  2. 2. Our government management approachesare under duressA new Performance andProductivity Model• Recognizes that information isabundant, open and largelynon-proprietary and usable• Commoditization and SharedServices has driven IT to aservice utility construct versuscapital investment andownership• Efficiency gains are derived fromhighly repeatable, scalable,error-free and fast end-to-endprocesses• Performance breakthroughs aredriven by insights from groupsynthesis, problem-solving, anddiverse perspectivesA new Performance andProductivity Model• Recognizes that information isabundant, open and largelynon-proprietary and usable• Commoditization and SharedServices has driven IT to aservice utility construct versuscapital investment andownership• Efficiency gains are derived fromhighly repeatable, scalable,error-free and fast end-to-endprocesses• Performance breakthroughs aredriven by insights from groupsynthesis, problem-solving, anddiverse perspectives2• 20th century management structuresare hierarchies, constrained byparochial information andorganization silos locked-in by client-server software• Data is everywhere, yet there is somuch conflicting or inconsistentinformation that multi-week data callshave become the norm forresponding to leaders’ questions
  3. 3. Concurrently, a wave of Big Data is hitting us3• Worldwide information volume isgrowing at a minimum rate of 59%annually— Gartner• Worldwide information stored volumeis at least doubling each year.— EMC• 70% to 85% of data is "unstructured."— Gartner• 87% of performance issues in applicationdatabases are related in some way todata growth.— OAUG• Data storage costs are 3 to 10 timesthe cost of procurement.— IBM
  4. 4. The Industrial Revolution of data is indeed here“Data is the flint forfor the next 25 years.”Ray OzzieChief Software ArchitectMicrosoftIssues: - Data duplication & redundancy- As much as 80% not used- It’s scattered everywhere withno information architectureVolume of digital informationincreases tenfold every 5 years90% of the world’s datahas been created in thelast two years!$600US buys a disc drive that stores all theworld’s recorded music!4
  5. 5. Add a third ingredient: data analytics(which is not new to government)• Citizen relationship mgmt• Security (event data)• Logistics/supply chain• Web analyses• Budget/strategic planning• Procurement/spend mgmt• Citizen contact centers• Banking/finance regulation• Energy/grid management• Intelligence• Homeland Security• Cyber security• Science (energy, weather)• Defense• NASA• Fraud (tax, assistance)• Law enforcement• Transportation planning5
  6. 6. So, what is different today?New Technologies• In-memory analytics and databasemanagement• Visualization-based data discovery• Content analytics• Search-based data discovery• Information semantic services• Collaborative decision-makingCoupled with low cost, commodity-basedcloud computing, scale and scope arepossible unlike prior periodsVolumeVelocityVarietyNew Demands and Uses• The push for greatertransparency andaccountability ingovernment is acceleratingtake-up of analytics toprovide context,visualization, and analysesof impact and results.• Improving decision makingvia predictive analysis,trend analysis and scenarioevaluation, identifyassociations and sequentialpatterns, potential impact ofnew policy or operationalchanges, and can beinfluential in gainingdecisional/resource supportfor new mission activities.OPEN AND MACHINE READABLETHE NEW DEFAULTFOR GOVERNMENTINFORMATIONOPEN DATA POLICY
