Our Mission

To utilize “Big Data” to access the innovation economy in Virginia, for the purposes of job creation, increased productivity, greater economic growth and improved social welfare


What is Big Data?

High-volume, high-velocity, and/or high-variety information assets that require new forms of processing to enable enhanced decision making, insight discovery and process optimization (Gartner, 2012)




Big Data Ecosystem


Since there is no standard definition of big data nor a standard for classifying big data businesses for statistical purposes, our process for identifying big data assets throughout Virginia relies on a comprehensive keyword search of a number of websites, databases, Twitter and LinkedIn profiles based on terms associated with different components of the technology platform, analytical techniques, and major users of big data along what we refer to as the “Big Data Ecosystem”.
