Let us move on from Grass Eating Sauropods and talk about who's who in the analytic space.
For every dime there are dozen analytic companies. Everybody who provides a freaking dashboard is an analytic company. Anybody that merely mentions Google, Facebook, Hadoop etc in the same sentence is somehow into BigData. Haven't you stumbled across company pages where they claim to be expert in analytics and big data but they want you to schedule a call with them. They don't have any products or solutions to show case yet they are Big Data/analytics folks.
So to make things easy, Mattermark released this highly curated list of 100 analytic companies. No offense to BigData, but small datasets like these are always juicy.
Mattermakr ranks each company using their own algorithm and calls it "Mattermark Score". After loading it up, we came up with these visualizations
For each funding stage, it shows the listing of companies by Mattermark score.
Some interesting questions
1. How many companies by funding stage?
2. What is the funding by location and stage?
We thought the above visual would tell us what kind of logic did Mattermark used to rank the companies. As suspected, apparently we cannot reverse engineer it without some additional information about the companies.
