So, what’s new?

The example of Birst and GoodData shows BI’s future is in the cloud. So far all cloud solution have to live with a hybrid of deployed in the cloud or in an on-premises appliance. Birst success in winning deals is based on its functional breadth, depth and strength, ease of use and low cost of ownership value proposition. This makes Birst the “new darling” of the Magic Quadrant.

“Increasingly, Gartner sees more organizations building diagnostic analytics that leverage critical capabilities, such as interactive visualization, to enable users to drill more easily into the data to discover new insights. For example, visual patterns uncovered in the data might expose an inconsistent supply chain process that is the root cause of an organization’s ability to consistently reach its goal for on-time delivery.”

“If there were a single market theme in 2012, it would be that data discovery became a mainstream architecture. For years, data discovery vendors — such as QlikTech, Salient Management Company, Tableau Software and Tibco Spotfire — received more positive feedback than vendors offering OLAP cube and semantic-layer-based architectures.”

SmartCamp Winner Spotlight: Streetlight Data

StreetLight Data describes how people use their city. What web analytics does for e-commerce, we do for in-store commerce. We provide metrics like: for this corner on a typical Tuesday afternoon, what percent of people coming by are over 40? Make less than $60k/year? How many are going shopping? For the retail ecosystem this means answering questions that have never before been answered: Who is coming by my store and NOT coming in? We also open up insights that can radically improve transportation and urban planning. Our solutions depend on our Route Science(TM) engine, which puts messy transportation data in context, leveraging archival data exhaust from the location-based services industry.
