Big Data companies: Infochimps Launches Enterprise Cloud For Big Data Analytics

I have previously published a post, ‘There’s A Metric for That’: How Big Data Impacts Biometrics Market and Industry, on the advantages and potentials of utilizing Big Data methods and tools in biometrics applications from a system and control center point of view. Starting from now I will try to post and re-post about Big Data companies and tools that I come across.

Infochimps is one of a growing ecosystem of companies that are programming the knowledge of data scientists, statisticians and programmers into applications that businesspeople can use.
