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.

Coalesce

Data transformation is often the biggest bottleneck in the data analytics process, according to Coalesce. The Coalesce cloud-native data transformation platform is designed to make data transformation and building data pipelines easier while at the same time scaling up to support the biggest data warehouse systems in the world.

The company said traditional code-first data transformation tools limit scalability. Coalesce uses a “column-aware architecture” that enables data teams to build data warehouses with scalable, reusable and tested data patterns (the latter reusable steps in a data transformation pipeline that represent logical transformations), making data transformations more accurate, efficient, repeatable and verified at scale, according to the company.

Despite the technology’s advanced capabilities, Coalesce also touts the ease-of-use of its offering through an intuitive graphical user interface that bring its data transformation capabilities to a wider audience beyond data engineering programmers.

Coalesce is particularly focused on providing data transformation capabilities for the Snowflake data cloud with the ability to generate Snowflake-native code.
