As part of 2012’s Big Data Research and Development Initiative, six major agencies committed funding “to greatly improve the tools and techniques needed to access, organize and glean discoveries from huge volumes of data.”

The Department of Defense (DoD) is one of the biggest investors, funding $250 million worth of big data projects each year.
