Big Data and Analytics can greatly enhance the reach and efficacy of ongoing ICT projects for various government initiatives towards e-governance. While initiatives like Open Government have been striving to improve public service transparency, civic participation and inter departmental collaboration, Big Data can enhance these services to the people and help acquire critical data and information from the people. Since 2012, both EU and the US are seeking ways, through legislative and policy changes, to remove obstacles in the use of big data which promise greater effectiveness with lower costs in the public sector. At Applied Analytics we provide a suite of offerings in the applications for Government and Civic bodies. We customise offerings from our Accredited Partners to provide you the most optimum solution for your domain. This ensures that your organisation is able to leverage on time tested technologies from marquee technology providers and for your specific needs. Applied Analytics takes has a flexible engagement structure involving:

  • Customises Solutions Architecture
  • Solutions Engineering
  • DevOps
  • Data preparation and Monitoring

A few representative use cases in Governance services:

Augmenting E-governance

E-governance practice under various government and government sponsored bodies can be significantly augmented using Big Data Analytics. An or ground assessment of the impact of egovernance over time is a challenging task that involves huge budgets and time. Council staff are simply not adequate for exercise of these proportions on a periodic basis. It involves tera bytes of data (some in near real time) that needs to be processed and shared with multiple stakeholders and citizen groups. Big Data Infrastructure can enable the seamless data capture processing and orchestration of objective insights derived from the data.

Crowdsourcing Council Inspection

Citizens can report and provide information to local governments about all sorts of civic issues, from potholes to graffiti, fly tipping, broken pavements or street lights. People can do so anonymously or by identification, they can upload photos, and pin them on a street map. An analytics engine continuously tracks and analyse these through automated Text and Image Analytics tools and brings about a correlation between local council civic programmes and on ground status. It also helps trigger notifications to appropriate departments and allows tracking of progress on the issue online.

Transition from Mega Cities to Smart Cities

Since 2011, more people live in cities than in rural areas for the first time in human history. Megacities i.e. cities larger than 10 million people, are an emerging phenomenon. According to the UN, the number of megacities will have grown from five in 1975 to 26, with 24 of them located in the developing world - Megacities are not a local or national issue, it has global ramifications. The effective governance of Megacities is no longer possible through local area technologies. Teh knowledgebase and intelligence required out of megacity infrastructure has grown maniforld as they need to access real time information, national and international data storage and needs to acquire data from large number of diverse sources. This is how SmartCities technologies are evolving that utilise the 3Vs of Big Data to achieve its objectives.
