PredictHQ named Gartner Cool Vendor in 'Data for AI and ML'

Demand intelligence company, PredictHQ, has announced it’s been recognised as a Cool Vendor for "Data for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning"

PredictHQ’s recognition as a 2021 Cool Vendor featured in the "Data for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning" Gartner Cool Vendors report by Afraz Jaffri, Svetlana Sicular, Chirag Dekate, Anthony Mullen, and Arun Chandrasekaran.

The report stated: "By 2025, 70% of organisations will be compelled to shift their focus from big to small and wide data, providing more context for analytics and making AI less data hungry."

For its work helping businesses to anticipate and prepare for fluctuations caused by real-world events, PredictHQ has been recognised by Gartner.

"Building strategies on last years' data is meaningless at the moment. As we near the end of yet another year of unpredictable events –– from lockdowns, severe weather events, to attended events roaring back to life –– the ever-evolving context around how these events will impact businesses remains a huge challenge," said Campbell Brown, CEO at PredictHQ. 

"We believe that this Gartner Cool Vendor recognition is an important validation of what we're seeing in the market -- the need for forecast-grade external intelligence to accurately build forecasting and planning models that drive profitability," he added.
