Its ETL tool integrates with an extensive list of pre-built data source connectors, loads the data into a cloud environment, and performs the transformations necessary in order to make data consumable by analytics tools such as Sigma, Tableau, Power BI, and more.

NFTGo.io Announced Brand Upgrade to Redefine the NFT User Journey

NFTGo.io | November 08, 2022

NFTGo.io, the leading NFT data analytics and trading aggregation platform, has announced a major brand upgrade. A new front end look has been unveiled to align with its mission of empowering NFT users via a seamless interactive experience. NFTGo aims to guide users at every phase of their journey from discovery, analytics and trade to portfolio management. It is now primely positioned as the only independent NFT data analytics and trading aggregator platform after the other major aggregators, Gem and Genie, have been acquired by OpenSea and Uniswap respectively. Unlike a conventional marketplace like OpenSea, buying NFTs through a trading aggregator is akin to purchasing flight tickets via booking.com. The user gets the best offer across all NFT marketplaces and saves up to 70% of the gas fee. The NFT Data Guru In addition to its best-in-class trading aggregation services, NFTGo.io has been a professional data analytics platform since 2021. Along the way, it has helped over 1 million global users research NFT collections, track whale behaviors, filter out wash trading, discover top mints, and make smarter decisions through the suite of data metrics. NFTGo's data API is currently serving over 500 organizations including major marketplaces such as X2Y2 and Looksrare to support their product development. NFTGo.io has also been actively engaged with renowned universities worldwide to provide data for their research purposes, including Tecnológico de Monterrey, as well as blockchain communities at Oregon State University and Cambridge University. "Our marketplace serves hundreds of thousands of users per month and delivering the best service is the key," said TP, founder and CEO of X2Y2. "We are very selective with our partners to provide the most reliable and accurate data in the market. NFTGo.io is our go-to partner for data integration as they are renowned for their rich and advanced NFT metrics." Redefining the New User Journey Lowes, Founder and CEO of NFTGo.io, said: "The current NFT user experience is fragmented. Information is dispersed and users are jumping between different platforms. They may be sourcing for trending NFT topics and new collections on social media, switch over to an Analytics platform to conduct research with analytical tools, and eventually trade on a separate marketplace. There is no platform in the market that provides a holistic and seamless experience to users, allowing them to discover, analyze, trade, track their holdings and portfolio profit and losses in one place. Our brand upgrade is more than a website redesign, but a showcase of how NFTGo.io is redefining the NFT experience through user-centric design, to help them make better decisions." NFTGo.io also has a resourceful ecosystem of investors to support its growth. "We are proud to invest in NFTGo.io as their team aims to be the future gateway of the NFT ecosystem," said Wyatt Lonergan, Principal at Circle Ventures. "The NFTGo.io team are showing their ambitions for changing the current NFT landscape and improving the user experience with their new product features." Lowes also revealed NFTGo's upcoming plan to value-add to its community: "Community is always our priority. We will be inviting our users to the new homepage beta test around mid November and launching a loyalty program to reward our supporters. Details about the program can be expected soon." To date, NFTGo has launched over 20 innovative and handy NFT features including Watchlist, Top Mints, and Top Collections to capture evolving NFT trends driven by a strong community. NFTGo has also brought about a novel Rarity Model, helping users to better gauge the rarity, and thus, the potential value of the individual NFTs. During this upgrade, NFTGo will be launching a Twitter extension to allow users to access and analyze NFT Project's performance directly on Twitter, providing a frictionless transition from web2 to web3. About NFTGo.io NFTGo.io is a leading NFT aggregation platform that enables its community to analyze NFT market data and transact all in one place. NFTGo offers a wide range of powerful tools and features including NFT market analytics, real-time listings, rarity, whale tracking, watchlist, drops calendar, and trading aggregator. It empowers its users to discover, trade, and manage NFT assets, serving 500+ institutional customers, 1,000+ communities, and 1M+ retail users worldwide.

Accenture to Acquire ALBERT After Completing Tender Offer

Accenture | November 15, 2022

Accenture is to acquire Japanese data science company ALBERT Inc. (President and CEO: Tokyo Stock Exchange Growth Market, Securities Code: 3906), after completing a tender offer. The acquisition will add a large team of data scientists to Accenture to further strengthen its data and AI capabilities for clients. The tender offer was launched on September 29 and closed on November 14. The number of ALBERT's common shares and stock acquisition rights tendered to Accenture significantly exceeds the threshold required for ALBERT to become part of Accenture, equal to two thirds of the ALBERT stock. Upon completion of the transaction, ALBERT will be part of Accenture. Accenture expects to purchase all remaining shares and stock acquisition rights in the coming months, after which ALBERT will be delisted from the Tokyo Stock Exchange. ALBERT offers AI and big data analytics services, AI-based algorithm development, AI implementation consulting, and data science training support, primarily to major corporations in Japan. The company was founded in 2005 and was listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange in 2015. Its data science team of 250 permanent employees and contractors will join Accenture’s Applied Intelligence practice, which provides AI and data-led transformation solutions and services. ALBERT will strengthen Accenture’s ability globally to help its clients manage the total reinvention of their enterprises, which most successful companies will undergo in the next decade. Technology, data and AI will transform every part of their business, enabling new ways of working and engaging with customers, business models and growth opportunities. The acquisition will be Accenture’s latest step to further strengthen its services in Japan that use data to digitally replicate the entire enterprise and to help Japanese companies grow and become more competitive with deep data analytics and AI expertise. Accenture has launched several solutions for data-driven management in Japan recently, for example, to forecast various business scenarios and propose actions to improve the forecasts, and to support clients’ ESG (environment, society, and corporate governance) practices. Atsushi Egawa, who leads Accenture’s business in Japan, said, “Companies today need a 360-degree view on their business to make better and faster decisions. They must look beyond the financials and include, for example, sustainability initiatives, customer experiences, and people development and retraining. Gaining this holistic perspective and being able to simulate every aspect of the business requires deep data science expertise and AI capabilities. Accenture and ALBERT’s team will bring these to clients to help them succeed in their total enterprise reinvention.” “ALBERT’s philosophy is to connect the world with data science and co-create new value for a better future. As leading companies across industries are investing heavily in AI, we’re seeing growing demand for the technologies and skills that are the core of our business. By joining Accenture, which excels at addressing its clients' most complex opportunities and issues, our team can drive even more value for clients and accelerate the implementation of AI in society.” Takeshi Matsumoto, President, and CEO of ALBERT ALBERT will follow other acquisitions Accenture has made to strengthen its data and AI capabilities for clients globally. These include Analytics8 in Australia; Sentelis in France; Bridgei2i and Byte Prophecy in India; Pragsis Bidoop in Spain; Mudano in the UK; and Clarity Insights, End-to-End Analytics and Core Compete in the US. About Accenture Accenture is a global professional services company with leading capabilities in digital, cloud and security. Combining unmatched experience and specialized skills across more than 40 industries, we offer Strategy and Consulting, Technology and Operations services and Accenture Song — all powered by the world’s largest network of Advanced Technology and Intelligent Operations centers.
