Trend-Setting Products in Data and Information Management for 2018

Page 1 of 11 next >>

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail," Ralph Waldo Emerson famously advised. And, in the world of data management, companies are doing just that.

New products and services are continually emerging to help companies gain more value and insight from the large quantities of data they are collecting and storing. It is not just that new products are coming on the market, but established offerings are also being updated with cutting-edge capabilities.

Today, innovative approaches, such as Hadoop, Spark, NoSQL, and NewSQL, are being used in addition to more established technologies, such as the mainframe, and relational and MultiValue database systems. In addition, artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities are some of the newer approaches being introduced in products. Cloud solutions are working alongside on-premises platforms, and the range of open source technologies is growing. Software-defined data centers are being deployed to augment hardware-based approaches. Newer interfaces help bridge the gap for business users and reduce friction between modern big data technologies and the BI tools they are accustomed to working with.

To help bring these resources to light, each year, Database Trends and Applications magazine looks for offerings that promise to help organizations derive greater benefit from their data, make better decisions, work more efficiently, achieve greater security, and address emerging challenges. In total, this list of forward-looking products helps illuminate the path on which the data management market is headed. On the following pages, we present DBTA’s list of Trend-Setting Products for 2018. We encourage you to continue your exploration by visiting the companies’ websites for additional information.

In addition, in this issue, we include “Product Spotlight” articles penned by company executives who shine light on what makes their products unique.
