Rokitt Astra named a 2017 “Cool Vendor” in data management by Gartner

Vendors selected for the “Cool Vendors” report are innovative, impactful and intriguing

Io-Tahoe LLC today announced that its Rokitt Astra technology has been selected by Gartner as a “Cool Vendor” in data management. Gartner’s Cool Vendors in Data Management, 2017 report identifies four vendors that focus on solving the “efficient access to data” problem and have embraced different approaches to connecting and collecting data.

“Digital business is driving innovation in data management through effective access to and processing of data. Unified data access, multimodel DBMS approaches, metadata management techniques and real-time data integration top the list of innovations for CIOs and data and analytics leaders,” said Ehtisham Zaidi, senior research analyst at Gartner, Roxane Edjlali, research director at Gartner, Ted Friedman, research vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner, Mark A. Beyer, research vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner, Adam M. Ronthal, research director at Gartner, Guido De Simoni, research director at Gartner, Merv Adrian, lead analyst at Gartner and Svetlana Sicular, analyst at Gartner. “CIOs and data and analytics leaders, including CDOs, with responsibility for modernizing information infrastructure should identify solutions that explicitly separate the storage of data and the processing of that data; these can streamline data access challenges, provide flexibility and optimize costs.”
