Which makes me think of one I kind of like:

    "Unleash your data"

or, dramatically, 

     "Unleash the data"

(which I read as paralleling, "unleash the dogs".)

Maybe just:

=>    Data unleashed.

*shrug*

The cool thing about the word "unleash" is that, unlike "free" and
"open" and such, it has the strong connotation that what's being made
available is powerful.   But maybe it goes too far, with some sense that
the thing is dangerous.  (which if course, it is.)
