RessourcesIntelligenceEconomique – RessourcesRenseignement
Ce long article paru dans Web Active Magazine, un journal en ligne anglais donne la parole à RobertSteele, ancien de la CIA (semble t’il), CEO de la société OSS, inventeur et promoteur infatigable du concept de renseignement de sources ouvertes (OSINT).
RSS: « The Rich Site Summary technology has enormous promise, and it is virtually unknown outside a relatively small group of experts such as my colleagues at the other OSS (Reston, Virginia). »
OSINT: Steele draws some clear distinctions about open source information. « It is important to understand that intelligence is about answers and supporting decisions or actions, it is not about secrets, » he stated.[…]
« We are starting to explore ways to share intelligence. The idea is that partners cooperate to create what I call ‘information coalitions’ which can be either persistent or ad hoc.[…]
« This is a promising avenue that blends shared services, classified and open source information, and XML and standards-compliant database technology. »
Software: « The software industry is not ready for prime time yet. Most software companies follow the model of arcane constructs where less than 20 per cent of the functionality can be used by any normal person, » he said.
« Software needs to be intuitive and learnable on the fly, and it has to come with robust data capture. Most software today requires that the end-user enter the data.
Management: « Elitist top-down secretive hierarchies are going to be overthrown by multicultural collaborative teams inspired and organised from the bottom up. The long view will defeat the short view, and openness will defeat secrecy. »
