2021 CRN Big Data 100: Data Management Companies to Consider

Source: CRN

IT news and analysis outlet CRN recently released its 2021 (and ninth annual) Big Data 100, a ranking of prominent big data technology vendors that solution providers should be aware of. The list is made up of established and emerging big data tools vendors. The list is broken down into five distinct product categories that include business analytics, database systems, data management and data integration software, big data platforms, and data science and machine learning tools.

CRN pre-published a list of The Coolest Data Management and Integration Tool Companies included in the overall list via an interactive slideshow. Though the Big Data 100 is aimed at highlighting software vendors for the purposes of solution provider partnering, Solutions Review is most interesting in highlighting the vendors from that offer unique products and platforms for enterprise organizations. As such, we’ve read through CRN’s complete rankings, available here, to analyze the trending data management companies we think matter most.
