CIO Review Names IRI a “Most Promising Big Data Solution Provider”

2015 List Includes IRI for Consolidating Key Data Management Activities

Melbourne, Fla. (November 10, 2015) - Innovative Routines International (IRI), Inc., The CoSort Company, a leading data management and protection ISV, was named a top “Big Data Solution Provider" for 2015 by CIO Review. A panel of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts,  and CIO Review editors selected the top 100 vendors “based on merit.”

The big data phenomenon is one of the top things on the minds of CIOs and IT teams, as it continues to bring new challenges and technologies to address extreme processing and analytic workloads. According to CIO Review, “the key lies in identifying the most relevant investments” that align with the company’s goals for tackling big data. “CIOs must have the vision to see through vendor hype and zero in on the most sound approach.”

Through its flagship CoSort package, IRI tackled big data long before it became a buzzword. Now its ‘total data management’ platform “Voracity” delivers the performance and flexibility companies need to solve data volume, variety, velocity, and veracity problems. "The ability to move, munge, and mask structured, semi- and unstructured data supports insights and complies with privacy laws," observed IRI Sales Director Lisa Mangino.

Another challenge facing CIOs is the sheer number of offerings addressing different problems (or parts of problems). The result is tools that do not interact, and force multiple buying cycles, learning curves, and support issues. "What the market really needs, and IRI is now delivering in Voracity, is one platform seamlessly integrating all essential data management activities,” Mangino noted. "Providing data discovery, integration, migration, governance, analytics and curation in Eclipse UI also future-proofs enterprises concerned about data, business, and technological changes,” she added.
