AICTE Sponsored National Seminar on

Convergence of IoT, Big Data Analytics and Cloud Computing for Smart Governance

November 23-25, 2017

Mr. Balaji Ganesan

Title: Smart Compliance with IOT, Big data, and the Cloud.


The talk will present 3 use cases in governance, where the use of IOT, Big data analytics, and cloud computing, can help detect malpractices, and violations of laws.

1. Public Distribution System,

2. E-way bill system under the Goods and Services Tax regime, and

3. Enforcement of traffic regulations on roads.

These use cases help explain the opportunities to leverage Internet of Things (IOT) to capture data at real-time, and at scale. We then discuss how big data analytics over the cloud, can help detect anomalies at a much faster rate than that will be possible with human effort. Together, these technologies can help Governments achieve Compliance on regulations, without a lot of human effort, and cost.
