Information Managements 40 Vendors Were Watching 2012 is a list of up and coming vendors on our radar that are doing their part to shape the groundswell in information management technology in the 21st Century.
As our editors and advisers reviewed the strengths and of each of these companies, we determined that five main themes were apparent: analytics/visualization, big data, business intelligence, database, integration/governance. Our integration/governance category features providers whose products are prominently used to bring data sources together and/or create context, policies and roles for data creation, ownership and disposal. [Note: Some vendors cross multiple categories.]
