Atlanta, GA, February 9, 2017AnswerRocket, the pioneer in search-powered analytics for business users, today announced its participation in the Innovative BI in Action session at Gartner’s Data & Analytics Summit 2017.

The popular session once again helps kick off Gartner’s flagship conference for analytics leaders and business executives. Innovative BI in Action is designed to educate attendees on five emerging trends found within Gartner’s July 2016 Hype Cycle for Business Intelligence and Analytics.

Session: Innovative BI in Action
Date: Sunday, March 5, 2017
Time: 3:30-5:30 pm

Rita Sallam, Research VP of Gartner’s Business Analytics and Data Science team, will facilitate the session.

As Sallam and her fellow analysts stated in their February 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics: “Search-based data discovery enabled by natural-language query will extend the reach of analytics to more users. As BI and analytics platforms increasingly support natural language query, allowing nontechnical users to analyze data by asking questions in a conversational way, new users are more likely to engage with and leverage analytics.”

The report continues: “Advancements in the underlying search capabilities required for effective end-user-driven natural-language query against multi-structured data will improve the usability and credibility of this emerging product feature.”

Pete Reilly, AnswerRocket SVP of Sales and Marketing, will demonstrate AnswerRocket’s breakthroughs with search-based data discovery.

“We are honored to participate in the Innovative BI in Action session,” said Reilly. “We are at the front of a new cycle in innovation that will automate much of the manual processes found within traditional analytics and visualization tools. This innovation will deliver a competitive advantage to companies that embrace it, allowing them to become significantly more data driven from top to bottom.”

The Data & Analytics Summit will be held March 5-9, 2017, in Grapevine, TX.
