What is Google Data Liberation Front?
Google Data Liberation Front is a development team at Google Inc. designed to make it easier for users to part with Google products if they choose to stop using them. This applies to Google software that contains data that consumers may want to export to other software products. The goal of the data liberation front is to make this relatively easy for users.
Google customers can export their data into new software products through various platforms and software solutions, and Google Data Liberation Front offers their users simple steps that explain how to do this with each Google product. The Google Data Liberation Front believes that Google believes that customers should be able to opt out of Google products and still transfer their data to other products. This is different from other platforms that try to keep users by making it difficult or impossible for them to take their data with them if they decide to use another service.
The philosophy of Google Data Liberation Front is that Google software developers don't want to lock users into their products if they want to buy other solutions. In the past, Google software engineers believed that too many of their products forced users to stick with them for fear of losing data. With Google Data Liberation Front, end users can easily export their data to other brands. Technical solutions include migrating data files and synchronizing user access files, to name a few. The Google Data Liberation Front website provides instructions on how to escape from or to Google products.
Google products include AdWords, Google Calendar, Picasa Web Albums, Gmail, Google Storage for Developers, App Engine, Buzz, Google Analytics, Profiles, etc. In addition to exporting data from these and other Google products, the Google Data Liberation Front includes -Website also has information about importing data and even achieving a happy medium, as is the case with Google Sync Services, allows the end user to maintain contacts in their Google Contacts and export them to other types of software programs. Conversely, the Google Takeout platform allows users to escape from all Google products at the same time.
The Google Data Liberation Front was started by an in-house engineering IT team, taking its name from the 1979 film 'Monty Python's Life of Brian', in which a group of people from the film 'Judae's People's Front' do not have humor some can do everything - and tend to be very vocal in their differences of opinion. This reflected the Google development team at the time, so this name has both realistic and humorous implications.
