The Coolest Business Analytics Companies Of The 2022 Big Data 100

Rick Whiting

Part 1 of CRN’s Big Data 100 includes a look at the vendors solution providers should know in the big data business analytics space.

Starburst

Top Executive: CEO Justin Borgman

Starburst Data develops Starburst Enterprise, the company’s commercial offering of the Trino open-source, distributed SQL query engine that locates and queries data across distributed data sources. The technology, promoted as an alternative to conventional data warehouses, is capable of analyzing data where it resides without having to move it—a major advantage in cloud and hybrid IT environments with increasingly dispersed data sources.

In 2021 the company launched Starburst Galaxy, a cloud-based, fully managed edition of its analytics platform, and Starburst Stargate, an add-on for Starburst Enterprise for cross-cloud analytics.

In February Boston-based Starburst raised $250 million in Series D funding, boosting its valuation to $3.35 billion.
