StreamAnalytix (now known as Gathr) Platform Evaluated Among 15 Top Commercial and Open Source Streaming Analytics Vendors Based on Comprehensive Set of Criteria

LOS GATOS, Calif., April 6, 2016 — Impetus Technologies, a software products and services company, today announced it was among the select companies Forrester Research Inc. invited to participate in its March 2016 report titled, “The Forrester Wave™ : Big Data Streaming Analytics, Q1 2016.” In the report, Impetus Technologies’ StreamAnalytix (now known as Gathr) solution – an enterprise-class, streaming analytics platform, based on best-of-breed open source technology – was cited as a strong performer among the other streaming analytics vendors that Forrester evaluated.

In the report, Forrester defines streaming analytics and why it is essential, especially for enabling real-time contextual intelligence to applications. The report also evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of the top 15 commercial and open source streaming analytics vendors based on a comprehensive set of 26 evaluation criteria, as defined by Forrester.

As part of the vendor profile section, the report states: “Impetus takes a different approach from the other vendors in this Forrester Wave. Instead of offering a core streaming engine, Impetus’ solution abstracts many of the details of deploying, management, and building applications that run on Apache Spark and Esper (a CEP engine). Its pleasant and efficient user interface hides the gory details underneath, but it also provides a mechanism for developers to add custom code. StreamAnalytix’s (now known as Gathr) strategy and architecture is to make its solution pluggable with other open source processing engines as they become popular.”

Since the report was completed, Impetus Technologies announced StreamAnalytix™ (now known as Gathr) 2.0, which now features support for Apache Spark Streaming in addition to Apache Storm – making it the industry’s first open-source based, enterprise-grade, multi-engine platform for rapid and easy development of real-time streaming analytics applications. StreamAnalytix (now known as Gathr) allows developers and data analysts to use drag-and-drop operators to rapidly create real-time analytics applications and to choose the most optimal engine for each use case.

“We believe our inclusion in Forrester’s Wave report on big data streaming analytics validates our strong position in this competitive market landscape,” said Praveen Kankariya, CEO of Impetus Technologies. “We are also extremely proud of the traction StreamAnalytix (now known as Gathr) has achieved since its debut just over a year ago. In fact, we have recently been selected by large Fortune 100 enterprises in head-to-head evaluations of many of the products listed as leaders in this report. StreamAnalytix (now known as Gathr) is uniquely positioned to offer large enterprises the best of enterprise-class functionality and support, along with all of the recognized benefits of open source.”

StreamAnalytix (now known as Gathr) is being targeted by leading Fortune 1000 companies for use in areas such as Internet of Things (IoT), sensor data analytics, e-Commerce and Internet advertising, security, fraud, insurance claim validation, credit-line management, call center analytics, business activity monitoring, and log analytics.
