Big Data Business Analytics
Big Data remains one of the IT industry's most significant megatrends. Revenue from big-data-related hardware and software products and services will reach $38.4 billion this year, according to market researcher Wikibon, and exceed $50 billion by 2017.
With that in mind, the CRN editorial team has created the second annual Big Data 100, identifying vendors that have demonstrated an ability to innovate in bringing to market products and services that help businesses work with big data.
We've broken the 100 into three categories: Business Analytics (here), Data Management and Big Data Infrastructure, with a slideshow devoted to each. (Along with some Emerging Big Data Vendors.) Some IT vendors compete in more than one category, in which case we've assigned them to the group in which they are most prominent.
Here are 45 business analytics companies offering everything from simple-to-use reporting tools to highly sophisticated software for tackling the most complex data analysis problems. Slide shows of companies with big data management technologies and companies that provide big data infrastructure, tools and services will follow this week.
