Benchmarking Deployment of Big Data and Analytics in Government
Adelaide O'Brien, Research Director, Government Digital Transformation Strategies, IDC Government
Session Summary: Often government decision makers do not know the key capabilities required to effectively draw insights from potentially large volumes of data, and the level of maturity their organization has regarding these capabilities. Research shows only 4.3% of respondents have operationalized Big Data and analytics across the organization with continuous coordinated process improvements and value realization (i.e. optimized maturity), and only 26.6% are operating at the enterprise level of having project, process, and program measurement influence investment decisions (i.e., managed maturity).
International Data Corporation (IDC) research shows that successful deployment depends on a multipronged approach guided by a strategy that accounts for not just technology but also talent and capital resources, business and IT processes, and the data.
