The 10 Hottest Big Data Tools Of 2022

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 tools in the big data space, from cloud data platforms and next-generation databases to advanced data integration and transformation technologies, that really caught our attention in 2022.

Taking On 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.

All that data presents opportunities for businesses who can find a way to “operationalize” it—such as by analyzing it and leveraging the generated insight for competitive advantage.

But that means having the right tools to manage that ever-growing wave of data. 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. And that means opportunities for solution providers.

This year has seen the debut of a number of hot next-generation big data tools, both from established companies and startups, that are setting the pace in data management. They include advanced databases, cloud data platforms, data integration and transformation tools, and software that helps businesses and organizations in specific vertical industries get the most out of data lakehouse systems.

Here’s a look at 10 big data tools that caught our attention in 2022.
