re: Big Data Will Stymie Local Government
I'm not surprised that local and state government IT pros say their organizations don't have all the pieces in place to take advantage of big data. That's also true for many businesses, by the way. The key thing, as noted in the NASCIO report and recommendations, is that agencies have an IT architecture, policies, and plan in place to successfully execute big data initiatives. Ramping up system and storage capacity is the easy part.

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.
