“We needed to publish the research behind this initiative with a strategy that supported our goal of disrupting the Big Data analytics industry,” notes Phala Data CEO and Founder June Manley.  “Once again, Cyclone has solidified the benefits of our partnership and the value they bring to our brand awareness, marketing, and sales enablement endeavors.  Their approach to this thought leadership and content marketing initiative is exceeding our expectations and we look forward to the results as this campaign unfolds.”

This research initiative and resulting tool represent the strategic challenges addressed by Phala Data’s solutions. The MiRi™ Analytic Platform helps enterprise leadership make better, faster, more informed decisions using actionable insight from a single source of truth.

The first generation of the CEO Insight Readiness Index examines enterprise leadership:

  • Confidence in the value and accuracy of Marketing, Sales, and Finance data;
  • Estimation of the time involved in gaining access to that data; and
  • Appraisal of the effort involved in analyzing that data.

“The CEO Insight Readiness Index opens the door to improved C-suite understanding of how, why, and where enterprise strategy falls short,” stated Phala Data VP of Corporate and Business Development Ellen Hassett Cahill. “It also sheds light on how business intelligence solutions are evolving into true best-practice operational platforms.”

Upon evaluating the tool, Raizlabs President Jason Petralia remarked, “The CEO Insight Readiness Index exemplifies Phala Data’s leading role in enterprise solution innovation. Such powerful decision-awareness tools are a business requirement in this day and age."
