Great article. The amount of data currently hidden from public view represents a economic stimulus package of its own if it can be made available.

re: Unlocking Big Government Data: Whose Job Is It?
This! Terrific article!

The idea of private enterprise learning to leverage big data from government in new and innovative ways seems like a potential budding industry to me. The level of science, research and information/data that is freely available from the government if you just know where to get it could be used to produce services on the same level as Google Maps.

But we'd never get those services and products if we waited on government to provide it. Jonathan Feldman is right.

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
