The Coolest Data Management And Integration Software Companies Of The 2022 Big Data 100
Part 3 of CRN’s Big Data 100 includes a look at the vendors solution providers should know in the big data management and data integration software space.
There is an increasingly popular saying that every company today is a data company. That’s because just about every business of any size is striving to collect, manage and leverage data for competitive advantage—either operationally or through the use of increasingly sophisticated data analysis technology.
The problem is finding the right tools and processes to collect, process, integrate and manage all that data. The total amount of data created and replicated worldwide reached 64.2 zettabytes in 2020, according to market researcher IDC, and is continuing to grow at a CAGR of 23 percent. That means the total “global datasphere” will reach 181 zettabytes in 2025.
To make productive use of the ever-growing volumes of data businesses and organizations find themselves wrestling with today, they need leading-edge technologies to identify and unify siloed data, manage and control data pipelines, prepare and transform data for analysis and machine learning tasks, improve and maintain data quality, and govern and secure data against misuse.
As part of the 2022 Big Data 100, CRN has compiled a list of data management and data integration software companies that solution providers should be aware of. They include established vendors such as Informatica, Confluent and Talend, as well as hot startups like Airbyte, Bigeye and Syncari.
This week CRN is running the Big Data 100 list in slide shows, organized by technology category, with vendors of business analytics software, database systems, data management and integration software, data warehouse systems, big data systems and cloud platforms, and data science and machine learning tools. Another slide show will highlight the startup companies within each category.
Some vendors market big data products that span multiple technology categories. They appear in the slide show for the technology segment in which they are most prominent.
