SVA Consulting professional Paul Dausman is featured in a guest column for the Milwaukee Business Journal with his article titled “Use Free and Open Data to Improve Your Business”.
Business today involves utilizing large data sets to teach computers to recognize and predict events given the past events detailed in those data sets. This is how Amazon knows what customers might be interested in buying. But how do businesses become as smart as Amazon without having access to the same large data sets? One potential solution is to tap the vast amounts of data produced by Local, State, and Federal governments. Also, many nonprofits make data available to the public as part of their mission of addressing specific problems in society. These sources can help fill in the blanks in business data.
