Big Data Business Analytics
Working with big data remains one of the biggest IT challenges that businesses, government agencies and other organizations face today. It's also one of the biggest opportunities for IT vendors and for solution and strategic service providers. The big data market grew 23.5 percent to $22.6 billion in 2015, according to market researcher Wikibon, and will grow at an annual compound growth rate of 14.4 percent to $92.2 billion in 2026.
The CRN editorial team has created the fourth annual Big Data 100, identifying vendors that have demonstrated an ability to innovate in bringing to market products and services that help business work with big data.
We've broken the 100 into three categories: business analytics, data management and big data platforms and tools, with a slide show devoted to each. Some IT vendors compete in more than one category, in which case we've assigned them to the group in which they are most prominent.
Here are 50 business analytics companies offering everything from simple-to-use reporting tools to highly sophisticated software for tackling the most complex data analysis problems. Slide shows of companies with big data management technologies and companies that provide big data platforms and tools will follow this week.
