We are honored to be recognized by the prestigious American Business Awards for creating a big data solution that drastically accelerates insight and time to value for some of the worlds’ largest companies.

Cambridge Semantics, the leading provider of Big Data management and analytics solutions, was named today as the winner of a Silver Stevie® Award in the Software - Big Data Solution category for its Anzo Graph Query Engine™ (AGQE) in The 15th Annual American Business Awards.

Anzo GQE was launched in March 2016 in an effort to better satisfy enterprise-wide data discovery and analytics challenges faced by IT organizations and business line users. It is a clustered, in-memory graph analytics engine that runs 100 times faster than its nearest competitor, permits users to ask any questions of their data, and can scale to handle diverse enterprise-wide data.

Powering Cambridge Semantics’ industry-leading Smart Data Lake product offering is the In-Memory Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) Engine - the most advanced of its kind – allowing ad-hoc and interactive queries at a scale never before thought possible. AGQE scales across hundreds of virtual machines in the cloud or on-premise for analyzing data sets comprising trillions of interconnected facts and relationships (triples) – without query tuning or indexing.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Tuesday, June 20.

“We are honored to be recognized by the prestigious American Business Awards for creating a big data solution that drastically accelerates insight and time to value for some of the worlds’ largest companies spanning Life Sciences, Financial Services and many other data intensive industries,” said Alok Prasad, president, Cambridge Semantics. “The Stevie award is a testament to our team’s relentless dedication to providing Smart Data Lake solutions that tackle complex data management and analytics challenges, enabling users to get answers to questions in seconds, minutes and hours, as opposed to weeks and months.”

“Each year the judges find the quality and variety of the nominations to be greater than the year before,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “The 2017 competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud.”

More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others.
