10 Hot Big Data Companies You Should Watch In 2022

Rick Whiting

Here’s a roundup of 10 companies developing big data technologies and big data solutions to keep an eye on in 2022—some well-known, some likely to break out this year and some just starting to appear on industry observers’ radar screens.

Informatica

Top Executive: Amit Walia, CEO

Informatica, founded in 1993, was a pioneer in the data integration/ETL (extract, transform and load) space and in some respects was Silicon Valley’s original “big data” company. Today Informatica is a leading provider of software tools for data management, integration, governance, quality and other tasks running on the company’s flagship Intelligent Data Management Cloud platform.

Like Qlik, Informatica was once a publicly traded company, was taken private and then went public again in 2021.

In an interview with CRN in November, CEO Amit Walia said Informatica had completed its transition to a subscription sales model and doubled its annual recurring revenue. The CEO also said that the portion of its sales from cloud services was growing rapidly.

In the last six months the company has established strategic alliances with some heavy hitters including a cloud integration pact with Databricks, the launch of a cloud analytics service on Microsoft Azure, and a joint cloud data migration initiative with Google Cloud.
