MITRE/ATARC Big Data White Paper

MITRE-ATARC Big Data Collaboration Symposium, December 8, 2015


Four Big Data topic areas

  • Data Governance
  • Data Integration and Management
  • Architecting Systems for Big Data
  • Data Science and Scientists

Key Recommendations to Government

  • Standardized metadata for big data provenance is necessary in order to easily provide information to interested users
  • Integrating historical data could lead to possible misuse due to the incomplete understanding of the legacy of that data.
  • Big data architecture for operational systems in the federal domain must be responsive to business goals and mission objectives above all else.
  • Senior leadership must understand that a “data scientist” may not be simply an individual position, but an interdisciplinary combination or team of personnel.
