The Coolest Business Analytics Companies Of The 2021 Big Data 100

They’re All Business

Business analysis and data visualization software are critical components of the big data technology stack. They are the tools that business analysts and information workers use to gain understanding and insight from the increasingly huge volumes of data assets businesses are generating today and to share that knowledge throughout an organization.

The global business intelligence and analytics software market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9 percent from $23.9 billion in 2020 to $33.8 billion in 2026, according to market researcher Valuates.

As part of the 2021 Big Data 100, we’ve put together a list of business analytics software companies—from well-established vendors to those in startup mode—that solution providers should be aware of.

These vendors offer everything from self-service reporting and data visualization tools for nontechnical managers and business users to sophisticated business analysis software that helps data analysts and data scientists tackle the most complex analytical tasks.

Many business analytics platforms today incorporate artificial intelligence and machine learning technology to boost their capabilities.

This week CRN is running the Big Data 100 list in slide shows, organized by technology category, with vendors of business analytics software, database systems, data management and integration software, data science and machine learning tools, and big data systems and platforms.

(Some vendors market big data products that span multiple technology categories. They appear in the slide show for the technology segment in which they are most prominent.)
