Recommendations to Government

  • The government needs to establish a strong, supportive foundation for big data, which means informing senior leadership of the technical needs and opportunities that come with big data.
  • Federal agencies need to implement formal standards for governance, provenance, and security. Standards are necessary to ensure data is traceable and clearly defined
  • Communication and collaboration are essential to share best practices within and beyond the government. Agencies that have experienced success need to share this knowledge.
  • Academia needs to develop programs and supplemental curricula to produce big data talent with skills in analysis, data mining, database management, and related skills.
  • Both academia and government organizations need to work to develop tools that can capture, store, and analyze big data.
