The Promise of Big Data
The explosive growth in data requires the ability to capture, store and transform data into meaningful information. New applications can be deployed, shared services launched, data storage added and capacity expanded – in real time – dynamically and efficiently.
A government agency or department’s internal data means little without the potential to move, store, sort or join it. Sophisticated computational and statistical methods today can manage massive data sets to find previously undetected patterns, enabling agencies to transform citizen services.
