In a prior post I outlined some thoughts on the outlook for the data analytics sector and referenced a database I prepared of analytics companies.  At the time the list comprised about 400 names categorized into a number of sectors and segments.

I’ve continued to update the list since that time and it now comprises about 800 companies.


It can be referenced via logging in at my website

How has the list changed?  I’ve have seen the following trends:

  • The population of marketing analytics companies is large and has continued to grow.  This sector may be ripe for some consolidation in the near term.
  • The cyber risk group has grown and there will likely be more entrants is this field given the growing level of risk in this area.
  • New companies are emerging in new industries focused on solving problems for which data has now become available.
  • Some companies have been acquired but the pace of M&A activity has been largely outpaced by start up activity.


I continue to update the database – so let me know of any companies I may have missed.

Thanks for sharing, Gregory.
