The valley gets very excited about new technologies and applications. Adoption of technologies tends to be rapid in Silicon Valley based companies, especially startups. This is understandable considering that they can iterate faster and generally have the technical skills to emulate the trend-setters. Of late, the pace of innovation especially in the Big Data space has been so rapid, that sometimes it is necessary to hit the pause button. This is especially true for larger enterprises, both in Silicon Valley and elsewhere.
