We’re thrilled – Impetus’ all-in-one data pipeline platform, Gathr (formerly known as StreamAnalytix) has been named as a contender by Forrester in its latest report, The Forrester Wave™: Streaming Analytics Q2, 2021. Gathr is among the 14 most significant streaming analytics providers to be featured.

Describing Gathr, the report states, “Gathr is an end-to-end, unified data platform that handles ingestion, integration/ETL (extract, transform, load), streaming analytics, and machine learning. Gathr offers strengths in usability, data connectors, tools, and extensibility. Enterprises currently using or wishing to use Apache Spark for streaming analytics should strongly consider Gathr because it adds tooling and enterprise features that are starkly missing from the open source platform.”

The Forrester Wave™ report is perhaps the most reputable and comprehensively evaluated market insight report focused on streaming analytics today, making it even more exciting. The report recommends evaluating Gathr to enterprises that need a single visual platform for leveraging popular open source, big data platforms for streaming ETL and advanced analytics. It validates our strong position as a unified, cloud-native, no-code data pipeline platform that meets enterprises’ end-to-end data integration and engineering needs.
