TYSONS CORNER, VA, December 23, 2019 — Shaun Bierweiler, vice president and general manager of public sector business at Cloudera, said agencies should develop a data strategy that is independent from providers in order to sustain ownership over information, ExecutiveBiz reported Dec. 11.
He wrote in an opinion piece for Federal Times published Dec. 5 that establishing a separate plan could help agencies avoid the risks of vendor lock-in and complications related to processes and architectures.
"A standalone data strategy, developed independent of providers, cements an agency’s control of its own data indefinitely and provides flexibility, portability and consistency. Most importantly, this independent data strategy provides choices: in vendors, in collaboration and in all the different uses and types of data possible now and in the future."
