Big data maturity models for the public sector: a review of state and organizational level models

Yavuz, Nilay
Purpose Despite several big data maturity models developed for businesses, assessment of big data maturity in the public sector is an under-explored yet important area. Accordingly, the purpose of this study is to identify the big data maturity models developed specifically for the public sector and evaluate two major big data maturity models in that respect: one at the state level and the other at the organizational level. Design/methodology/approach A literature search is conducted using Web of Science and Google Scholar to determine big data maturity models explicitly addressing big data adoption by governments, and then two major models are identified and compared: Klievinket al.'s Big Data maturity model and Kuraeva's Big Data maturity model. Findings While Klievinket al.'s model is designed to evaluate Big Data maturity at the organizational level, Kuraeva's model is appropriate for assessments at the state level. The first model sheds light on the micro-level factors considering the specific data collection routines and requirements of the public organizations, whereas the second one provides a general framework in terms of the conditions necessary for government's big data maturity such as legislative framework and national policy dimensions (strategic plans and actions). Originality/value This study contributes to the literature by identifying and evaluating the models specifically designed to assess big data maturity in the public sector. Based on the review, it provides insights about the development of integrated models to evaluate big data maturity in the public sector.


EPICS: A Framework for Enforcing Security Policies in Composite Web Services

With advances in cloud computing and the emergence of service marketplaces, the popularity of composite services marks a paradigm shift from single-domain monolithic systems to cross-domain distributed services, which raises important privacy and security concerns. Access control becomes a challenge in such systems because authentication, authorization and data disclosure may take place across endpoints that are not known to clients. The clients lack options for specifying policies to control the sharing of...
Dynamic information handling in continuous time Boolean Network model of gene interactions
Öktem, Hakan (Elsevier BV, 2008-08-01)
Growing information and knowledge on gene regulatory networks, which are typical hybrid systems, has led a significant interest in modeling those networks. An important direction of gene network modeling is studying the abstract network models to understand the behavior of a class of systems. Boolean Networks has emerged as an important model class on this direction. Limitations of traditional Boolean Networks led the researchers to propose several generalizations. In this work, one such class, the Continuo...
IFOOD: An intelligent fuzzy object-oriented database architecture
Koyuncu, M; Yazıcı, Adnan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2003-09-01)
Next generation information system applications require powerful and intelligent information management that necessitates an efficient interaction between database and knowledge base technologies. It is also important for these applications to incorporate uncertainty in data objects, in integrity constraints, and/or in application. In this study, we propose an intelligent object-oriented database architecture, IFOOD, which permits the flexible modeling and querying of complex data and knowledge including un...

Exponential growth in data volume originating from Internet of Things sources and information services drives the industry to develop new models and distributed tools to handle big data. In order to achieve strategic advantages, effective use of these tools and integrating results to their business processes are critical for enterprises. While there is an abundance of tools available in the market, they are underutilized by organizations due to their complexities. Deployment and usage of big data analysis t...
Open-Source Big Data Analytics Architecture for Businesses
Gökalp, Mert Onuralp; Koçyiğit, Altan; Eren, Pekin Erhan (null; 2020-01-23)
Unaware of existing big data technologies, organizations fail to develop a big data capability despite its disruptive impact on today's competitive business environment. To determine the shortcomings and strengths of developing a big data architecture with open-source tools from technical and managerial perspectives, this study (1) systematically reviews the available open-source big data technologies to present a comprehensive picture, and (2) proposes an open-source architecture for businesses to take as ...
