In the report covering leading vendors that meet the criteria of modern BI and analytics platforms that drive the vast majority of new net purchases today, Gartner notes a market shift from IT-led to agile business-led analytics that is now mainstream, which is well aligned with ClearStory Data's capabilities.

ClearStory's platform uses fast, Spark-based processing to speed analysis of large data volumes. Its modern, BI platform is an ideal choice for business users who need to combine, blend and harmonize and explore multiple and varied data sources, including personal, cloud, streaming and syndicated data. ClearStory has several patents for its innovation in automated, data prep via Data Inference and automated blending of data via Intelligence Data Harmonization™ which enables fast holistic insights at scale.

In its latest 2017 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms, Gartner states that, "Modern BI and analytics platforms are characterized by easy-to-use tools that support a full range of analytic workflow capabilities and do not require significant involvement from IT in order to pre-define data models upfront as a prerequisite to analysis (including at enterprise-scale deployment)." ClearStory Data's solution specifically removes all hard data tasks by automating data prep, data blending, data discovery and speeding insights via narrated visual StoryBoards.
