Share Article

Amidst concerns of security and privacy, businesses and governments continue to develop new applications using the capabilities of data warehousing.

Multiple developments within the information technology market make the concept of data warehousing increasingly important to many modern computer applications. Cloud computing, ever more powerful and affordable computers and storage, and high-speed communications have birthed the era of "big data." Massive amounts of information on every aspect of our lives and environment are collected and stored in "data warehouses" for analysis and use in many new ways. Everything from buying habits to personal use of social media sites is now closely scrutinized.

This timely "Leading Edge" segment has Host Jimmy Johnson looking closely at what these new IT developments means to us as a nation and as individuals. The issues examined include incisive questions dealing with such issues as security of this data and the potential impact on personal privacy. With interviews and input from leading authorities in the field, this show will help viewers gain a better understanding of what data warehousing involves today and where technology is taking the concept. This is an important report for anyone concerned about the growing tendency towards extensive collection and use of detailed personal information.

Distributed directly to Public Television stations within the United States, and not through PBS, the Leading Edge Series explores timely and relevant issues.
