Database Trends and Applications recently released its 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards winners, a listing of the best solution providers chosen by the publication’s subscribers. What sets this apart from other DBTA awards programs is that actual users have nominated and chosen the winners, not the journal’s researchers – a trend that is becoming increasingly common amongst the major analyst houses. The awards are broken down by technology category and aimed at highlighting the products that “provide unique value.”
DBTA features 28 category specific awards that span a number of solution providers. Given the changing nature of each marketplace that was analyzed, some of the vendors are household names while others are up-and-comers looking to establish themselves in the data and analytics space. We’re profiling each category winner to see if user sentiment lines up with our own research in an attempt to help you select the best data integration solution. For an even deeper breakdown of the top tools, consult our Buyer’s Guide for Data Integration Tools.
The crowd selects: Talend Studio

The company’s recent data preparation functionality and support for multi-cloud environments are welcomed additions.
