Methods and Practices: Data as a Service — The Evolving Opportunity for Commercial Fusion Centers Serving Government Clients
This IDC Government Insights report discusses the basic concept of data as a service and its long-term impact on fusion centers. Value-added data-as-a-service providers could be a significant growth area for government IT services in the years ahead, according to IDC Government Insights.
"As the size and scope of data continue to expand, we believe there is an evolving market for highly specialized IT services vendors that are able to accurately manage the large volumes of data collected by the government," said Research Director Shawn P. McCarthy. "This is particularly true as government fusion centers work to import an ever-increasing number of data sets. Trusted vendors can help develop data on third-party platforms that provide important taxonomy, classification, and master data management (MDM) functions. Trusted data service partners are an increasingly important part of the government fusion center ecosystem."
