The Massachusetts Big Data Report
The 2014 Mass Big Data Report: A Foundation for Global Leadership has been assembled and released with support from the Innovation Institute at the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative and the Massachusetts Competitive Partnership. This report represents a foundational analysis of the regional Mass Big Data ecosystem and its position as a global leader in the expanding fields of big data, open data, and analytics.
As a special project of the Governor’s Mass Big Data Initiative, this report seeks to provide an initial baseline understanding of the landscape of the Mass Big Data ecosystem and its challenges, opportunities, and strong potential for growth.
Through this work, we are pleased to report that the Mass Big Data ecosystem represents an extraordinarily fertile region for growth in data-driven enterprise and offers a unique combination of advantages on which to build the future of our data-rich world.
With strengths across the spectrum of big data industry sectors and in key supporting areas such as talent development, research, and innovation, our region is producing the people, businesses, and products that fuel the explosive growth in this expanding field.
We invite you to read the report, share it widely and consider how you can participate in and benefit from the expansion of the Mass Big Data ecosystem in the Commonwealth.
