As always, we'll feature some new technology in our Elevator Pitch segment, where we ask companies to pitch us (as if we were in an elevator) and then face our judging committee. For this month's segment, we've got a couple of big data players: Kaggle and Clearstory, each with a unique approach to this incredibly interesting market. Finally, SugarSync, one of the early players in the personal cloud movement will talk about how they're evolving to take on fierce competitive forces.
