Symphony Analytics, a global provider of big data analytics solutions and services and a division of Symphony Teleca Corporation, today announced that it has partnered with Revolution Analytics, the leading provider of software and services based on the open source R project for statistical computing. Together the companies will co-market solutions built upon Revolution R Enterprise, leveraging Revolution Analytics' expertise in statistical computing solutions, and Symphony Teleca's expertise operationalizing predictive analytics for key vertical markets, such as retail, healthcare, financial services and other markets.
Launched as a separate division within Symphony Teleca earlier this year to consolidate analytics solutions into a single brand, Symphony Analytics combines technology and industry expertise in big data management, predictive analytics, social media analytics and visualization to provide solutions that help organizations rapidly and effectively leverage big data to make more informed business decisions.
"Enterprises today are hoping to take their analytics capabilities to a new level through predictive modeling that helps uncover hidden patterns and fresh insights from big data," said Greg Fuller, Vice President, Partners & Channels, Revolution Analytics.

"Our predictive analytics solutions meet the growing market demand for new operationalized solutions that enable real-time and predictive analytics, which are integrated directly into a company's business processes. Together with Revolution Analytics we're able to bring about more affordable solutions that are enabling a new class of big data specialists to analyze data and unlock unprecedented business value."
Based on Revolution R Enterprise, Symphony Analytics has already developed solutions for a number of vertical markets. Some of these solutions are leveraging the unique combination of Revolution Analytics' Revolution R Enterprise platform with Symphony Analytics' powerful SymphonyRPM structured analysis and planning platform. For example, in healthcare, the company has developed a solution that allows hospitals to analyze and predict the likelihood of a patient being readmitted after treatment. In retail, R-based solutions are enabling real-time data analytics with solutions that allow marketers and advertisers to conduct dynamic mobile marketing campaigns using NFC tags activated by consumers' own mobile phones, so that consumer brands and retailers can directly engage with them and drive a new level of brand loyalty and trust.
