International Software Awards Program Recognizes Singlestore Helios for Best SaaS for Business Intelligence or Analytics and Best SaaS Innovation in the Internet of Things

SAN FRANCISCO – AUGUST 10, 2020 – SingleStore, The Single Database for All Data-Intensive Applications for operational analytics and cloud-native applications, is a finalist in the 2020 Software as a Service Awards program in two categories: Best SaaS for Business Intelligence or Analytics, and Best SaaS Innovation in the Internet of Things. Hundreds of organizations applied for these awards, with entries coming from North America, Europe, the U.K., the Middle East, and Australia. SaaS Awards winners will be announced on August 25, 2020.

SingleStore was named as a finalist for its unique combination of the world’s fastest in-memory rowstore, world’s fastest disk-based columnstore, predictive low-latency analytic query capability, and MySQL compatibility, offered in a single cloud database, Singlestore Helios. SingleStore calls its blend of multiple datatypes SingleStore Universal StorageTM. Universal Storage can eliminate the need for separate databases and separate tables for transactions, analytics, and caching. SingleStore is able to ingest and process millions of real-time events per second, while simultaneously serving thousands of highly-concurrent requests from API calls, and queries from real-time BI dashboards and machine learning models, all within milliseconds.

“We are honored to be named a finalist in the 2020 SaaS Awards,” said Raj Verma, co-CEO of SingleStore. “Singlestore Helios delivers instant, effortless access to the world’s fastest, most scalable data platform for operational analytics, machine learning, and AI. Growth in the database market is moving towards the cloud. To survive in the era of COVID-19, successful businesses are pivoting towards immediate digital transformation. Those businesses that had already begun are accelerating their efforts. Singlestore Helios brings real-time decision-making to a new level, and unlike our competitors, we are built for this very use case, and offer the lowest latency in the marketplace.”

James Williams, head of operations for the SaaS Awards, said: “Software-as-a-service’s force for positive disruption never seems to abate, with seemingly unending solutions for modern business. This year is a special case. SaaS is not only at the forefront of remodeling existing business processes; it’s also helping organizations to use pioneering solutions to respond to unavoidable global disruptions. Indeed, SaaS technologies are now celebrated as providing new and inventive ways for organizations to perform complex tasks in a changing international landscape. From fulfilling orders, to arranging meetings, to delivering new business services, SaaS technologies are more important than ever.”

Williams added that the program donated entry fees from shortlisted entrants in this year’s Communication, Collaboration and Conferencing category to the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Response Fund. “Together, we have raised \$3,555 for the fund, an achievement we hope underscores the vital need for sustained organizational innovation across all sectors,” he said.
