I suspect that's the case even though I have zero experience working with VC firms. It makes good sense to use whatever tools you can to gain an edge when so much cash is in play.

It looks that way. But when you look for good data sources you have to be careful about data manipulation. So if you are going for a startup it would be important to get the big data based analysis of the current market trends from a trusted source.

Hi Venkat. Not so long ago, we heard so much about how start-ups had an infrastructure advantage over established companies because they could buy capacity from the cloud as needed and not be weighed down by the baggage that comes with legacy infrastructure. Now I suspect we're seeing the same sort of thing with business analytics/big-data use. Start-ups don't have legacy data architectures or BI systems with which to contend while established companies do. I'm not sure if it's as much as an advantage as we saw with the cloud, though. What about you?
