Vanguard Software listed in Gartner’s 2014 Who’s Who in Advanced Analytics as part of the “next frontier of opportunity” in data-driven insights and decisions.
Like Vanguard, Gartner recognizes that traditional Business Intelligence (BI) tools can only measure the past and lack the analytic capabilities to model the future. They report an increasing number of organizations are turning to advanced analytics to support their decision making.
“[A]dvanced analytics has emerged as the next frontier of opportunity. Organizations that want to become more analytically mature and achieve competitive advantage must expand their use of analytics to predictive and prescriptive techniques,” the report states.
“We are thrilled to receive this recognition from such an esteemed institution,” says Rob Suggs, CEO of Vanguard Software. “We have long felt that the real power of analytics isn’t in data discovery, but in using more sophisticated techniques that can model uncertainties. Our advanced analytic products help businesses get a clear picture of what’s likely to happen, not what’s already happened.”
Two of Vanguard’s products were singled out for recognition: Vanguard Forecast Server and Vanguard System. Forecast Server provides collaborative, automated forecasting using cutting edge techniques. It makes advanced analytics accessible to the business user. Vanguard System, a modeling platform, provides a large breadth of power and possibility to the expert modeler.

Vanguard specializes in enterprise forecasting software that integrates with existing data systems and business processes.
