Companies vary in their approach to data management. Some enterprises collect only a few types of data, thus traditional data warehouse solutions work well. For others, expanding sources from which they retain data is forcing them to change their viewpoint, and they’ve moved over to collecting all of their data into a data lake. The benefits of the data lake approach are numerous, and as data volumes continue to expand, companies are increasingly realizing the need for a more agile and unstructured way to manage data.
In that spirit, we’ve turned our gaze to the future of data lake tools. Whether its inclusion in a recent analyst report, the release of an innovative new tool, or a bump in venture funding, these are the providers that have earned watch list status for the year ahead.

With these capabilities enterprise businesses can move large data volumes for real-time analysis and hasten data movement with minimal impact. HVR is scalable for multiple systems and projects.
