Half the solution...
Big Data holds the promise of delivering more efficient, effective government services. By developing solid, reliable insights, one can craft effective solutions to vexing problems. 

But there is the potential that the Federal government could "self-hobble" its own solutions. Convuluted, byzantine acquisition rules make it difficult for Uncle Same to develop and deliver "Big IT". Obamacare is just the latest nightmare illustrating this common problem. 

Anything the federal government does will have a political dimension. Do a big project badly and you will generate needless opposition, creating a process problem where none need be while a real problem goes unsolved.
