SAN FRANCISCO, May 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StreamSets Inc., provider of the industry’s only enterprise DataOps platform, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named StreamSets to its 2018 Big Data 100 list. This annual list recognizes the ingenuity of tech suppliers bringing to market innovative offerings for harnessing the increasingly huge amounts 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 to remain competitive. Solution providers are on a never-ending quest to tame this data with innovative tools, technologies and services that can convert it into meaningful, usable statistics.

In response to this challenge, the CRN editorial team has identified the IT vendors at the forefront of data management, business analytics, and infrastructure technologies and services. The resulting Big Data 100 list is a valuable guide for solution providers seeking out key big data technology suppliers.

StreamSets provides a DataOps platform for building and operating continuous data movement architectures that connect traditional and big data sources to analytics platforms and applications. The StreamSets platform lets enterprises build dataflows 10 times faster, run them with end-to-end visibility and control, and iterate dataflow logic quickly in response to changing technology and business needs. It is founded on an open source core, StreamSets Data Collector, which has been downloaded well over 1 million times, and features a cloud-native Control Hub for operational management.

“The IT community is now able to collect massive volumes of valuable data — a veritable treasure trove of information for growing businesses,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “But reaping the benefits of these huge information streams is a complex and delicate process requiring expertise in data capture, storage, organization, tiering, security and analysis. The vendors on CRN’s 2018 Big Data 100 list have demonstrated an exceptional ability to help solution providers and their customers tackle this enormous project. The innovative products and services they have brought to market enable companies to not only manage large amounts of data, but to extract real value from it.”

“This honor recognizes our innovative DataOps platform, which brings DevOps sensibilities to data movement,” said Shekhar Iyer, president of StreamSets. “StreamSets helps global enterprises and their service providers deliver on scalable, data-driven initiatives such as data lakes, IoT, cybersecurity and streaming applications. Uniquely, our platform is architected with intelligent pipelines to inspect data as it flows, which helps to ensure real-time data quality, data protection and dataflow performance.”
