The Korean government is implementing new plans that will realize its new vision for the creative industries and which will achieve “Government 3.0.”

These efforts center around the opening of public data in a way to create more jobs and new industries. This will provide support for those who plan to launch start-up businesses based on this government-collected data. The central government currently makes as many as 3,395 different types of data available to the public. On October 31, it announced its plans to publicly release a total of 9,470 types of data by 2017.

To do this, the government is using what’s called “Big Data.” 

Big data is a collection of data sets. It often refers to the technology used to “read” those data sets, technology that can efficiently process large quantities of complex data. This would have been difficult to process using traditional database management tools. The concept also includes data produced in real time through online platforms such as social networking services (SNS) and global positioning systems (GPS). In many countries, the analysis of big data has been well-recognized for its effectiveness and efficiency. A number of corporations, including Google and Amazon, have already been providing researchers and developers with big data platforms through which they can collect, store, manage and analyze data.
