Think Big Analytics
Perhaps, surprisingly, one of the most buzzed-about big data startups in 2013 is a solution provider.
Think Big Analytics, based in Mountain View, Calif., is building a business around providing a variety of big-data-related services, ranging from consulting and engineering to the development of custom applications. Think Big is now recognized as one of the earliest big data-focused solution providers to emerge in the channel, boasting extensive experience in both Apache Hadoop and the field of data science.
Think Big raised $3 million in financing in April, backed by investors including former Cisco executive Daniel Scheinman.
