The team here at insideAI News is deeply entrenched in keeping the pulse of the big data ecosystem of companies from around the globe. We’re in close contact with the movers and shakers making waves in the technology areas of big data, data science, machine learning, AI and deep learning. Our in-box is filled each day with new announcements, commentaries, and insights about what’s driving the success of our industry so we’re in a unique position to publish our quarterly IMPACT 50 List. These companies have proven their relevance by the way they’re impacting the enterprise through leading edge products and services. We’re happy to publish this rapidly evolving list of the industry’s most impactful companies!

The selected companies come from our massive data set of vendors and associated industry metrics. We use machine learning to analyze the industry to determine an optimized ranking for this list. We’re using a custom RankBoost algorithm adapted specifically for the big data community along with an expanding group of public and proprietary data sources. The rankings include an indicator for upward movement in the list and also for companies newly added.

Companies (along with their subsidiaries) on the list exhibit technology leadership, strength of offering, proven innovation, positivity of message, quality perception by the enterprise community, sentiment and frequency of social media buzz, high profile of members of the C-suite, and in the case of public companies: positive financial indicators and stock price, plus so much more!
