Emerging Vendors 2012: Software Vendors


Alpine Data Labs

San Mateo, Calif.

CEO: Tom Ryan

Extracting value from big data can be a huge pain point for many companies. 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. Alpine Miner, 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.
