Analyzing and managing big data provides an enormous opportunity to gain critical insight from new and developing sources of data. How your agency defines its data strategy and approach will make a critical difference in your ability to effectively manage your data. The challenges facing agencies with capturing big data analytics arise with curating data, searching through vast amounts of data, storing data, and keeping sensitive data secure and private. By properly analyzing big data, agencies can reduce improper payments with effective fraud protection strategies. State and local entities can take advantage of big data’s ability to help with Smart Grid Metering’s regulatory requirements of storing data for seven years and properly analyzing that data.
