Software AG Cited as a Leader in Streaming Analytics by Independent Research Firm
Darmstadt, Germany, Wednesday, September 25, 2019
Software AG today announced that Forrester Research Inc., a leading industry analyst firm, has named Software AG a ‘Leader’ in The Forrester Wave™: Streaming Analytics, Q3 2019 report for its Apama solution.
According to the Forrester report, “Software AG sets the vision for real-time, industrial IoT. Software AG’s Apama is a full-featured streaming analytics platform that is well suited for any and all real-time applications, on-premises, in the cloud, and at the edge. It hails from the high-speed, unforgiving world of financial trading, so it’s fast and it won’t go down.”
Forrester said that these properties “make Apama an exceptional fit for real-time, industrial IoT applications in manufacturing, supply chain, and field operations, which are also unforgiving, mission-critical environments.”
Dr. Stefan Sigg, Chief Product Officer, Software AG, said: “Real-time analytics are critical for organizations wanting to add value to their data. With Apama, especially as an integral part of our Cumulocity IoT cloud platform, companies can connect, collect, manage and analyze data anywhere to get maximum competitive advantage.”
The report ranked 11 of the most significant streaming analytics vendors against 26 criteria. According to the report, “depth and breadth of analytics types on streaming data are critical. But that is all for naught if streaming analytics vendors cannot also scale to handle potentially huge volumes of streaming data. Also, it’s critical that streaming analytics can be deployed where it is most needed, such as on-premises, in the cloud, and/or at the edge.”
Apama helps organizations gain instant insights from fast-moving big data which can then help them to predict what is likely to happen next – and identify and act on risks and opportunities immediately.
Dr. Jürgen Krämer, General Manager IoT & Analytics, Software AG, added: “Apama gives enterprises the ability to act quickly on real-time data - to attract, delight and retain customers - and to realize operational efficiencies that can help them to save money and reduce errors. We are thrilled that Forrester has recognized Apama as a leader in this field.”
