SAN FRANCISCO– July 10, 2014 – 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.

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.

“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.” – Roger Hoffmann, VP of Technology Operations at Nordstromrack.com | HauteLook
