The Top 10 Big Data Tools And Technologies Of 2018 (So Far)

Rick Whiting

As the volume of data that businesses try to collect, manage and analyze continues to explode, spending for big data and business analytics technologies is expected to reach $210 billion by 2020. Here are 10 big data products that caught our attention in the first half of 2018.

MongoDB 4.0, MongoDB Stitch

In June MongoDB launched MongoDB 4.0, a new release of the company's database software with support for multi-document ACID (atomicity, consistency, isolation, durability) transactions. That provides a consistent view of data across replicated sets and enforce all-or-nothing execution to maintain transaction data integrity.

MongoDB also introduced MongoDB Stitch, a new serverless platform that facilitates the development of mobile and web applications. The system includes Stitch QueryAnywhere, which makes the MongoDB query language available to developers; Stitch Functions, allowing developers to run JavaScript functions; and Stitch Triggers, real-time notifications of changes in the database.

Also new is MongoDB Mobile, which extends MongoDB to iOS and Android devices and Internet of Things assets. And the new MongoDB Stitch Mobile Sync synchronizes data between MongoDB Mobile and the backend database.
