Big data vendor RedPoint Global gets its name from a sport-climbing term, CEO Dale Renner said in an email. "RedPoint is a free-climbing term that is used to describe an ascent on a previously attempted route that is accomplished without error -- in other words, flawless execution," he said in the email.
RedPoint Global was founded in 2006 by Renner, a former Accenture veteran who started the company's CRM practice. It's now focused on software that helps companies manage and analyze mountains of data.
