The 10 Coolest Big Data Tools Of 2022 (So Far)

Rick Whiting

Data is an increasingly valuable asset for businesses and a critical component of many digital transformation and business automation initiatives. Here’s a look at 10 cool tools in the big data management and analytics space that made their debut in the first half of the year.

Tableau Cloud

Tableau Cloud, a cloud-based version of Tableau’s popular data analytics and visualization software, is the next generation of what was previously known as Tableau Online.

Tableau Cloud, launched in May, is connected to the Salesforce Customer 360 system and underlying Salesforce Customer Data Platform, making it possible to analyze customer data – including sales data, service case data and data from marketing campaigns – and then use Salesforce Flow workflow automation applications to act on the analytical results.

Tableau also added a number of new capabilities to the core Tableau platform that are designed to bring data analytics to a wider audience. That includes an AI-based augmented-analytics feature that adds automated, plain-language explanations to Tableau dashboards at scale.

Tableau has also offered previews of Model Builder, powered by Salesforce’s Einstein Discovery AI and machine learning technology, for building predictive analytical models.
