This week we were proud to be named to Information Management’s list of “40 Vendors We’re Watching.” Jim Ericson, Information Management editor, notes the tremendous groundswell in new technologies shaping the way businesses and individuals interact and use the data in their lives. Have a look at the list: http://bit.ly/S9Bjzc
It’s a smart crowd and Actian is proud to be recognized for our record-breaking, and now “award winning” Vectorwise analytic database. And it gets even better as our state-of-the-art Action Apps were also recognized as an innovative statement of our future direction.
Jim Ericson of IM’s synopsis, “is banking on mainstream demand bleeding into the business with a new strategy where users build Action Apps consumer style interfaces that trigger business rules to automate productivity. Pick an activity, set a threshold and trigger an action.”
They’re right – we at Actian know that in order for businesses to manage big data rather than the other way around, it is going to take disruptive and exceptional new technologies like the Vectorwise high-performance analytic database and Action Apps.

Also, you are cordially invited to participate in the future of information management by downloading and trying out our first Action App–the first of many more to come. You can find it in the iTunes store http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/action-apps/id550464436?mt=8 Take it for a spin and see for yourself how your business can benefit from big data analytics automatically translated into actions on your mobile device.
Finally, I also wanted to note with great pleasure that Actian’s partners, Talend, Tableau, and Yellowfin were also named to the ranks of IM’s List of 40 to Watch. It’s nice to be in good company; it also high-lights how critical partnering is to being successful in today’s economy.
Thanks again to the folks at Information Management for keeping an eye on us. Here’s to the exciting future of information management in the 21st century.
