Founded in 2006, Guavus has always been at the forefront of big data analytics innovation. We fundamentally believe that in order for businesses to become truly data-driven enterprises there needs to be a new model for analyzing the massive petabytes of data that are being generated on networks and through sensors and devices. A new data fabric that correlates and analyzes the data as it hits the network. By enabling enterprises to analyze data the instant it’s captured, Guavus gives businesses the unique ability to be decisive in today’s data-driven world.
No more gathering then storing data prior to analyze, no more relying on incomplete reports, no more time spent waiting for a consultant’s opinion. The Guavus Reflex® operational intelligence platform enables a new generation of analytics applications that have data science built in – applications that enable enterprises to gain a competitive edge by helping them put all their data to work to uncover new insights and make better quality and timely decisions.
