Governments worldwide have heaps and heaps of data that is accumulated every minute across different domains - transport, traffic, public safety, weather, utilities, urban development et al. This data is growing at a rapid rate as Governments launch new services and attempt to drive more inclusiveness for the existing services. At the same time, Government agencies have been guilty of working in silos and having very limited cross-agency visibility and coordination. This observation magnifies itself in the Emerging markets. In most cases, it is the citizen who bears the brunt due to an absolute lack of citizen-centricity. This presentation was delivered at Open Group Conference as an attempt to provide guidance on how governments can adopt a transformation journey that drives value generation from the data that has always been there.
