Seattle is quickly becoming the “big data” capital of the world

Companies and organizations can glean valuable information from the data they collect which is why the massive accumulation of data is one of the fastest growing trends in the tech industry. Seattle is already capitalizing on this trend and may soon become the ‘big data’ capital of the world.

Big Data is a big buzzword, used so often these days that the term seems to have lost some of its meaning. “Definition is a problem now, because anybody who wants to have a hot product is going to relate it in some way to big data,” said John Slitz, CEO of Seattle big data startup SpaceCurve.
