Today, big data technology is no longer an attempt and experience for enterprises, it has become an important part of the business. According to a survey by research firm IDC, global market revenue and business analysis (BDA) revenues will reach $150.8 billion in 2017, an increase of 12.4% compared to 2016. By 2020, its revenue will exceed $210 billion.
Most of this comes from hardware and services. For big data software, in some cases, each company’s needs are based on the unique needs of the vertical industry. Even in the same industry, such as the retail industry or the manufacturing industry, the needs of each company will be different, so developing a packaged software is difficult to serve potential customers in all industries.
For big data software, the key to success is to provide the underlying applications and tools for the enterprise to build custom applications. People can understand what a real big data application is. Many of these companies that provide applications are well-known in the industry, however, there are also products of interesting startups included.
Below are the applications from 20 companies specializing in big data building or related businesses. There is no special order for this list.
Josh James, former CEO of Omniture, founded Domo in 2010 to provide a way for companies to view data from different sources and islands.

The cloud-based version that supports AWS and Azure is called Teradata Everywhere, which provides massive parallel processing analysis between public cloud-based data and locally deployed data.
Hitachi Vantara’s big data products are based on some popular open source tools. Founded in 2017, Hitachi Vantara is the storage and data center infrastructure business unit of Hitachi Data Systems, a joint venture between the Hitachi Insight Group IoT business and Hitachi Pentaho Big Data. Pentaho is based on the Apache Spark in-memory computing framework and the Apache Kafka messaging system. Pentaho 8.0 also adds support for Apache Knox Gateway to authenticate users and enforce access rules for big data repositories. It also adds support for building analytics applications through Docker containers.
TIBCO’s Statistica is a predictive analytics software for companies of all sizes, using Hadoop technology to perform data mining on structured and unstructured data, solving IoT data, deploying analysis and support on devices and gateways anywhere in the world. In-database analysis of functions from platforms such as Apache Hive, MySQL, Oracle, and Teradata. It uses templates to design complete analysis, so fewer technical users can perform their own analysis and export models from a computer to another device.
Panoply sells so-called intelligent cloud data warehouses using artificial intelligence to eliminate the development and coding required to transform, integrate, and manage data. The company claims that its intelligent cloud data warehouse essentially provides data management as a service that can consume and process up to 1 petabyte of data without any intervention. Its machine learning algorithm can examine data from any data source and perform queries and visualizations on it.
Watson Analytics is IBM’s cloud-based analytics service. When users upload data to Watson, it provides users with questions that can be answered based on data analysis and provides critical data visualization immediately. It also enables simple analysis, predictive analytics, intelligent data discovery, and a variety of self-service dashboards. IBM also has another analytics product, SPSS, that can be used to discover patterns from data and find correlations between data points.
The Statistical Analysis System (SAS) was created in 1976, earlier than Big Data, to process large amounts of data. It can mine, change, manage, and retrieve data from a variety of sources, perform statistical analysis on the data, and present it in a series of methods, such as statistics, charts, etc., or write data to other files. It supports all types of data prediction and analysis points, along with predictive tools to analyze and predict the process.
Sisense claims to provide the only business intelligence software that allows users to prepare, analyze and visualize complex data from multiple sources on commodity server hardware. Sisense’s on-chip high-performance data engine can query terabytes of data in less than a second and provide a set of templates for different industries.
Talend has been focused on generating clean native code for Hadoop without having to write all the code by hand. It provides interfaces to a variety of big data repositories such as Cloudera, MapR, Hortonworks, and Amazon EMR. It recently added a data preparation application that allows customers to create a common dictionary and use machine learning to automate the data cleanup process to prepare data for data processing in less time.
Apache Hadoop is the most popular provider and supporter, and it has partnerships with companies such as Dell, Intel, Oracle, SAS, Deloitte and Capgemini. It consists of five main applications: Cloudera Essentials, the core data management platform, Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub, the data management platform, Cloudera Analytic DB for business intelligence and SQL-based analysis, Cloudera Operational DB, the highly scalable NoSQL database, and Cloudera Data Science and Engineering, data processing, data science, and machine learning running on the Core Essentials platform.
Big data databases are traditionally unstructured, meaning that any type of data can be stored in them. Micro Focus’s Vertica analytics platform uses a traditional column-oriented relational database format, but is specifically designed to handle modern analytics workloads from Hadoop clusters. The platform uses clustering to store data and fully supports SQL, JDBC, and ODBC. It uses columnar storage instead of row storage because accessing columns makes it easier to group data.
SAP HANA itself is not suitable for big data. This is an in-memory RDBMS system. But when users add the big data interface HANA Vora, it becomes more feasible. Vora allows HANA to connect to Hadoop repositories and extend the Apache Spark execution framework for interactive analysis of enterprise and Hadoop data. So data scientists can gain the power of HANA by supporting big data storage.
Oracle’s database giant has a full suite of big data integration products, such as data integration platform cloud, stream analysis, IoT support, and support for Oracle Event Hub cloud services, supporting real-time data streaming, bulk data processing, enterprise data quality and data governance capabilities. Apache Kafka.
Although MongoDB is the leading database, Cassandra has an advantage in scalability. This was written by former Facebook employees who spanned a large number of commodity servers to ensure no fault points and advanced fault tolerance.
Want to calculate or learn about new things about things? Wolfram Alpha is a great tool for finding information about everything. Doug Smith of Proessaywriting said his company uses the platform for advanced research in finance, history, social and other professional fields. For example, if you enter “Microsoft,” you will receive input explanations, fundamentals and financial information, latest transactions, price history, performance comparisons, data return analysis, correlation matrices, and many other information.
Spotfire is an in-memory analytics platform that includes support for big data repositories and performs predictive analytics. It provides a connector for Apache Hadoop that allows users to perform data mashups, data discovery and analysis tasks on big data, just as they do for Oracle, SAP and other traditional data sources. It also supports real-time data-driven event visualization and an artificial intelligence-driven recommendation engine that reduces data discovery time.
