Oval Dialogue on Big Data and Good Governance

11th Feb 2015

The Oval Observer Foundation recently conducted a Dialogue on quantification of governance in India on the 4th of February, which touched upon the need to improve data collection and big data analytics to enhance public service delivery in India. The importance and benefits of big data analysis are widely acknowledged – transparency and accountability, participatory governance, faster decision making, predictive analysis, efficient delivery of services, better targeting of social programs, increased productivity and reduced administrative costs.

As a result, in recent years, there has been a significant push for open and public access to data all over the world, including in India.
