Insights Success magazine has named Anton Baranchuk, CEO and Co-founder of AnyChart, one of The Most Promising CEOs of 2019. Celebrating this exciting recognition, we repost a special article about him and our company. Published in the latest issue of Insights Success, the story is based on Anton’s recent interview with the magazine. Take a read.

Business acumen when accompanied with technical knowledge makes an ultimate combination that can take IT companies to the new heights. Anton Baranchuk, CEO at AnyChart America, is one such blend of business and technical expertise, who has been transforming the industry with his novel approaches.

Inception Tale

Back in the 2000s, both Flash and XML were on the rise while still quite young, meaning the company had to deal with a number of inherent bugs, security shortcomings, and other issues. That is where the first big clients appeared to be of great help.

When Oracle introduced our data visualization component in APEX, we started getting a whole lot of feedback from users, which greatly helped us in quickly shaping our product development, technical support, and business tactics to the best possible extent. So I can say it was essentially important for us as a tech business to quickly roll out a product and earn our first big clients,” Anton recalls.

Sharp Curve to New Success

Nowadays, the company continues to support its Flash-based charting components. However, the vast majority of AnyChart’s customers already adhere to HTML5, the backbone technology of the contemporary web.

Acknowledging what their entire team already did to get where it is currently positioned, Anton proudly asserts: “ I am happy we’ve done it with such a success and are currently among the few absolute leaders in the global interactive data visualization software market.”

He adds: “ It is crucial for a technology company to stay in the know of what’s going on out there, predict any possible changes that can affect it, follow the trends, and of course, always do your best to fully satisfy the needs of your clients at all times. That’s the way we have been and will keep doing our best to follow.”

Flexible Data Visualization Solutions

Prominently delivering a powerful JavaScript charting engine, the company markets it as a product family comprising four JS visualization libraries, each inherently optimized to serve a specific data viz purpose: AnyChart — for basic charts (over 70 chart types are available out of the box), AnyMap — for maps and seat charts, AnyStock — for stock and financial charts, or basically any date/time charts, AnyGantt — for project and resource charts (Gantt, PERT, etc.). But essentially it is one versatile data visualization tool.

Leading Data Visualization Globally

This year has been particularly exciting for the company. AnyChart has recently announced their new technology alliance partnership with Qlik, adding three new product extensions for Qlik Sense. The partnership enables Qlik’s community of data analysts to be provided with more than 30 new chart types and features such as tooltips natively in the Qlik environment, with no coding required.

Keeping Up with Trends is Essential

Emphasizing upon AnyChart’s distinctiveness in the market, he asserts: “ Due to a big number of ideas and solutions out there in almost every single field, it is important to properly analyze everything and see what’s going to work best in each particular case.”

Invaluable Advice

Anton advises aspiring entrepreneurs to analyze the overall market and think several steps ahead to withstand the complexities. He believes that in order to experience a principle work-ethical environment, a professional and enthusiastic team really matters. Addressing a proverb saying “Fall seven times and stand up eight,” Anton asserts: “ Don’t give up if something goes worse than expected and in case of any failures.”

Bright Future for AnyChart
