The 10 Coolest Big Data Platforms And Tools Of 2020 (So Far)

Rick Whiting

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.

MongoDB Atlas Data Lake, Atlas Search And Realm

Next-generation database developer MongoDB announced in June the general availability of new data lake, search and mobile database software that offers solution providers and ISVs more opportunities to develop applications and solutions that leverage data wherever it resides.

Atlas Data Lake and Atlas Search, in beta since 2019, significantly expanded the capabilities of MongoDB Atlas, the company’s fully managed cloud Database-as-a-Service that launched in 2016.

Atlas Data Lake uses the same MongoDB Query Language as the MongoDB database to run queries against data lakes, including long-running analytical queries, and can work with real-time transactional data. The Atlas Search engine is integrated with the MongoDB Atlas cloud database, using a consistent API, to provide search capabilities for applications developed for Atlas.

MongoDB also announced the general availability of MongoDB Realm, a mobile database that incorporates popular open-source technology the company acquired last year when it bought Realm.io.
