Spending on big data and business analytics products is expected to reach $210 billion by 2020, according to market researcher IDC, up from $150.8 billion in 2017. While that growth is fueling a continuous stream of startups in the big data arena, it’s also pushing more established players to maintain a rapid pace of developing and delivering new and updated big data products.
Not surprisingly, many of those new and updated products are focused on the cloud. That includes software and services for running and managing business intelligence, database, data warehouse and data lake systems on cloud platforms. It also includes software for building pipelines to cloud-based data systems and tools for improving data accuracy and controlling access to cloud-based data.
