The New Generation Of Big Data Companies

It’s become a bit of a cliché that data is the fuel oil of the digital economy. But there’s no denying that data is a critical component of many business and IT initiatives today, including business analytics, cloud migration and digital transformation.

Businesses and organizations, however, are still struggling to manage, analyze and derive value from the growing volumes of data they collect from their operational systems, their sales and marketing applications, and from outside sources. Some have trouble just identifying what data they have and tracking where it is.

As data volumes grow, collecting, preparing, integrating, managing, analyzing and protecting data is an increasingly complex task. Established companies like Microsoft, Oracle and Amazon Web Services, along with younger companies like Snowflake and Confluent, offer big data products and services to help meet these big data challenges.

As is often the case in the IT industry, however, some of the most innovative big data technologies are being developed by a new generation of startups. As part of CRN’s Emerging Vendors for 2021, here are 17 hot big data startups, founded in 2015 or later, that solution providers should be aware of.
