“It’s well understood that there’s huge potential in big data,” said Paul Terry, CEO, PHEMI. “Larger enterprises are well on their way to a big data strategy, and many organizations are deep into investigations. But they’re hitting roadblocks, especially around data management. As soon as you find a way to break down silos, and gather your data, privacy, security and governance become key. To be able to use the data, to explore it with advance analytics and data science—and that’s where the real value is—you absolutely need to be able to find it quickly, and control who sees what. Being recognized by Datanami’s readers and editors for innovation in this field is rewarding, because it validates our efforts to help organizations extract that value while not giving up privacy and governance.”

The Datanami Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards are determined through a nomination and voting process with input from the global Big Data community, as well as selections from the Datanami editors, to highlight key trends, shine a spotlight on technological breakthroughs, and capture a critical cross section of the state of the industry. These awards will be revealed each year to kick off the annual Strata New York conference, which showcases data science, machine learning and analytics for business and technical professionals.

Datanami is the preeminent online portal covering Big Data worldwide and its readers are at the forefront of the data science community. By taking part in our Readers’ Choice program, our well-informed community is rewarding the organizations that are making the greatest impact in advancing the limits of what Big Data makes possible,” said Tom Tabor, CEO of Tabor Communications, publisher of Datanami. “The Datanami Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards send a strong message of support and appreciation from the whole of the global Big Data community, and we are proud to be able to recognize these tremendous accomplishments.
