Is there a way for "big data" to be widely shared within a company?

mstrauss

There is so much information gathered, if it is sequestered and only used for specific approved projects by a few people in a few departments, there must be many uses for data that are being ignored. If it can be opened up to wider access in a basically unstructured manner, I can't help but think that currently unimagined uses will be found and integrated into daily operations. How can this openness be achieved?
