Public sector agencies struggle to unlock the value of their data due to outdated legacy systems and limited analytics capabilities – being data-rich but insight poor. And they often grapple with the associated, yet unnecessary, challenges of big data – high costs, poor data quality, and inconsistent data sources and formats – without experiencing any of the enticing benefits. Gaining a 360-degree view of citizens, society and operations is possible – by integrating all appropriate data and taking advantage of analytic tools.
