BDA Digital Government Lab

The Big Data Analytics Digital Government Lab (BDA-DGL) is an initiative resulting from a tripartite Memorandum of Understanding between MIMOS, the Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU), and the Multimedia Development Corporation (now Malaysian Digital Economy Corporation – MDeC), signed in January 2015. The lab harvests raw data into a Data Lake before conducting Data Cleansing, Data Harmonisation, Data Anonymisation, Security and Protection, Data Acceleration, Data Analytics, and Data Visualisation; all aimed at gaining insights out of the data collected by Government ministries and agencies as well as social media channels. All Big Data research and development activities in this lab are conducted in strict adherence to the Government’s data security, integrity and sovereignty guidelines.
