Govt. unveils centre for data analytics

It will also enable self-service analytics

With a view to fast-tracking the adoption of data analytics in the government to improve delivery of services to citizens, Electronics and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Friday unveiled a Centre of Excellence for Data Analytics (CEDA).

The centre would help build analytic solutions that are specific to a particular problem which may relate to a single or a combination of departments, an official statement said.

It added that the centre would also provide data profiling tools and techniques along with necessary expertise to analyse the data for quality issues.

Improve data collection

“While data cleaning shall be done for making the data ready for analytical use, recommendations shall also be given in order to help the department take necessary actions to further improve their data collection process,” it said.

Besides creating the analytics solutions for the government departments, CEDA would also focus on training and enabling the departments to do self-service analytics.
