As big data volumes explode, demand grows for database, data management and business analytics technologies for deriving value from that data. Here are 10 cool big data platforms and tools that have debuted so far this year.

Big Data, Big Demands

Not only are the volumes of data being collected by businesses and organizations growing exponentially, that data is increasingly scattered across on-premises, cloud, hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud systems. That’s increasing the complexity of managing, accessing and utilizing that data.

IT vendors, both startups and established players, are racing to develop the next-gen platforms and tools that make it possible to manage that data and make it accessible to analysts and information workers who can use it for insights and competitive advantage.

Here are 10 such big data platform and tool offerings that have caught our attention so far in 2020.

Many of the featured products are new cloud Database-as-a-Service platforms and related software. That’s no surprise: In a July 1 report market researcher Gartner said that by 2022, 75 percent of all databases will be deployed or migrated to a cloud platform, largely for databases used for business analytics and for Software-as-a-Service applications.
