The 10 Coolest Big Data Tools Of 2021 (So Far)

Rick Whiting

Managing ever-growing volumes of data continues to be a challenge for business and organizations. Here are 10 cool big data management tools and platforms that have caught our attention.

Splunk Observability Cloud and Splunk Security Cloud

Splunk has been expanding its product portfolio to leverage the capabilities of its “data-to-everything” Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud platforms for capturing, indexing and correlating machine data in a searchable repository.

IT system and application monitoring is one of the most common uses for the Splunk platforms. Splunk, based in San Francisco, has doubled down on that by developing the Splunk Observability Cloud for IT and DevOps Teams, a package of Splunk software including Splunk Log Observer, Splunk Real User Monitoring, Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring, Splunk APM and Splunk On-Call.

Observability Cloud for IT and DevOps Teams debuted in beta in October 2020 and became generally available in May.

Systems monitoring and data collection for cybersecurity tasks is another major application of the Splunk platform. In June Splunk launched the Splunk Security Cloud, a data-centric security operations platform that leverages its “data-to-everything” technology to provide advanced security analytics, automated security operations and integrated threat intelligence capabilities.
