The Coolest System And Platform Companies Of The 2020 Big Data 100
Part 2 of CRN’s Big Data 100 looks at the vendors solution providers need to know in the systems and platforms space.
All Systems Go
Database software, business analysis applications, data science tools: They are all critical components of a complete big data initiative. Ultimately, however, all those components must run on hardware and software platforms – from hardware servers to cloud platforms – that pull all the pieces together and provide the horsepower to make it all perform.
As part of the 2020 Big Data 100, we’ve put together a list of major system and platform companies – from established vendors to those in startup mode – that solution providers should be aware of. They include the major computer system vendors like Dell Technologies, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and IBM that provide hardware and software for big data applications; cloud service providers like Amazon Web Services, Google and Snowflake that offer cloud-based big data services; and major software developers like Microsoft, Oracle and SAP.
This week, CRN is running the Big Data 100 list in a series of slideshows with vendors of business analytics software, database systems, data management and integration tools, data science and machine learning tools, and big data systems and platforms.
(Some vendors offer big data products that span multiple technology categories: They appear in the slideshow for the technology segment in which they are most prominent.)
