Entagen Named a Gartner "Cool Vendor" in Life Sciences for 2013

NEWBURYPORT, MA--(Marketwired - May 6, 2013) - Entagen, a fast-growing software company providing Big Data analytics and collaboration solutions across the enterprise, announced today that the company has earned a spot on Gartner's prestigious list of Cool Vendors in Life Sciences for 2013 according to the Gartner report published May 2nd, 2013(1). Entagen was recognized for its TripleMap & Extera software platforms, which help life science & healthcare companies "Connect the Dots in Big Data."

TripleMap allows users to search and analyze data entities and their associations in Entagen's proprietary high-performance Extera technology. Extera aggregates structured and unstructured data and continuously scans both internal and external data sources to build a master data graph across the enterprise. Users explore and share this information visually by creating dynamic knowledge maps that capture associations between entities. TripleMap & Extera can be securely deployed within an organization's firewall or hosted in the cloud.

Gartner's Cool Vendors in Life Sciences, 2013 report is distinct for its requirement that candidacy is contingent solely upon nomination by analysts within the Gartner community. The ranking earmarks Entagen as one of an elite group of vendors reported on by Gartner since 2004. The Gartner report summary states, "Insight-driven performance improvement is on the minds of life science leaders; these Cool Vendor picks produce tools for aggregating and delivering value from data."

"We are honored to be included in Gartner's Cool Vendor list," said Christopher Bouton, CEO of Entagen. "We are in an exciting position at the intersection of Big Data, semantic technology and the life sciences / healthcare, and are proud to offer our client organizations a powerful solution to connect the dots in the enormous amounts of data they are handling."
