One firm out of Denver, Colorado is setting itself up to be the largest Big Data player in 3D Printing.
Just about everyone has big data. This is due to the facts that processing has become so cheap, companies have many applications, many businesses units. This gives firms more facts than they can possible digest. More and more administration systems create more and more data.
Inexpensive processing means we can collect and store and share more data. As an example, today’s Iphone has more processing power than all the computer power on the spacecraft NASA launched in the 1960’s.
The trend is that everyone is harvesting everything. In another example, a 1 terabyte hard drive now costs $80 and you can be bought off the shelf at any retail electronics store. Batenburg compares this to spending $1 million for same storage space 10 years ago.
So is it logical that big data can be the next big global industry? Both Rich Batenburg, Jr. of Cliintel and I say: “It already is!”
