AtScale Achieves Leadership Position in GigaOm Sonar Report for Semantic Layers and Metric Stores

BOSTON — September 7, 2023 — AtScale, the leading provider of semantic layer solutions for modern business intelligence and data science teams, today announced that it has been positioned as the ‘leader’ in GigaOm’s Semantic Layers and Metric Stores Sonar Report. This distinguished recognition places AtScale at the forefront, surpassing industry rivals such as Microsoft, Google, and Oracle.

GigaOm’s Semantic Layers and Metric Stores Sonar is a new report providing a comprehensive overview of vendors in the semantic layer and metrics store domain, providing insights for IT decision-makers seeking to align the right solution with their distinct business needs.

The GigaOm report recognizes AtScale for its deep data sources and unparalleled client connectivity. AtScale is also recognized for its multi-persona approach to user interfaces and platform orientation, as well as its adept configuration options for aggregates. AtScale’s performance across various categories, including user interface, data source and client connectivity, security, access controls, and native API support, was consistently rated as ‘exceptional.’

According to the report’s author, Andrew Brust, “The return to semantic layers and metric stores represents at least a conceptual return to the OLAP methodology, even if not a return to OLAP technology. In hindsight, this shows that what the industry really needed was a technology change, not a methodology change.” 

AtScale’s semantic layer technology creates a foundation for building a scalable enterprise metrics store strategy. It establishes centralized metrics governance while empowering the democratization of data access and business intelligence across the enterprise, resulting in analysis-ready data being put directly into the hands of decision-makers. 

“I am thrilled that GigaOm has formally recognized the semantic layer as a critical component of the modern data stack,” said David Mariani, co-founder and CTO of AtScale. “AtScale was the first to recognize the importance of the semantic layer and the first to market with an enterprise-ready platform. Our position as the leader in the GigaOm Radar report validates our leadership position in this important new category.”
