WaLa!, a big data search and analytics platform provider, has received the Coup d’Tech Award from the Louisiana Technology Council (LTC) eWARDS for the Shreveport/Bossier City region. The award honors the company’s innovative approach to creating a powerful, real-time business intelligence for today’s organizations.
The WaLa! platform is set to launch this fall. It is a semantic-based big data search and analytics platform that harnesses big data and turns it into insights that any employee at any level of an organization can use. Employees can take control of that information with real-time capabilities that span multiple data types and multiple data sources.
eWARDS celebrates the innovation and achievement for those in Louisiana who have had a positive impact in technology over the past year. The eWARDS prize was presented to WaLa! during the ceremony last month. Angie White, vice president of workforce marketing, North Louisiana Economic Partnership, was responsible for nominating WaLa!
“We’d like to thank Angie, along with the Louisiana Technology Council, for presenting WaLa! with this honor, which we believe will be the first of many more to come for our company. We are out to truly make a difference in the market and shed more light on the technology innovation that exists in our region,” said Rory Welch, CEO of WaLa!
“The WaLa! platform is designed to make real-time business intelligence instantly accessible at every level of the organization, enabling big data resources to have a more far-reaching impact. We’re very pleased that the judges recognized the significance of our work in this area,” Welch added.
