BigDATAwire (Formerly Datanami) Reveals Winners of 2022 Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 28, 2022 — BigDATAwire (formerly Datanami), the leading publication covering big data, analytics, and AI news, today announced the winners of its seventh annual Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards. The awards recognize the companies and products that have made a difference in the big data community in 2022 and provide insight into the current state of the industry.

BigDATAwire has designated two categories of awards: (1) Readers’ Choice, where winners have been elected by a global community of readers, and (2) Editors’ Choice, where winners have been selected by BigDATAwire editors. The process started with an open nomination process, with voting taking place throughout the month of October. 

“Navigating the world of big data isn’t easy these days, as the number of players has skyrocketed,” said BigDATAwire Managing Editor Alex Woodie. “That’s why the Readers’ Choice Award is so valuable, as it signals which products have met the ultimate test: Adoption by real-world users. Congratulations to all the winners of the 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards!” 

These awards, now in their seventh year, are gaining recognition as being among the most prestigious recognition given by the big data and AI community to its own each year, and are the only awards that provide open voting to a worldwide audience of end users.
