OmniSci Recognized for Data Analytics and Data Science Innovation with 2020 Data Breakthrough Award

Prestigious Awards Program Honors Outstanding Data Technology Products and Companies

SAN FRANCISCO, April 8, 2020 – OmniSci, the pioneer in accelerated analytics, today announced that its OmniSci 5.0 platform has been selected as the winner of the “Data Visualization Solution of the Year” award in the 2020 Data Breakthrough Awards. The awards are conducted by DataBreakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global data technology market today.


The OmniSci platform is the first technology on the market that can query and render tens of billions of rows of spatiotemporal data within milliseconds, making large complex data sets interactive, visual and operational. OmniSci 5.0 makes analytics more instant, powerful and effortless while featuring new data fusion and integrated data science capabilities.


“The tremendous value of data has now been proven and we are now firmly set on a new phase within the market in which the scalability and speed of legacy analytics tools are simply insufficient,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, Data Breakthrough.“OmniSci is “breaking through” the market by converging powerful analytics, data science and location intelligence at scale into a seamless workflow.OmniSci 5.0 is a game-changing data analytics and visualization innovation and we congratulate the entire OmniSci team on their well-deserved success and industry recognition.” 


The Data Breakthrough Awards is the premier awards program founded to recognize the data technology innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the world in a range of categories, including Data Analytics, Big Data,Business Intelligence, Data Storage and many more. The inaugural DataBreakthrough Award program attracted more than 1,200 nominations from across the globe.


“Our aim is to allow users to get answers to the biggest questions at the speed of curiosity, with visual exploration and data science workflows that easily extract the deepest possible insights,” said Todd Mostak, CEO,OmniSci. “We proudly partner with more than 4,000 users across the telecom, automotive, investment management, utilities, pharmaceuticals, national defense, logistics, insurance and oil and gas sectors. We are thrilled to receive this 2020 Data Breakthrough Award and look forward to continued success in our mission.”  


OmniSci 5.0 empowers users to easily add external data from partners and public data to existing datasets inOmniSci, providing analytical breadth and perspective. Its deep integration with the open source data science ecosystem allows OmniSci to offer users the ability to switch from interactive exploration of multi-billion row datasets to building and applying machine learning models seamlessly. This capability provides greater depth of insight with unmatched speed and agility.


Key features in the latest OmniSci platform include:

● The ability to import external public or partner datasets and visually join them in geospatial or time series charts.

● A single workflow to select a subset of data and then launch a notebook to explore the data further to build machine learning models.

● The ability to interactively build and analyze the behavior of cohorts in data (including people and moving vehicles such as ships, planes and cars).

● Support to allow external machine learning libraries to be integrated into query execution, both to train and apply machine learning models and consume the results.

● Significant improvement in performance for certain aggregate queries, as well as an improved architecture for resiliency and high availability.
