Big Data companies: Infochimps Launches Enterprise Cloud For Big Data Analytics

I have previously published a post, ‘There’s A Metric for That’: How Big Data Impacts Biometrics Market and Industry, on the advantages and potentials of utilizing Big Data methods and tools in biometrics applications from a system and control center point of view.
