Big Data Companies, Big Business: Top 100 Heavy Hitters

Top 100 Big Data Companies

Our current technology is advancing so rapidly, sometimes we need to invent new ways to just keep up with things. Enter Big Data. Big data just means data so gigantic or complex that it can’t be processed using typical CPU’s. It sounds simple enough, but the best of the best have worked tirelessly to improve the speed and proficiency of big data technologies.

According to Onalytica:

87% of enterprises believe Big Data analytics will redefine the competitive landscape of their industries within the next three years. Corporations are spending massive amounts of money in studies that involve how the cloud, the internet of things and big data analytics are changing their industries. The industrial internet is projected to be worth around $500B in 2020 made up of the sales of hardware, software and services.”

So wait a second… Big Data will be a $500 billion dollar industry in 5 years?

You read that right. Now would seem like a great time to invest in big data! This projected figure continues to prove what we’ve known all along – how important big data innovators are to the tech industry, and to businesses worldwide.
