Great to see UK Government initiative to lead in the Digitial Economy..

I recently came across the Information Economy Strategy that the UK Government has launched.  This reinforces many of the points that I highlighted in the this blog. I would encourage anyone interested in this document to read the following two documents:

Interesting article titled “Data – A Raw Material to be Mined”

I just read a very interesting article from Steven Adler that is relevant to the discussion here. http://www.ibmbigdatahub.com/blog/data-raw-material-be-mined

As I discussed in the first Blog Post – data is the essence from valuable information can be derived. The process of turning that data into information can be in many forms and mining is one analogy that works well.  Ultimately this is about various type analysis..  More on this in future blogs. What are your thoughts about this article from Steven?
