Data Democratization at Defrag
Merit says data democratization is about reaching the asses to allow information workers to organize, analyze and manipulate data on their own. He says there are three key trends to freeing up data. First, is cloud computing, where businesses host software services and deliver them to end users via the Web. But cloud computing is only useful if companies provide open APIs to allow access to that data, which is the second trend. Finally, Merit says usability is necessary to attractive a non-technical audience.
