Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms 2014

Predictive analytics and other categories of advanced analytics are becoming a major factor in the analytics market. We evaluate the leading providers of advanced analytics platforms that are used to build solutions from scratch.

It’s such a pivotal moment for data scientists and the growing open-source R community that Gartner has embarked on its first ever Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms. Gartner estimates advanced analytics to be a $2 billion market that spans a broad array of industries globally, and ‘Gartner predicts business intelligence and analytics will remain top focus for CIOs Through 2017.’ We believe that this new Magic Quadrant puts a spotlight on big data as the great analytics disruptor which we feel highlights the need for solutions like Revolution Analytics’ that are built upon a flexible, open platform, and designed for today’s Big Data Big Analytics challenges.” — Dave Rich

Having ‘INSERT EXEC nested issues’?

Without manual intervention, one level of INSERT…EXECUTE is the limit

An INSERT EXEC statement cannot be nested.

It is telling you is that you can’t have a proc that does an INSERT-EXEC operation call another proc that also does an INSERT-EXEC operation.

Two basic steps to solve this:

1) Create a #Temp table or @Table var
2) OPENROWSET your stored procedure data into it


INSERT INTO #YOUR_TEMP_TABLE
SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET ('SQLOLEDB','Server=(local);TRUSTED_CONNECTION=YES;','set fmtonly off EXEC [ServerName].dbo.[StoredProcedureName] 1,2,3')
