ThoughtSpot Cloud Wins 2021 BIG Innovation Award

ThoughtSpot recognized for its significant contribution to helping organizations unlock new value from their data 

SUNNYVALE, CA — January 12, 2021 — ThoughtSpot, the leader in search and AI-driven analytics, today announced it has been named a winner in the 2021 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group. The annual business awards program recognized ThoughtSpot as an organization bringing critical innovation to the world of data and empowering employees of all technical backgrounds to leverage data. In particular, the launch of ThoughtSpot Cloud, the first SaaS offering for search and AI-driven analytics, was noted as a key development in the last year. 

The explosion of data is reshaping every industry, creating new opportunities to innovate they way they engage with customers, drive efficient operations, and deliver revenue. The rise of the cloud and the pandemic have turned these opportunities into a requirement. It’s critical organizations have a turnkey solution that works hand-in-hand with cloud data warehouses to enable all employees, from frontline workers to C-suite executives, with insights at the most granular level from their entire cloud. 

Last year ThoughtSpot unveiled  a fully-managed SaaS solution, ThoughtSpot Cloud, that provides business users with the flexibility to access, search and glean instant insights from all their cloud data, then turn these insights into action that improve performance and personalize customer experiences. This also frees analytics teams from the routine work of building and tweaking endless reports, giving them the time to partner more deeply with the business and focus on more strategic data work such as predictive analytics and data engineering. 

“More than ever, the global society relies on innovation to help progress humanity and make our lives more productive, healthy and comfortable,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring ThoughtSpot as they are one of the organizations leading this charge and helping humanity progress.”

Organizations from across the globe submitted their recent innovations for consideration in the BIG Innovation Awards. Nominations were then judged by a select group of business leaders and executives who volunteer their time and expertise to score submissions. 

“The most successful organizations today recognize the incredible potential their cloud data represents. Whether they’re creating new products and services, improving the experience for their customers, or streamlining operations, they know their data holds the key to success. Too often, however, they’ve been held back from the same insights bottlenecks that plagued their on premises world,” said Sumeet Arora, Chief Development Officer, ThoughtSpot. “The launch of ThoughtSpot Cloud is a massive step forward in bringing search and AI-driven analytics to every employee, and in doing so, helping organizations tap the true potential of their investments in the cloud. I’m incredibly thankful to our customers, whose bravery in challenging the status quo and embracing innovation when it comes to data has been inspiring. Without you, we would not have been recognized for this achievement.”
