Zoomdata Launches Beta, Bringing Real-Time Data Visualization to the iPad

Tablet-Native Data Visualization System Now Available for Download From Apple App Store

SANTA CLARA, CA and RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - Feb 26, 2013) - O'Reilly Strata Conference -- Big Data Visualization startup Zoomdata today announced the beta release of the Zoomdata application, with a tablet version immediately available for download at the iPad App Store. Zoomdata makes it easy for data administrators to quickly connect its stream-processing engine to a wide variety of real-time data feeds and historical data sources. Once connected, a real time data feed is instantly available, allowing users to visualize and analyze trends within its most critical data, whether it arises from social networks, IT operations, trading data, transactional systems, or virtually any enterprise or cloud-based application.

Any iPad user can now download Zoomdata from the App Store to explore Zoomdata's unique tactile tablet visualizations of the real time Twitter stream, as well as sample sales data that showcase the app's ability to isolate and illuminate the most meaningful trends. To integrate with an organization's actual enterprise data, administrators and power users can download the Zoomdata Server from Zoomdata's website, including various data source connectors and install files for virtual and Linux servers. In addition to using Zoomdata's standard set of visualizations, users have the option of configuring their own D3.JS visuals. 

"We're empowering every person in a role that cares about data with the first visualization tool designed for the tablet that can keep up with them," said Justin Langseth, Founder and CEO. "The pinch/swipe/zoom capabilities make it intuitive and tactile -- even fun to use. We have a hard time prying the tablet away from people during demos. We're seeing major brands moving quickly to get their hands on it."

One such company is SapientNitro, a global business, marketing, and technology services company. Its analysts will be using Zoomdata to track real-time activity in social networks around a major consumer packaged goods brand. Zoomdata's visualizations help the analysts prioritize conversation strands based upon the number of participants. It also gives them an easy way to securely save, share, and collaborate on visualizations.

"The world's most discussed brands swim in a torrent of social data. Growing these brands and their fans increasingly depends on separating the signal from the noise, sifting through the chatter and zeroing in on patterns in conversation, identifying opportunity as it emerges," said Nathaniel Perez, Global Head of Social Experience at SapientNitro. "Zoomdata can now provide us with a powerful way to visualize trends and key conversations in real time, prioritize responses through data processing, and even uncover insights that allow us to define new engagement segments."

The beta launch announcement kicks off a busy week for Zoomdata that also includes an appearance at the O'Reilly Strata Conference, taking place from February 26th through the 28th at the Santa Clara Convention Center. In addition to exhibiting in Booth P17, Zoomdata will take the stage in Ballroom AB at 10:40AM on Thursday, February 28th to discuss how Zoomdata performs stream processing and visualization on mobile devices in real-time based on customer interaction data.

Zoomdata's management team comprises executives with a clear track record of success within and passion for the Big Data and startup communities. It is led by founder and CEO Justin Langseth, who brings over 20 years of big data experience gathered founding both Clarabridge and Claraview, the latter of which was acquired by Teradata, and -- a former subsidiary of MicroStrategy. Zoomdata's Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Russ Cosentino has more than 20 years of IT experience, much of it with startup companies like Clarabridge and Brainbench. Zoomdata's Vice President of Strategy and Business Development Chris McGill was CEO and founder of, acquired in 2011 by UberMedia, and is the former General Manager of Yahoo! News and Information. 

"This level of data visualization in real-time is flat-out disruptive to the market," added McGill. "We think companies shouldn't have to wait for data to harden in databases to gain insight -- they need to act before the chance for advantage passes. The speed of our success is a clear signal that companies agree."
