Big Data Will Stymie Local Government -- InformationWeek

Big Data Will Stymie Local Government -- InformationWeek | Open data | Scoop.it

Despite the potential of big data analysis to improve governmental decision making, state and local IT pros have less than half of the computing resources and a third of the personnel they need to capitalize on the expected surge in data over the next four years.

The resulting gap and limited overall awareness about big data are among the reasons relatively few state and local agencies are taking steps to harness and analyze big data sets, according to a study by MeriTalk, a government IT networking group. The report, sponsored by NetApp, is based on a survey of 150 state and local CIOs and IT managers.

The survey found that state and local IT pros are struggling to keep up with data demands. Just 59% of state and local agencies are analyzing the data they collect and less than half are using it to make strategic decisions. State and local agencies estimate that they have just 46% of the data storage and access, 42% of the computing power, and 35% of the personnel they need to successfully leverage big data.
