The government, in partnership with the recently formed Information Economy Council, has just published its Data Capability Strategy, which outlines how the opportunities in open/big data might be utilised for the benefit of all.
Titled ‘Seizing the Data Opportunity’, the strategy begins with the premise that the increasing significance of data is ‘one of the greatest opportunities and challenges facing policymakers today.’ It cites figures by the Centre for Economics and Business Research which estimates that the big data marketplace could create 58,000 new jobs in the UK between 2012 and 2017.
