Leading Big Data platform among promising European tech ventures nominated for award
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (April 14, 2015) – Xplenty, the big data integration platform that makes it easy to process more data more quickly, today announced it has been selected as a Finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 Europe award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the European business region.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across Europe. The nominees are evaluated on 20 main quantitative and qualitative criterion: they include disruptive impact, market footprint, proof of concept, financial performance, technology innovation, social value, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as a finalist for this prominent award,” says Yaniv Mor, CEO and Co-Founder of Xplenty. “Our platform streamlines every aspect of data integration, reducing time spent and allowing businesses to focus on insight over preparation. The nomination speaks volumes to how effectively our technology makes raw Big Data ‘analytics-ready’ for businesses seeking insight from their data.”
Finalists for the 2015 edition of the Red Herring 100 Europe award are selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health. During the months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the telecommunications, security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, biotech, mobile and other industries completed their submissions to qualify for the award.
"This year was rewarding, beyond all expectations," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "There are many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products in Europe. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists. Xplenty shows great promise and therefore deserves to be among the Finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Europe. We know that the 2015 crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact."
The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of April 15 at the event.
