Revolution Analytics Wins Top Data Science Technology Innovator Award by DataWeek

Revolution Analytics, the leading commercial provider of software, services and support for the open source R project, today announced that it has been named a winner of the DataWeek Awards. Revolution Analytics was selected as a top innovator in the category of "Data Science Technology," one of more than a dozen categories highlighting the most innovative areas of the data industry.

"Enterprises need a fully customizable and scalable way to analyze unique data sets of all shapes and sizes, and the demand for flexible solutions is growing with the data" said Dave Rich, CEO of Revolution Analytics. "We are thrilled that DataWeek has recognized Revolution Analytics as a top data science technology innovator and we look forward to delivering best-in-class analytics solutions to our customers for years to come."

Revolution R Enterprise 6, the company's commercial-grade analytics software, is built upon the world's most powerful data analysis software, the open source R statistics language. Designed for enterprise-class data analytics, Revolution R Enterprise delivers unmatched performance, productivity and scalability, allowing customers to quickly and efficiently manage growing data sets for statistical analysis without having to invest in additional or specialized tools or talent.

"We are happy to recognize some of the best talent in the industry today," said Geoff Domoracki, CEO of DataWeek. "We would like to create a platform for innovative companies to have a forum to discuss how big data can be harnessed. In an information economy, data is the new capital. Corporations are unlocking the value in their terabytes of data, city governments are opening up their city data for public use, and thousands of 'data startups' are building on top of emerging social data feeds. The Data Revolution is when business and society realizes that data is not just how you analyze your business: data is your business. We succeed in business, technology, and society when we join a new ecosystem of data feeds, data infrastructure, data technologies, and data markets."

DataWeek Award winners were announced this week. They will also be recognized at the DataWeek 2012 Conference & Festival, which will take place at the SPUR Urban Center in San Francisco from September 24-27, 2012.

At the event, Revolution Analytics Vice President of Marketing and Community David Smith will participate in a panel discussion on technologies driving the big data revolution. The discussion, which will take place at the 111 Minna Gallery/SPUR on Monday, September 24, at 10:00 a.m., will focus on how big data tools have given organizations new power over data that was never before possible.

Revolution Analytics will also sponsor an R Lab from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 25 at the 111 Minna Gallery. For more information, please visit
