A recent survey conducted by Capgemini and the Economist Intelligence Unit raises questions on how “data-driven” enterprises truly are. The study shows that organizations are struggling with the enormous volumes of data, which is often poor quality and siloed within the organization. Corporations and executives need to understand that just collecting and storing big data doesn’t drive a cent of value to an organization’s bottom line. 

 One sector that is taking Big Data to its potential is the U.S. Government. The government’s recent $200 million big data investment, one of the largest public technology investments in recent history, aims to make the most out of Big Data to provide advancements in sectors including security, healthcare, education, environment and the sciences. Already, the government’s big data initiative is helping the army do real time analysis of intelligence, in order to save soldiers' lives, and addressing electronic postage analysis, saving money in fraud detection.

The federal government may have found answers for enterprises struggling to make sense of their data. The government’s forward-thinking approach can teach the global enterprise community:

  • How to hire skilled workforces for the future of IT
  • How to buy the right technology for their companies now and the future
  • How to deploy a Big Data environment in the data center
