Analytica was born to grant wishes. Spreadsheet Wizards and Data Scientists alike rejoice in exploring document data without tedious programming. "I wish I could aggregate... I wish I could join... could turn this document inside out... could spend more time with the data, and less time figuring out how to process it... I wish... I wish..." An intuitive, declarative transformation language invites any kind of analyst to turn the woes of document data analysis into problems of dark days past. A simple, familiar query language empowers analysts to spend more time exploring their data rather than spending time figuring how to build a data processing infrastructure to make their document data accessible to their tools. Data Scientists can play with their data on their terms via REST, and Spreadsheet Wizards can interact with document data in their native Excel environment via an Excel plug-in.
Founded in 2011 by alumni of 10gen, Oracle, Business Objects, and Greenplum, Analytica seeks to provide the missing collaborative analytic tools that are absent from most common document database systems. Currently in private beta, Analytica is working with several customers proving out the solution. Visit us at http://www.analytica.com
