That's hot!
Ashley England, UTS Library
Why: Push towards
eResearch and Big Data
Data Rock Stars
Nate Silver & Hans Rosling - telling stories
So data is hot ...
But the practical everyday stuff ... not so much
Data Management Planning,

not sexy,

but important.
* Connected Intelligence Strategy
* The code
* Funder requirements
What does Big Data mean for
you (the researcher people)?
What's in it for me?
* Efficiency
* Safety
* Quality
* Reputation
* Reproducibility
* Documenting your data
* File naming and organisation
* Data Authenticity
* Backing up
* Data privacy and security
* Archiving and file formats
* Ethics
* Sharing
“We have not been able to sort out the reason for this duplication. The files with the original data are not available any more, making it impossible to reconstruct a valid data set for reanalysis.”

Amazon file servers -> the patriot act
We can help you with:

* Data advice
* Finding Data
* Managing research data
* Depositing data in an archive
1 EB = 1, 000, 000, 000 gigabytes =
1, 000, 000 terabytes = 1000 petabytes
2012 – 2.5 exabytes of data were created
each day
Archiving and reusing your data
Reproducibility &
e.g. FG1_CONS_12Feb10
