White House should heed lessons of reorgs past

Nearly every President since Richard Nixon tried to revamp how the government works in one way or another, and few have found any real success.

Big Data: Advancing the Art of Analytics

October 20th, 2010 at 11 AM

The application of knowledge discovery within the cloud is immensely powerful, but not inbuilt.

Organizations will continue to discuss and better understand the analytic power and economies of cloud computing, in the sense of data storage, sharing, and management; but we are quickly discovering that creating knowledge from data is more than just a discussion of technology. It's a discussion of what can be accomplished when massive data and cloud computing efficiencies combine to make advanced analysis and innovation possible.
