 150 innovators in the cloud data space. The company consistently appears at the top of the leaderboards of global scientific contests, including the Netflix Prize, the Heritage Health Prize, and the KDD Cup. It recently placed first in the Personalize Expedia Hotel Searches contest, hosted by Kaggle, besting more than 300 of the world’s most accomplished data scientists.
