WHY:

In the last year, companies have aggregated unprecedented amounts of data. But now there is much discussion about how to use this data in the most efficient way; large volumes of data are useless without organization and context, and companies need sophisticated analytics to interpret and prioritize the right data that will drive better business decisions.

FirstRain is creating an area of big data analytics that is largely new to the customer intelligence landscape: getting highly personalized, relevant and timely information to sales and marketing teams. Each user’s experience is based on how they sell and go-to-market, and the products they are selling, so they can quickly understand the relevant developments in their customers’ business to maximize revenue opportunities. FirstRain’s cloud-based solutions, Customer Insights and Market Insights, leverage patented algorithms to extract critical developments and visualizations from the business web and social media. These actionable insights are seamlessly delivered to each individual, and their enterprise teams, within the social and mobile applications they use every day. FirstRain’s software powers Fortune 1000 companies such as Cisco, GE Capital and Flextronics.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure.
