This book demonstrates how your organization can improve service, reduce operating costs, improve workforce morale, and rebuild public confidence by using Web 2.0 technology to make information more transparent and readily available.

Written in non-technical language for CTOs, CIOs, progressive managers, and others interested in this process, Democratizing Data provides use-case scenarios and simple, low-cost strategies for using real-time structured data feeds and data visualization to help bring transparency to your company or institution. With this book, you'll learn how:

  • Real-time structured data can give workers the critical information they need, when they need it, to do their work more effectively
  • Providing real-time data feeds to the public can yield profitable new ideas while creating public trust
  • These approaches help facilitate a new style of management based less on command-and-control and more on facilitating collaboration and sharing
  • Visualization can break down barriers between programs and offices, and identify opportunities for collaboration as well as waste and overlap

Written by a consultant and disaster-recovery expert, this timely book will start you down the right path to bring data transparency to your enterprise.
