Fremont, CA: The new resource is data. Technological developments and an ever-increasing quantity of data are changing how businesses and governments do business throughout industries. The rate of government digital archiving and data production is increasing, and Digital information grows in size and complexity. As a result, information management, storage, security, processing, and disposition have become more complicated. The state governments, the federal government, and the public sector are growing increasingly aware of the future benefits that big data may provide. Let's see some of the advantages of leveraging big data in governments.
• Improved transparency and cost reduction
Many government tax departments keep personal data and reproduce it across the public sector. Citizens constantly get compelled to fill out forms for the government to obtain data that it has. Pre-filled forms can assist in speeding up the execution while also eliminating inaccuracies in the data obtained.
When data is kept central, all government departments may easily access the data from a common pool. It also aids in the reduction of redundancies and ensures the use of only accurate data.
Governments that make their large data sets available to the public allow for sharing data, improved transparency, and increased citizen confidence.
• Quick and improved decision making
When developments and other Big Data insights are available, making organizational choices becomes easier and more efficient. It gets accomplished by employing streaming tools and other technologies to process the generated real-time data. If these tools aren't available, decision-making might devolve into guessing or complete avoidance of the process.
• Improved emergency response
Big Data analytics may be helpful to respond to dangerous natural catastrophes, detect health concerns, avert water scarcity, and organize tens of thousands of people who have got displaced. For example, in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, analytics got utilized to identify locations that required immediate assistance and improved resource allocation.
