DfE big plans for big data

An interesting debate erupted on EduGeekthis month after Graham Reed, a technologist, made a post on Eduware Consultingblogabout the changing data landscapeand how he saw Department of Education (DfE)data exchange and warehouse projects changing the way MIS work and the way they are used. Now of course we need to take it with a pinch of salt, firstly, this is very much early days. At the moment it’s a vision looking to become a project, and we all know how government projects end up post election time.
