Part 1 of CRN’s Big Data 100 takes a look at the vendors solution providers should know in the data analytics and business intelligence space.

Analytical Approach

It’s no surprise that in diagrams and visual representations of big data IT systems, data analytics and visualization software are usually at the top of the big data “technology stack.” They are the software tools that business analysts and information workers use to gain understanding and insight from the exponentially growing volumes of data businesses are generating today and to share that knowledge throughout an organization.

Worldwide sales of business intelligence software are expected to reach $25.73 billion this year, up 8.6 percent from $23.70 billion in 2022, and reach $34.16 billion by 2028, according to market research firm Statista.

“Companies’ needs for data insights, customer analyses, and all kinds of business processes have strongly increased due to digitization and data that is collected online. This development drives the demand for enterprise software, especially business intelligence software,” said a Statista report.

As part of the CRN 2023 Big Data 100, we’ve put together the following list of business analytics software companies—from well-established vendors to those in startup mode—that solution providers should be familiar with.

These vendors offer everything from self-service reporting and data visualization tools for nontechnical managers and business users to high-performance business analysis software needed by data analysts to tackle the most complex business intelligence tasks.

This week CRN is running the Big Data 100 list in a series of slide shows, organized by technology category, spotlighting vendors of business analytics software, database systems, data warehouse and data lake systems, data management and integration software, data observability tools, and big data systems and cloud platforms.

Some vendors market big data products that span multiple technology categories. They appear in the slideshow for the technology segment in which they are most prominent.
