Businesses are constantly grappling with the exploding volume, speed and variety of information they produce and utilize on a daily basis in order to remain competitive. Gartner predicts that by 2025 every industry will be transformed by digital business. Recognizing this inevitability, 52 percent of CEOs and senior business executives say their organization has a digital business strategy. Solution providers are on a never-ending quest to deliver innovative tools, technologies and services that can help companies convert big data into meaningful, usable insights.
In response to this challenge, the CRN editorial team identified the top IT vendors at the forefront of data management, business analytics and infrastructure technologies and services. The resulting Big Data 100 list is a valuable guide for solution providers seeking leading big data technology tools to help customers transform their businesses.
“Big data is becoming critical for many businesses. Organizations are faced with managing information streams of unprecedented volume and complexity, and are always in need of more powerful and efficient tools for capturing, storing, organizing, securing and analyzing data to gain business insights,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are pleased to present the Big Data 100, a list of vendors whose ingenuity and creative problem-solving are creating effective new ways to help solution providers tackle this mammoth task, challenging the status quo and keeping pace with the rapidly evolving demands of the data management field.”
