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.

Starburst

Founded: 2017

Top Executive: Justin Borgman, Co-Founder, CEO

Starburst has been one of the more visible big data startups in recent years, raising $414 million in venture funding—including a $250 million Series D round in February that put the Boston-based company’s value at $3.35 billion.

Starburst’s systems, including Starburst Enterprise and the cloud-base Starburst Galaxy, can query data across any source and location, without needing to move data, making it instantly actionable for data-driven applications and operations. The company’s products are based on the Trino SQL query engine.

In June Starburst acquired Varada, an Israeli developer of data lake analytics acceleration software.
