The 10 Hottest Big Data Startups Of 2021 (So Far)
Businesses are looking to next-generation databases, data management tools and big data analytics software to help them leverage huge volumes to gain a competitive edge. Here’s a look at 10 hot startups developing leading-edge technologies that help solution providers and customers meet their big data challenges.
Top Executive: Gary Hagmueller, CEO
Headquarters: Palo Alto, Calif.
Dgraph develops a native “GraphQL” graph database, a new generation of database technologies that are challenging the predominance of traditional relational database systems. Graph databases not only store data, but they store information about the relationships among the data using graph architectures to represent the data for semantic queries.
While graph databases are especially effective for social media and other tasks where data relationships are critical, Dgraph promotes its database for effectively turning siloed data across complex data structures into real-time intelligence. Last month the company said it was the No. 1 graph database on GitHub.
In April Dgraph hired Gary Hagmueller, previously CEO with Clara Analytics, a provider of AI technology to the commercial insurance industry, as Dgraph’s new CEO. Company founder Manish Jain moved to the role of chief technology officer.
