  • Ravi V.: While we are figuring ways to manage data at small scale, localized levels to get around IS/IT challenges within, the data and complexities grew now beyond scale - the Big Data. Cloud Computing in this context has only increased the assumptions and philosophies of security vulnerabilities and much work needed to be done to improve interoperability (both data and services), and possibly better defining what all this means to the consumer. While multibillion revenues are expected from the cloud and Big Data contexts alone, its not apparent how businesses get there without consensus on what this means to them. I would think a better coordination of businesses and higher educational systems should converge on both "timing" and value proposition to realize much of this growth potential. NSF I/UCRC programs are handy in this context and we encourage businesses to exploit this opportunity for their benefit.

  • Nancy A.: I couldn't agree more with you Robert. Security vulnerable, inaddition to all other aspect of data management, that include storing and retrieving is still a strong topic heavily discuss . For a small scale of data, it is easy; however, It is cumbersome and complicate when it come to the "large scale of the data" . All of which reminded me once upon the time, our beloved "main frame computers", and Amdahl, a wonderful company that I used to work for.

  • Robert L.: Since the dawn of computing, one challenge facing IS/IT has not change - Data management;
    From punch card era; what if you drop the big deck of card on the way back to your office from the machine room; todays Big Data for Knowledge Discovery and data mining.
