The table on the left describes the current and future state of Analytics as seen by the author. Having worked in a start up with mixed results in the "cloud based analytics marketplace/exchange" area, I fully see the potential for it. Even though the start up I was part of failed due of lack of funds but that was year 2010 and much has changed since then. I encourage my readers who might be looking for an idea for a new start up in the Analytics/Big Data space to give this table a good look. Other ideas mentioned are good as well and have potential.
