MicroStrategy honors Big Data Analytics database provider at MicroStrategy Symposium in London

London, UK, November 7, 2011 — In-memory analytics pioneer Kognitio has won the 2011 MicroStrategy UK ‘Business Partner of the Year’ award following its close working relationship and technical alliance partnership with MicroStrategy. The award was presented at the MicroStrategy UK Symposium in London.

Throughout the course of 2011, a large number of organizations have deployed Kognitio’s in-memory analytic database,WX2, as the underlying engine to their MicroStrategy front-end BI platform in order to run Big Data analytics and gain actionable insights from their large and complex data volumes. Customers that have chosen to run MicroStrategy and Kognitio both as on-premise solutions and on-demand in the Cloud include online gaming sites, price comparison companies, retailers, telecom operators and the UK’s postal service.

“We congratulate Kognitio for winning MicroStrategy’s UK Business Partner of the Year award,” said Paul Devlin, UK Country Manager, MicroStrategy. “The combination of MicroStrategy and Kognitio together make a powerful solution for companies seeking scalability and speed with their BI deployment.”

“We’re extremely honored to receive this award from MicroStrategy,” explains Steve Millard, Chief Operating Officer at Kognitio. “Over the past 12 months we have seen how MicroStrategy’s flexible reporting platform and Kognitio’s fast and scalable analytical database are well-suited for enterprises with demanding, Big Data, BI and analytical requirements, whether it is in the Cloud, on mobile devices or using social data.”

The award reflects the successful relationship between the two firms and the seamless integration between MicroStrategy’s intuitive reporting capabilities and WX2 to help business people create and refine their own web- or mobile-based reports on query results without IT involvement. Kognitio’s WX2 analytic database, now in its seventh generation, uses in-memory processing and unprecedented query speeds to obtain results in a fraction of the time and cost of competing products. MicroStrategy offers a full-featured BI platform that makes understanding data faster, easier and more user-friendly. Together, the technologies enable businesses to conduct complex analysis on ever increasing data volumes to solve time-sensitive problems that were previously unachievable.
