At KME (a DC SEO Company and Digital Technology Agency), we cover a lot of
ground among client types, industry segments and technology services, with a
heavy emphasis on area DC SEO business requirements for online, interactive
marketing and advertising. As a local or regional small business near
Washington DC, including Northern Virginia, Suburban and Southern Maryland,
there's an almost bewildering array of online marketing services, tools,
channels and opportunities to sift through - plenty to buy, try and use, but
not nearly enough time and expertise to properly leverage. Plus, the online
research or purchasing habits of your constantly changing customer segments
(and their technologies) are really hard to keep up with - whether for
marketing or simple communications purposes.
Our insight comes from many places, though primarily from the experiences of

With the proliferation of Internet-based tools and forums to share

The Agency Deputy CIO (DCIO), Enterprise Architect (EA), IT System/Security
Manager (ITSM) and the Open Data Community Evangelist (ODCE) – Over
The DCIO & ITSM at a table, talking about the annual IT budget status. The
ODCE drifts over, recognizes the ITSM from a recent agency newsletter.
ODCE – "Can I sit here? I wanted to talk to you about opening up data,

ODCE.io., plus there will be an announcement soon on Sharepoint."

The title of this article is quite a mouthful, and three very complex and
broadly-scoped disciplines mashed together. But that's what's happening all

manipulating information that's managed to leak through the risk-adverse,
highly-regulated mantle of the government's secure data cocoon, and instantly
sharing it for further rendering, visualization or actual, productive use.
Mostly a "pull" style information flow, at best constrained or abstracted by
