Three Advanced Analytics Solution Providers in Asia/Pacific Named IDC Innovators

SINGAPORE, January 31st, 2019 – IDC published its latest report, IDC Innovators: Asia/Pacific Next-Generation Advanced Analytics, 2018, which profiles three emerging vendors that were recognized for their unique advanced analytics offerings for enterprise customers. The three companies named as IDC Innovators are Niometrics, Yellowfin, and 4Paradigm.

IDC defines advanced analytics solutions as tools (including data mining and statistical software) that use a range of techniques to create, test, and execute statistical models by leveraging machine learning, regression, neural network, rule induction, and clustering techniques. These companies identified as IDC Innovators have developed software, platform, and in some cases, services that are intuitive to use for enterprise customers to make predictions and discover relationships that are hidden or too complex to be extracted using traditional query and multidimensional analysis software.

"Realizing the shortage of data-scientist talents with in-depth domain expertise, enterprises have turned to advanced analytics solutions in the hopes of overcoming their unique challenges across various dimensions," said Thomas Jing, Associate Market Analyst for Big Data, Analytics and Cognitive/Artificial Intelligence Practice at IDC Asia/Pacific. "These intelligent solutions with machine learning capabilities can simplify the implementation process as they constantly look for improvement within organization workflows and accelerate the deployment of these solutions."

Niometrics leverages on its Deep Network Analytics (DNA), a high-performance network data technology that enables communication service providers (comm. SPs) to understand more about their customers' preferences and generate personalized insights for better customer experiences.

Yellowfin specializes in sending out predefined alerts to users in real time and avoid analysis fatigue with its automated end-to-end solution. It also offers products such as 'Signal' and 'Stories' that are intuitive to use and easy to understand and collaborate.

4Paradigm offers high-dimensional, self-learning analytics solutions for enterprise users. With its one- click feature, users of various technical backgrounds can create, train, and easily deploy advanced machine-learning models to solve their data challenges.
