This annual list recognizes the ingenuity of tech suppliers bringing to market innovative solutions for harnessing the increasing volumes of data generated in today’s digital world, raising the bar for data management and challenging established IT practices.

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.

The resulting Big Data 100 list is a valuable guide for solution providers seeking out key big data technology suppliers.

Pepperdata was among those recognized for its innovative solution.

“To effectively harness data is critical for any business. 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.”
