Big data is a big market these days. Investment in big data is expected to reach roughly $46 billion USD by 2018, according to analysis by Markets and Markets. This article on Ventureburn by Rohan Ayyar covers five companies making use of big data and helping other businesses improve their growth and productivity. The big takeaway?

One of the most shared posts on social media this week was this Instagram post from entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk. A good reminder that the world of B2B may be focused on businesses, but it still revolves around humans.
If you are in the B2B space I am stunned by how many forget a human still makes the buying decision … B2b = business to business and B2C is business to consumer … Very different .. Yet basically the same #HumansMakeTheCalls … So many that say that all this new social stuff isn’t for them because they are in b2b please step back and think for a few minutes
