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.

ThoughtSpot

Top Executive: CEO Sudheesh Nair

ThoughtSpot’s business intelligence system relies on search- and AI-driven analytics, helping users generate insight from potentially billions of rows of data

In March ThoughtSpot, based in Sunnyvale, Calif., struck a deal to buy SeekWell, a developer of technology that will allow ThoughtSpot users to better operationalize analytical results within business applications.

In October 2020 ThoughtSpot added the ThoughtSpot DataFlow feature to its business analytics platform, making it possible to load data from source databases and file systems into the Falcon in-memory database that powers the ThoughtSpot system. That allows users to connect to data sources and schedule data synchronizations—all without coding.

In 2019 ThoughtSpot raised $248 million in funding, putting its value at close to $2 billion. In March of this year data cloud service provider Snowflake acquired an equity stake in ThoughtSpot with a $20 million investment.
