U.S.-based data and analytics company Teradata said it is collaborating with the Rajasthan government to help it improve delivery of citizen services. These include planning and tracking various welfare schemes to detect detecting financial fraud. It said Rajasthan is creating a common data and analytics platform for all government departments across the State to collate and utilise data more effectively and efficiently.

“With this project, we aim to create a robust backbone for data and analytics in the State of Rajasthan,” said Rajesh Shewani, head of technology and solution architecture, Teradata India. The government in Rajasthan has created ‘Big Data Environment project’ to build a State level integrated data platform that will become a common source of structured and unstructured information. It would mine hidden insights, patterns and unknown correlations from large chunks of data.

“Implementation of big data analytics solutions will empower government departmental users with improved analytical insights,” said Arun Chauhan, Additional Director, Department of IT and Communication, Government of Rajasthan, in a statement.

The Dayton, Ohio-based Teradata said some of these insights would help detect financial fraud and plan and track various welfare schemes to ensure that benefits reach only eligible citizens. It would also help to identify and eliminate duplicates as well as ‘ghost’ beneficiaries. The other applications include performing analysis of unstructured information in the grievance portal to determine the root cause of the complaints. The firm said it will also set up a research platform to leverage data science capabilities.
