The (big) data market through the eyes of a VC, Matt Turck of FirstMark Capital:
Still early: Overall, we’re still in the early innings of this market. Over
the last couple of years, some promising companies failed (for example:
Drawn to Scale), a number saw early exits (for example: Precog, Prior
Knowledge, Lucky Sort, Rapleaf, Nodeable, Karmasphere), and a handful saw
more meaningful outcomes (for example: Infochimps, Causata, Streambase,
ParAccel, Aspera, GNIP, BlueFin labs, BlueKai).
