NEW YORK -- Signals Group, a data analytics company that delivers intelligence and insights to Fortune 500 companies to support product development and growth, today announced that is has been named a Cool Vendor in the "Cool Vendors in R&D for Manufacturers, 2016 report by Michael Shanler at Gartner, Inc.
The report recognizes vendors that have technology platforms and business models that can add value to R&D activities.
"Although there are thousands of solutions that target various industries' R&D groups, this year's class shows promise with facilitating the digitalization of R&D. This builds upon the 2015 Cool Vendors report, but it has a deeper focus into building a digital-R&D-enabled organization, where the real and digital worlds converge. Digital R&D leverages the Internet of Things (IoT) and enables new business models where people, business systems, and things are viewed as increasingly equal entities making active and passive transactions and contributions to results."
"We believe being listed as a 'Cool Vendor' by Gartner is validation that executives need a new source for commercial insights that grants access to more diverse data in real-time to keep pace with the speed of business today," said Gil Sadeh, co-founder and CEO of Signals Group. "What made companies great won't be enough to keep them on top. Decision-makers crave insights different from what they get with traditional market research and consulting, on one hand, and shows tangible value compared to the large investment required of many big data projects."
Signals has the ability to support corporate decision-making by turning external 'big data' into actionable insights for strategic commercial decisions. This is powered by an intelligence software platform that Signals developed to quickly transform multiple external data and unstructured data sources covering consumers, markets, and technologies into tangible, constantly updated insights on how to grow products and brands.
