New Relic Announces General Availability of Real-Time Analytics Platform New Relic Insights

New Cloud-Based Offering in Use by Thousands of Organizations, Enables Them to Easily and Quickly Answer Important Business Questions; Now Also Available via Mobile App for iPhone

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/14 -- Software analytics company New Relic today announced the general availability of New Relic Insights, a real-time analytics platform that collects, stores and presents valuable data directly from organizations' software, and transforms the data into insights about their customers, applications and the business. Delivered as a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering built atop New Relic's custom-built Big Data database platform, New Relic Insights empowers application developers, IT operations and business users alike to make ad hoc and iterative queries across trillions of data points and metrics and get answers in milliseconds. In addition, New Relic is offering a new companion iOS mobile app to give customers continuous access to data insights on the go.

Since its release as a public beta in March, more than 6,000 New Relic customers have used New Relic Insights, spanning industries including ecommerce, manufacturing, insurance, education, entertainment, real estate, healthcare and publishing. With general availability, companies of all sizes and across industries will now be able to purchase and use New Relic Insights to address questions about their software performance, their customers' behaviors and their businesses.

Customer Highlights - How New Relic Insights Produces Data-Driven Business Decisions

Nordstromrack.com | HauteLook, an integrated e-commerce destination that offers limited-time sale events featuring top fashion and lifestyle brands, used New Relic Insights to streamline the operations for their state-of-the-art fulfillment center that ships the tens of thousands of orders they receive per day. Over a five-week period, they were able to reduce downtime hours by more than 80 percent with the data they receive from New Relic Insights.

Envato, a digital marketplace for creative assets and online educational courses with more than 4 million users, used New Relic Insights to effectively manage the crisis created by the recent Heartbleed security bug, which resulted in a mandate that all of their users reset their passwords. Within five minutes, they set up a New Relic Insights dashboard to determine the status of the project, down to individual users. New Relic Insights served as the backbone of the project, with no programming work required.

Quizlet, a leading digital study brand for U.S. students and a top-100 Web site with more than 20 million unique visitors per month, used New Relic Insights to evaluate data from multiple areas of their business. Using actionable intelligence gleaned from Insights, Quizlet has boosted its conversion rates, improved how it works with its content-distribution network provider, and adjusted its user interface to more closely mirror customer usage. They now review the revenue streams for each app, even down to the individual pages. Quizlet also uses New Relic Insights to analyze user behavior on their multi-lingual, text-to-voice lessons to make their apps more engaging for customers.

New Relic Insights Beta Program Highlights

  • More than 6,000 New Relic customers participated
  • The median query time was 9 milliseconds across trillions of data points
  • There were approximately 250,000 queries during the beta

  • Track all the dashboards that have been created
  • Access key dashboards through favorites
  • Search through all the dashboards to find the right one
  • Mark dashboards as favorites to find them quickly
  • Easily switch between different accounts

Supporting Quotes

"We had a sense that New Relic Insights could have a broad impact, but it has been amazing to see our customers in action. They have shown us that New Relic Insights helps them enhance their products, optimize their marketing efforts, better their customer support and even increase productivity in manufacturing. This is an exciting beginning for our customers as they learn how to use real time querying to make data-driven business and IT decisions." - Lew Cirne, Founder and CEO, New Relic

"The most powerful thing about New Relic Insights is that you don't have to custom-instrument anything. The data's already there, so you can ask questions about it after the fact. We've come to rely on New Relic Insights so much that we've basically stopped using all of our other analytics tools." -Andrew Sutherland, Founder and CTO, Quizlet

"New Relic Insights is critical to our day-to-day operations. In less than two days, both technical and non-technical employees were able to start using NRQL to query on both the pre-existing APM data and warehouse data by using custom attributes and events. New Relic Insights' intuitive dashboards provide in-depth visibility into the entire shipment lifecycle allowing us to make smarter business decisions."

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
