I guess to do the same thing here it would need to be trough a university . I can't see our government doing it and a pravte company would always be suspect.

@Seth    It sure is.   One thing that strikes me is the issue of privacy. Even with Centralized Institutions sharing data, the issue of privacy is paramount in Europe. Why such a distinction ? Why are  Americans not more concerned with Privacy ?   Is it implied ?  

Surly no one thinks that is the case but of course there are many who still hold this outdated mode of thinking.

So what is it ? Am I missing something ?

@Pierre   Agreed.  I know if I were considering an analytics tool, the cost would be a major concern.  This is probably the stance of most SMB's and even the enterprise would be foolish to waste resources on "test bed" scenarios,  that are more exploratory in nature than anything else.  

Open source ( as you well know ) provides a basically free means of experimenting and coming to a better understanding of just what Analytics brings to the table.

@tomsg    Great point.   I was thinking the same thing.  Why don't we have a centralized structure here in the U.S. ?     I am sure American Business will blame it on Free enterprise and Capitalism.  

Well Germany seems to be able to do it while still adhering to Free Enterprise and Capitalism.

It would be clear that that idea is probably going to work well expecially as industry as pointed out may be lead more and more by "business-oriented end-users who want far more autonomy than in the past," and the challenge to meet their unique needs.

I would think a cetralized resource such as this would be a real competitive advantage for German companies- especially the small one. The US could learn something from this approach.

It's interesting to see the differences between the U.S. and Germany is trends.  For example companies in Germany are hesitant to go into the cloud while here in the U.S. it's often leap before you leap.

Good mention of the open sources tools like R. 

It's interesting that the discussion about deploying agile business intelligence is also raised. Many of the latest tools are incroporating open sources solution as well.  Sometimes open sources adds a new dimension in organizational task that an enterprise faces.  Just ask GE, which is now positioning itself as a 125 year old start up because of the IoT revolution, which is powered by...wait for it...open source. ;-)

When we hear the words Ďbig dataí, we tend to think of vast databases, complex algorithms and endless links between mountains of information. Interestingly, however, big data is also suitable for art, and vice versa.
