Gartner Names Algorithmia Top Cool Vendor Data Science 2016

Algorithmia is excited to announce that it has been selected as a Gartner Cool Data Science vendor for 2016.

Gartner’s annual Cool Vendor report identifies the five most innovative, impactful, and intriguing data science vendors help analytics leaders solve hard problems, and automate and scale their advanced analytics.

Algorithmia provides an open marketplace for algorithms, where developers can create, share, and remix the building blocks of algorithmic intelligence at scale.

On Algorithmia, algorithms run as serverless microservices, where a function can be written once—in any programming language—and then made available as part of a universal API, hosted on scalable infrastructure in the cloud.

This type of platform enables analytics leaders to quickly extract value from their datasets, by leveraging existing algorithms, and creating and hosting new models with ease.

For instance, a developer could create a simple, composable, and fully automated economic development report using predictive algorithms from Algorithmia.

Gartner is the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company.
