The Big Data 100 2021

The 2021 Big Data 100 is CRN’s annual ranking of the most important big data technology vendors that solution providers should be aware of.

Businesses today understand that data is not just their operational lifeblood, but a strategic asset that if effectively managed, analyzed and utilized can provide them with insight that leads to new opportunities and competitive advantages.

That recognition is tempered by the exploding growth of data volumes and the fact that data today is often scattered across multiple on-premises and cloud systems—all of which makes managing and leveraging data a significant challenge.

That challenge is driving demand for IT systems and software for processing, managing and analyzing data and getting data and analytical insight to decision-makers and business users.

The global big data market, including products, solutions and services, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.6 percent from $138.9 billion in 2020 to $229.4 billion by 2025, according to ResearchandMarkets.

The growing demand for big data systems and services likewise presents opportunities and challenges for solution providers. Building big data practices and developing expertise around data management and business analysis technologies represents a substantial growth path for the channel.

To help solution providers wo operate a big data practice—or those thinking of starting one—CRN has developed the Big Data 100, an annual list of the most important big data technology vendors the channel should be aware of. As with prior years, this ninth edition of the list includes many of the IT industry’s biggest vendors and established suppliers of data management and business analytics products. But it also includes startups and young companies that develop breakthrough technologies that solution providers could adopt, providing themselves and their customers with a competitive edge.

This year’s list is made up of five categories of big data technology: business analytics, database systems, data management and integration tools, big data systems and platforms, and data science and machine learning tools. Slide shows for each category, along with a slide show of the emerging big data vendors across all categories, will be running throughout the week.
