SAN FRANCISCO AND NEW YORK – March 19, 2014 - Software analytics company New Relic today announced the arrival of Insights, a real-time analytics platform that collects, stores and presents valuable data directly from modern software, and transforms the data into insights about customers, applications and the business. Delivered as a cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering and using New Relic’s lightning-fast and custom-built Big Data database platform, New Relic Insights empowers application developers and business users alike to make ad hoc and iterative queries across trillions of events and metrics and get answers in seconds.
Traditionally, there hasn’t been a fast, easy or cost-effective way to collect, store and interact with real-time data to gain business or IT insights. With today’s fast-paced economy, businesses can no longer afford to wait hours or days for a static report that may not provide the data required for data-driven, software-powered businesses. Frequently, the data is out of date and ad-hoc queries take hours to complete, limiting what and how many questions decision makers can ask – making data-driven, iterative decision making impossible.
New Relic Insights is only one offering from New Relic within the much broader Software Analytics category. Every modern business is software-driven and interacts with its customers digitally whether via mobile or the web. As a result, software holds answers about your customers’ behaviors and actions, which reflect on the state of your business and your relationship with customers. There are five components that make up Software Analytics:
"New Relic Insights is like a data Swiss army knife, a tool you can use for a multitude of analytics needs and opportunities. For any modern publisher, analytics is omnipresent with millions of data points - think March Madness and World Cup 2014 just for starters. Bleacher Report sees New Relic Insights adding significant engagement opportunities with our sports fans around the globe." - Sam Parnell, CTO, Bleacher Report
"The New Relic API and the software analytics now available through New Relic Insights are allowing us to analyze and iterate feature changes to our website and donor experience in sophisticated A/B testing that wouldn't be available any other way with any other tool. Software Analytics is helping us save the lives of children in countries like Zambia and Uganda, all made possible by New Relic." - Joel Worrall, CTO, CURE
"New Relic Insights is a spotlight that rapidly uncovers major insights about our properties — and is an invaluable tool for both our tech and marketing teams. The custom dashboards and ability to add custom attributes allow us rapidly to ask better questions and quickly learn from those, so we can dig further and make better business decisions — both for the platforms as well as the user experiences they support. The monitor-test-get results cycle has been reduced from two weeks to daily (or even intra-day) — the speed with which you can build a query and get a response has created a near real-time intelligence capability. Finally, the instrument-launch-monitor cycle now fits in our agile development and marketing processes." - Paul Ryan, CTO, Yellow Pages Group, Canada
“I am so excited that New Relic Insights is now a reality, a completely new type of product that signals New Relic’s second act. It builds upon our ability to collect, store and make sense of billions of metrics and offers the ability to instantly query live production software, iterate on the fly and act upon the results. I truly think New Insights will transform the way businesses use data from their software to make better decisions.” – Lew Cirne, founder and CEO, New Relic
