      If you were to liken analytics to the car market, Platfora would be Tesla and SAS would be Mercedes.

      Information Week

      Business users don’t care about the underlying mechanisms for speeding Hadoop performance; they care about the ease of performing analytics and the range of analytics that they can perform – and that is Platfora’s key opening to the enterprise market.

      Ovum Research

      Platfora’s new release has some pretty sweet features.

      GigaOM

      Platfora Big Data Analytics 3.0, a Hadoop-based business intelligence solution that lets users correlate event-driven data to better contextualize metrics. It also packs an object-based “data catalog” that structures information around customers, products and others points of interest.

      SiliconANGLE

      Platfora Big Data Analytics 3.0 masks the complexity of Hadoop and allows business users to visualize and see patterns and paths of interaction across structured data sets and the massive new data sets of Web/clickstream, mobile, events and the Internet of Things.

      Information Management

      It’s offering entirely new technology that fills lots of gaps in exploration, analysis and visualization on top of Hadoop.

      InformationWeek

      Platfora is quickly making its way up the Big Data foodchain.

      SiliconANGLE

      Scrambling for a middle ground amid these two extremes is San Mateo-based startup Platfora, whose strategy is to disrupt the disruptors.  With a bold proclamation, "BI is BS," Platfora is reintroducing its own Big Data Analytics Platform (BDAP) as version 3.0.

      Tom’s IT Pro

      We see great use cases for this new platform in the market . . . these improvements in the Platfora capability can have a direct and immediate impact on a wide range of missions and organizations.

      Unlike other traditional BI tools, Platfora makes it possible for key decision makers to tap directly into the power of Hadoop, enabling us to know more and make fact-based decisions that result in better customer experiences and increased business effectiveness.

      We believe that in the future, most decisions will be based on data. If we have the ability for every Edmunds employee to make decisions based on data, we will have a huge advantage over our competitors. Our users recognized the power of Platfora immediately, literally within seconds of using it.

      Gregory Rokita, Senior Director of Architecture | Edmunds.com

      Thanks to Platfora Big Data Analytics, we have automated the entire Hadoop data pipeline and our analysts can now slice and dice against all our enterprise data. Platfora literally masks the complexity of Hadoop and gives us unprecedented access to facts that we need to drive customer value and retention.

      MdotM

      Platfora Big Data Analytics allows us to visually analyze the huge amount of data we have in Hadoop effortlessly and beautifully. We are excited to be a design partner on Platfora's next generation of event analysis and segmentation capabilities.

      Tobi Lutke, CEO | Shopify

      At Disney-ABC Television, we believe that Big Data Analytics gives us the facts to continually improve the user experience and product for our viewers. The media landscape has evolved dramatically with the convergence of streaming video, mobile consumption, and over-the-top technologies. Our goal is to obtain deep customer insights that enable us to be in lock-step with where our consumers are going. Unlike other traditional BI tools, Platfora makes it possible for key decision makers to tap directly into the power of Hadoop, enabling us to know more and make fact-based decisions that result in better customer experiences and increased business effectiveness.
