WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Prognoz, a global provider of business analytics solutions, today announced the availability of Prognoz Data Portal, a cloud-based tool for monitoring and analyzing more than 150 million socioeconomic development indicators from over 200 national and international data sources. Leveraging Prognoz Data Portal, organizations can now quickly and easily sift through vast amounts of socioeconomic data – from key macro indicators to granular industry-specific statistics – as well as hundreds of other indicators to help inform strategic business decisions.
“Prognoz has a long history in econometrics and advanced analytics. We recognize that the combined wealth of socioeconomic data available in the market could help our customers with strategic initiatives and decision making, if only they had easy access to it”
Built on the Prognoz Business Intelligence Platform, Prognoz Data Portal is ideal for experts and analysts in business and the public sector who focus on marketing research, business development, product development and business strategy. The solution offers a wide range of reliable and current macroeconomic indicators from a variety of sources, including national statistical services, international organizations, and trade associations. International Monetary Fund, World Bank, World Economic Forum, World Health Organization, Statistical Office of the European Communities and the U.S. Department of Agriculture are among the 200 sources of rich datasets available in Data Portal.
“Prognoz has a long history in econometrics and advanced analytics. We recognize that the combined wealth of socioeconomic data available in the market could help our customers with strategic initiatives and decision making, if only they had easy access to it,” said Dmitriy Andrianov, founder and CEO at Prognoz. “Prognoz Data Portal solves the problem of disparate data sources and eliminates the complexity of big data, so organizations can find just the right information they are seeking.”
“As business analytics continues to become more and more integral to how organizations make decisions, it is a natural progression for companies to seek out vendors that provide value-added content,” said Dan Vesset, program vice president, business analytics and big data at IDC. “By making data more easily consumable, vendors enable companies to be more strategic and more agile in a business climate that increasingly demands instant actions and reactions.”
Rather than sorting through lists of catalogues, Prognoz Data Portal users have a single source to access and analyze data with an easy-to-use Prognoz search engine — natively integrated within the solution — and search results can be filtered and sorted based on user-supplied criteria. In addition, time-series analysis capabilities from the Prognoz Platform enable Data Portal users to analyze dynamic changes in indicators found over time using advanced statistical methods.
Unlike many other data provider offerings, queries in Prognoz can be saved, exported to different popular formats such as HTML, XLS, PDF, RTF or can be used to create dashboards. As an added benefit, Data Portal provides users with flexibility to manipulate and format reports through a broad array of business graphics, with more than 30 types of charts, tables and 3D maps available.
