Abstract

Evolution and growth of data exclusively in Government sector should be an added advantage for the Government to increase the service delivery to the public. Big Data Analytics (BDA) is one of the most advanced technologies to analyse data owned by the Government to explore other fields, or new opportunities that can bring benefits to the Government. Although BDA concept has been implemented by many parties, there exists a number of misconceptions related to the concept from the aspect of understanding and implementation of the project. National Hydraulic Research Institute of Malaysia (NAHRIM) as one of the four agencies that have been implemented Malaysia’s BDA Proof-of-Concept (POC) initiative is no exception to these misconceptions. In this paper, we will discuss the misunderstandings and challenges faced throughout our BDA project, in encouraging and increasing the awareness of the implementation of BDA in Government sector.
