Searching Big Data for ‘Digital Smoke Signals’ – NYTimes.com.

Excellent Article how the Public Sector is transforming by the private sector.  Good read.  Article frames out the group structure, and the team, but doesn’t go into the output of the statistics, i.e. group output, which is disappointing.  Gives you the sense the team is new, and is still coming to grips with what to output, whom to present it, and the advantages presented and opportunities taken as a result of the data. It could be this new, dynamic group within the United Nations is still trying to integrate with the rest of the organization, they are still wresting with the data, or the data draws dangerous conclusions that are not for public distribution.  Give the article a run through, and you will see the subtext is predicting world economies, and that is confidential to the people being analyzed, and also to the people who invest.
