ExtraHop Named Best Big Data Analytics Solution of 2016

Leader in Wire Data Analytics Takes Top Honors in the European IT and Software Excellence Awards
April 18, 2016

SEATTLE, WA - April 18, 2016 – ExtraHop, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT intelligence and business operations, today announced that it has been honored as the top Big Data, IoT or Analytics Solution of 2016 by the European IT & Software Excellence Awards. The ExtraHop platform was selected from among more than 400 entries from over 31 countries.

"Big Data is only valuable insofar as it delivers actionable insight. At ExtraHop, we've built a platform that takes an incredibly rich source of data – the network – and transforms it into wire data to deliver key performance insights and align IT and business workflows," said Colin Pittham, Vice President of Sales for EMEA at ExtraHop. "We are particularly honored to have received this award because it recognizes not only our innovative approach but our commitment to helping our global customers achieve more efficient and profitable business outcomes."

The ExtraHop stream analytics platform goes far beyond traditional performance management tools, delivering the real-time insight that puts IT teams back in control of even the most critical and demanding of environments. With ExtraHop, teams across the IT organization – from network and applications, to DevOps and cloud, to security – have the visibility they need to fix, optimize, and transform their operations and align IT priorities and workflows with core business goals. The ExtraHop stream analytics platform is used by some of the UK's top organizations, including bet365, Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, and Eduserv, and Sportingbet.

With so many high-scoring entries, choosing outright winners in each category was particularly hard this year, says judges' panel chair John Garratt, editor of IT Europa. "It is also fascinating to see how the entries reflect the changes in the industry; previous years have seen concentrations of cloud and then SaaS solutions; this year we have had many entries showing solutions based on data and its management and analysis. This shows how responsive the industry is, particularly among the software developers and ISVs who are so determined to deliver results for their customers. The awards show that there is a real case for considering IT as a success and encouraging even more investment in what it can offer."

The European IT & Software Excellence Awards are the only pan-European awards that recognize the crucial role that ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators play in the delivery of real-world solutions. Entries were submitted by the ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators themselves describing the solution provided. Each entry had to be supported by an endorsement by the client.
