Thank you for sharing this.  Rather than just being a new advancement in technology, it is almost like witnessing a waking up from a dream where one realizes that the world isn't the way one thought it was.  Big Data is like that, in that it changes our perceptions.

Hi Noreen: This was an interesting read, thank you for sharing the list of startups. 

A lot of VC organizations are launching funds with a very sharp big data focus..Accel Partners launched a $100M big data fund, for example. I think the combined investment in big data startups was some $2.5 billion last year; clearly the analytics trend is here to stay.

Being startups, it would be interesting to see how they would leverage the power of big data in the most "creative" way possible. Thanks for sharing this Noreen

Does look like Big-Data is where the money is at least for the rest of 2012 and maybe 2013...databases, analytics, data management and reporting. Amazing how the venture capitalists are so timely in cashing out to the stock market as well. Often leaving the stocks to take a dip once they are happily gone.

Hi Noreen, this is a good mix of companies with a big-data story to tell. It's especially interesting to me to see companies, like Splunk, whose origins pre-date the "big-data" label recast themselves as players in this market. I suppose that's only expected!

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
