Gartner Names Digital Reasoning a “Cool Vendor” in Smart Machines

Leading analyst firm recognizes company for being innovative, impactful and intriguing

NASHVILLE, Tenn. April 16, 2014 – Digital Reasoning, a leader in cognitive computing, today announced it has been included in the Cool Vendors in Smart Machines, 2014 report by leading analyst firm, Gartner.

“Smart machines surprise us by doing what we thought machines couldn’t do, and similarly, some encroach on what people do. They extend us and enhance our abilities (by watching what we do, predicting our needs and acting on our behalf). They protect and promote us by helping manage the incoming tidal information floods and point out to us content and relationships we should be mining” according to the Gartner report.

Digital Reasoning’s machine learning platform Synthesys® rapidly analyzes large volumes of electronic communications such as emails, chat, voice and social media – revealing relationships and facts about people, places and things that expose potentially critical security, governance, risk and compliance issues. Whether it’s a financial firm looking to reveal fraudulent behavior or regulators focused on uncovering previously unknown criminal networks and market manipulation, Digital Reasoning helps organizations become more proactive in using intelligence to protect their reputations, assets and people.

“We are honored to be recognized in Gartner’s Cool Vendor Report,” said Tim Estes, CEO and founder of Digital Reasoning. “Some day all software will learn, and that day is nearly upon us. The age of cognitive computing stands to amplify, augment, and multiply productivity in ways that would have been unimaginable just a few years ago. Today we are beginning to transform the way banks are monitoring reputation and conduct risks in a Big Data world.”
