Big Data and Analytics

Utah state government deals with many of society’s biggest problems. As the state’s population continues to grow, these challenges become more complex and the public expects government to respond to these issues as effectively as possible. State agencies have turned to data and analytics as a way to reduce cost and improve service delivery. Big data analytics is the next evolution in technology that businesses and government are utilizing to accomplish these objectives. Just as Utah invested in PC’s and networks in the 1980’s, in the Internet and Online Services in the 90’s and Digital and Open Government in the 2000’s, and in mobility in the last 7 years, an investment in big data and analytics technologies is prerequisite to remaining competitive in the next five years.
