Foundational Support For Big Data
Business analytics software, databases, data management tools are critical for managing big data and leveraging it for competitive advantage. But all those technologies need to run on foundational systems including hardware servers, operating systems and cloud platforms. And most of those are provided by some of the biggest names in the IT industry.
As part of the CRN 2022 Big Data 100, we’ve put together the following list of big data system and cloud platform companies that solution providers should be familiar with.
Many of these companies are household names like IBM, Dell Technologies and Hewlett Packard Enterprise that develop the underlying hardware/software that power big data analytics and operational applications. In the cloud, where many businesses are deploying big data projects, cloud platform companies like Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud provide the platforms for those initiatives.
Long-established software giants like Microsoft and Oracle provide foundational cloud systems and databases for big data initiatives, in addition to offering their own broad portfolios of data management and data analysis software. Other vendors like Cloudera, Databricks and Snowflake represent a new generation of big data platform providers.
This week CRN is running the Big Data 100 list in a series of slide shows, organized by technology category, spotlighting vendors of business analytics software, database systems, data warehouse systems, data management and integration software, data science and machine learning tools, and big data systems and cloud platforms.
Some vendors market big data products that span multiple technology categories. They appear in the slideshow for the technology segment in which they are most prominent.
