Big Data in Boston
VeInteractive | June 28, 2012
As a global data-driven organization with a year-old office in Boston, Massachusetts in the Age of Big Data, it’s no wonder Ve Interactive is so besotted by the exciting innovation happening in our own back yard.
Computers today are millions of times faster and, in turn, storage is millions of times larger – yet the way in which computers handle data has remained the same for nearly four decades of disruptive invention and improvement.
It is clear, then, what needs to be revolutionized. As holds true with any influential industry trend, certain changes need to be made in order to adapt, and in this case keep up, accordingly. Now is the time to rethink and redesign the way computers are made, in order to accommodate the overwhelming trillions of gigabytes of data are being recorded and stored around the world.
While this desperate need to handle big data has technology companies frantic for answers, big data is not necessarily a bad problem. After all, it presents opportunities that, if managed correctly, have the potential to meet or exceed that of personal computing or even the internet.
The reason Boston is on the forefront of this revolution is it’s convenient connection to prestigious universities such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) along with pharmaceutical firms, financial giants and other first class industry players with the right collective intelligence to seek an adequate storage solution, all the while creating nearly 15,000 big data jobs over the next six years.
