Everything is Outcomes: Data Protection and Big Data

Everything is Outcomes Whitepaper726.81 KB

This is a whitepaper I put together as a way of assembling my thoughts for my lightning talk at EDW2014 in Austin Texas.

In it I discuss the application of a proven strategy for business innovation to the trick nugget of Data Privacy and Data Protection in a Big Data world. I make the argument that the disciplines of Data Governance and Information Quality (to name but two) are a key component of the value delivery system that is needed to deliver privacy as part of a bundle of other key resulting outcomes that must be offset against each other.

Only by moving from an internally driven (we can build it, they will come) or customer-requirement driven innovation culture can we hope to implement technologies and processing that serve to support rather than weaken our privacy.

In addition to my white paper, there is a report from the European Data Protection Supervisor on Privacy and Competiveness in Big Data which is extremely relevant to this topic.

Also I've written a chapter on this general topic in this book: http://www.igi-global.com/chapter/data-protection-and-bi/96162

Finally, here is an interesting article from KDNuggets.com from last week that gives another perspective on this topic.

Finally, here is the slide deck from the lightning talk at EDW14. Video is expected to be available shortly from www.dataversity.net
