5th International Conference on Big Data for Official Statistics

April 29-May 3, 2019 | Rwanda

The United Nations Global Working Group (GWG) on Big Data for Official Statistics was created under the UN Statistical Commission in 2014. The GWG provides strategic vision, direction and the coordination of a global programme on the use of new data sources and new technologies, which is essential for national statistical systems to remain relevant in a fast-moving data landscape. Big Data could fill gaps, make statistical operations more cost effective, enable the replacement of surveys and provide more granularities in outputs e.g. in support of the monitoring of the SDG goal of ‘leaving no one behind’. The GWG built the UN Global Platform as a collaborative environment to work together as a global statistical community and to learn together sharing knowledge, data and methods for all countries in the world.

Around the world today, many organizations are looking at how they can deploy big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to learn more about their operations, their customers, and new opportunities. Yet not every organization is confident that it understands the emerging technologies available for big data and IoT well enough to choose the right platform and deploy it successfully in a new initiative. ESG interviewed consulting services and systems integrator (SI) Capgemini to see how they approach this challenge, for themselves and as a foundation for a new offering for their large enterprise customers. The goal for one specific offer in Europe was to understand which issues were of most importance in both the business proposition and the technology, and how they validated the capabilities of the options available to them.
