CRN Adds Digital Reasoning to Prestigious Big Data List

NASHVILLE, Tenn.– Digital Reasoning, the company that enables automated understanding of complex data sets, was recently named to CRN’s inaugural Big Data 100 list for its work in this burgeoning field. This distinction was given to vendors that demonstrate excellence in several areas, including business analytics, big data management and infrastructure and services.

Kelley Damore, senior vice president and editorial director at CRN, said the 2013 Big Data 100 list highlights the work being done by leading service providers that help meet the changing demands of modern business leaders. Big data technologies are essential for helping clients process and manage this information more effectively to gain greater insight into their respective markets.

“The Big Data 100 vendors set themselves apart with the cutting edge products and services that provide significant growth opportunities for solution providers to build their business and effectively compete in today’s information economy,” Damore said.

Industry studies continue to show that big data is becoming a necessity for organizations throughout all types of industries. A report by IDC said that the global market for big data technology and services is forecast to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 31.7 percent between 2012 and 2016, totaling $23.8 billion. This rapid growth is approximately seven times greater than the information and communication technology sector.

However, there is also a clear indication that firms are struggling to extract value from these large information sets because they lack the proper expertise to do so. Just as a business needs effective analytic tools, firms require IT professionals with backgrounds in big data. The short supply of big data experts will cause many organizations to adopt cloud computing and automation solutions to address the skills shortage. Firms that not only adopt the most effective tools but also attract the right talent will set themselves apart from the competition.

“We are very proud to be recognized by CRN as one of the leaders business analytics software for big data,” said Tim Estes, CEO and founder of Digital Reasoning. “It is a testimony to the deep talent pool of software engineers and data scientists in the state of Tennessee that we can serve and delight the most sophisticated customers in the intelligence community and financial services sector with solutions made in Nashville.”
