Online PR News – 09-November-2015 – Konstanz, Germany – combit received not just one but two awards as part of the independent Big Data Vendor Benchmark Study 2016 conducted by the Experton Group. The software vendor from Konstanz made waves in the field of data aggregation, earning the title of "Big Data Leader Germany". According to the study, leaders are companies that "have a highly attractive product and service offering and a very strong market and competitive po-sition. […] They can be regarded as opinion leaders, providing strategic impulses to the mar-ket. combit achieved a leader position, due to the multiple data formats that can be proces-sed."

Furthermore, combit received the title of "Big Data Rising Star Germany" in the Visualizati-on/Dashboard category. Rising Stars are companies which "have [...] made a remarkable entry into the market [...], or provide a highly attractive technology offering; therefore they can be expected to reach the leader quadrant within the next 6 to 12 months." In this respect, the study focused particularly on the visualization options from a large number of different data sources. "The company's strengths within this category include the capability to visualize data from multiple sources and to distribute information to a larger group of involved users, as opposed to traditional BI/BA solutions." The Rising Star award is particularly notable, as the title was only awarded 6 times among the 100 competitors assessed.

"We are extremely pleased at the results of such a renowned study and feel that this is a tes-tament to the quality of our work. During the development of our products, we have always focused on our customers' needs and rapidly realize their requests. This is visible in every single new version of our award-winning reporting tool combit List & Label as well as our new BI solution combit Report Server", explained a proud Alexander Horak, Head of Development combit Report Server.

In addition to the outstanding results in the categories Data Aggregation and Visualizati-on/Dashboard, combit was also assessed in the Analytics category, where it was deemed to be one of the promising "Product Challengers". The Big Data Vendor Benchmark 2016 study was carried out for the third time this year, after previous studies in 2014 and 2015.
