Company Name: Alpine Data Labs
The Lowdown: There's a lot of talk today about how businesses are struggling with "big data" and how to get value from the increasingly huge volumes of information.
Alpine Data Labs has developed the Alpine Miner in-database analytics tool with "modeling to scoring" capabilities that the company says offers a breakthrough in big data predictive analytics. AlpineMiner, according to Alpine Data Labs, is designed for business users as well as hardcore data analysts and is more cost-effective than other predictive analysis systems.
Founded in early 2010 and incubated inside Greenplum, the business intelligence and data warehouse software company EMC acquired last year, Alpine Data was spun off and recently raised $7.5 million in venture funding.
