Rising Big Data Stars
Technology for managing and analyzing big data is one of the fastest-growing segments of the IT industry right now. And it’s an area where innovative startups seem to have a competitive edge over the major, established IT vendors. What’s more, the vendors on this list know the value of a good partnership and either have a serious commitment to the channel or plan to leverage it as they “cross the chasm” and go mainstream with their bleeding-edge technologies.
Take a look at the hottest startups in the big data segment from the Emerging Vendors list for 2014. Altogether there are more than 80 startups in the big data/business intelligence space, so we’ve split them into two shows with vendors A-M included here and vendors N-Z in a slideshow to follow.
