Dun & Bradstreet Recognized As A Data-as-a-Service Top Innovator At DataWeek 2012

D&B (NYSE: DNB), the world’s leading source of commercial information and insight on businesses, announced it has been awarded the DataWeek Award 2012 for exceptional innovation in the Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) category. The award is part of DataWeek, a six-day conference and festival hosted in downtown San Francisco from September 22 – 27, 2012.

“With the exponential growth of data we are seeing, customers are leveraging accurate and insightful customer and prospect information to drive key business decisions. Additionally, placing this insight directly in the hands of the users delivers a critical business advantage. D&B is proud to be recognized for delivering a DaaS solution that makes it easier for enterprises to get a 360-degree view of every customer and prospect,” said Mike Sabin, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing Solutions at D&B. “We continue to evolve our DaaS platform and enhance our D&B360 solution to empower businesses to capture new market opportunities, and make real-time decisions that drive business growth.”

D&B360 is an integrated solution that delivers D&B’s proprietary business data and other sources of information such as social media and news, into CRM and other enterprise software applications. D&B360 is the only DaaS solution that combines insight on more than 210 million businesses and 100 million contacts worldwide to enable smarter business decisions.

Category entrants were judged based on a number of factors, including the extent of solution integration with other technologies, competitive advantages and sample clients of the product, among others. Earlier this year, D&B360 received the 2012 Informatica Innovation Award.

“We are happy to recognize some of the best talent in the industry today,” said Geoff Domoracki, CEO of DataWeek. “We would like to create a platform for innovative companies to have a forum to discuss how big data can be harnessed. In an information economy, data is the new capital. Corporations are unlocking the value in their terabytes of data, city governments are opening up their city data for public use, and thousands of “data startups” are building on top of emerging social data feeds. The Data Revolution is when business and society realizes that data is not just how you analyze your business: data is your business. We succeed in business, technology, and society when we join a new ecosystem of data feeds, data infrastructure, data technologies, and data markets.”
