Data Marketplaces for your extended enterprise: Why Corporations Need These to Gain Value from Their Data

A session at Strata 2012

Thursday 1st March, 2012

2:20pm to 3:00pm (PST)

One of the most significant challenges faced by individuals and organizations is how to discover and collaborate with data within and across their organizations, which often stays trapped in application and organizational silos. We believe that internal data marketplaces or data hubs will emerge as a solution to this problem of how data scientists and other professionals can work together to in a friction-free manner on data inside corporations and between corporations and unleash significant value for all.

This session will cover this concept in two dimensions.

Piyush from Microsoft will walk through the concept of internal data markets – an IT managed solution that allows organizations to efficiently and securely discover, publish and collaborate on data from various sub-groups within an organization, and from partners and vendors across the extended organization

Francis, from ScraperWiki, will talk through stories of both how people have already used data hubs, and stories which give signs of what is to come. For example – how Australian activists use collaborative web scraping to gather a national picture of planning applications, and how Nike are releasing open corporate data to create disruptive innovation. There’ll be a section where the audience can briefly tell how they use the Internet to collaborate on working with data, and ends with a challenge to use open data as a weapon.
