KDnuggets placed third on the Data Science Brands list this year, behind IBM Watson and Girls Who Code (we note that Onalytica ranked KDnuggets in spot #8 in last year's Big Data Influencers Report). The report ranks the top 100 most influential brands, as well as the top 100 most influential individuals and publications. Drawing lines between these categories was certainly not straightforward in many cases.

Influence for the sake of influence may not be a worthy goal, but genuine independent recognition as an influencer in a particular realm is often warranted, and can act as a gauge as to how one's efforts are being received. In that vein, KDnuggets is happy to be placed with such esteemed company, from the brands to the individuals to the publications.

Below are the top 10 brands and individuals listed in the report. You can download the full report directly from Onalytica to see the full set of lists for yourself.
