Emerging Big Data Vendors To Know In 2022

Rick Whiting

As data becomes an increasingly valuable asset for businesses—and a critical component of many digital transformation and business automation initiatives—demand is growing for next-generation data management and data analytics technology. Here’s a look at 14 startups that are providing it.

Tackling The Big Challenges Of Big Data

In 2025 the total amount of digital data and information created, captured, copied and consumed worldwide will reach 181 zettabytes, up from 79 zettabytes in 2021, according to an estimate from market researcher Statista.

Businesses are struggling to manage all this data—not to mention analyze and otherwise leverage it for competitive advantage. Global spending for big data products and services, not surprisingly, is expected to explode from $162.6 billion last year to $273.4 billion in 2026, according to a MarketsandMarkets report.

That’s why the big data technology space remains one of the most active segments of the IT industry. A new generation of startups is setting the pace in providing leading-edge technologies in data management and data analytics.

Demand for big data technology, services and expertise is running high right now. And that means opportunity for solution providers. As part of CRN’s Emerging Vendors for 2022, here are 14 big data startups, founded in 2016 or later, that solution providers should be aware of.
