We're pretty excited about earning a cool-factor nod from Gartner with its Cool Vendors in Analytics1, 2013 report.  Each year, Gartner identifies a select number of new Cool Vendors in key technology areas and publishes a series of research reports explaining companies that offer technologies or solutions that are innovative, impactful, and intriguing. According to the report, five vendors were chosen from a shortlist of 15 vendors nominated by analysts in Gartner's analytics research community.

 “At Opera Solutions, we build solutions, such as our Signal Hub, that use machine learning to extract predictive information from Big Data and turn it into prescriptive best actions that drive frontline productivity and bottom-line growth,” said Arnab Gupta, Chief Executive Officer at Opera Solutions. “We’re delighted and honored that Gartner has recognized our endeavors by designating us a Cool Vendor in Analytics."

Opera Solutions' Consumer Signal Hub integrates the Big Data flows from both inside and outside the enterprise and then uses advanced machine learning techniques to continually extract, store, and update predictive information, or Signals, from this data. The Consumer Signal Hub creates and makes available thousands of Signals for each customer, providing marketers with a new capability to rapidly develop powerful predictive models at the individual consumer level and execute real-time, segment-of-one marketing.
