42 Big Data Startups

Which ones are missing? I would add Pervasive, Tableau, Splunk, Lavastorm, Yottamine, Alteryx, Pivotal as well as non-product companies. For instance, publishers like DataScienceCentral (self-funded, profitable, with a large list of big data clients). This list contains (too) many Hadoop-related companies.

You want to post in these groups only. The only information that is quickly available for each group, is the time when the last posting occured. Intuitively, the newer the last posting, the most active the group. There are some caveats such as groups where all postings come from one single user - a robot - for instance groups that focus on posting job ads exclusively. Making Advanced Analytics Work for You.
