I am proud to announce that timbr.ai has been named by Gartner a 2021 Cool Vendor for Data Management*.
timbr’s goal is to organize and democratize access to data, empowering users for the fastest, most agile delivery of advanced analytics across multiple and varied data sources, without need of special skills or even knowing where or how the data is stored.
Its semantic and graph driven features enable organizations to capitalize on the business value of distributed data, overcoming the complexity of integrating separate data sources and providing them with a common business meaning so users can easily find, understand and access data.
The platform delivers key capabilities that enable the enterprise data fabric: best in class and convenient data mapping and access, virtualization, exploration of data as a connected graph of relationships, semantic cataloging, governance and security.
Being named a Gartner Cool Vendor is a recognition of our technological innovation and the business impact of timbr. A recent conversation with one of our customers illustrates timbr’s impact:
“Our project was planned for completion in a year, on a $1M budget. With timbr, we completed it in just two months at a cost of about $100K. I consider data discovery and data agility as the two best features of timbr. It usually takes us 3 months to do data discovery and deliver the data to the business users, with timbr we managed to do it in just 2 days”.
According to Gartner, what makes timbr COOL?
“timbr provides a graph-style structure for integrated data, based on ontology modeling and semantic reasoning in SQL over diverse data sources, including data lakes and data warehouses. Capitalizing on demands for new paradigms for knowledge representation and machine learning support of data consumption, timbr sets out to alleviate difficulties in integration and data management to bridge the gap between conventional SQL-fluent databases and relationship-rich smart knowledge graphs. This enables querying data from abstracted views, using SQL code that is significantly less complex than the SQL required to query the same data via a relational model. The combination of knowledge graph and data virtualization capabilities equips data consumers to explore an extensive range of organizational data represented as a single connected graph.”
timbr enables the virtual transformation of existing databases into semantic knowledge graphs with inference, inheritance, transitivity and graph capabilities. No need of adding new/separate databases, no need of moving/transforming data and no need of acquiring new skills.
Organizations benefit from automated analytical workflows while overall investment, implementation time-to-ROI, maintenance costs and cost-per-answer of analytic queries are dramatically reduced.
That’s what makes our technology COOL.
