At the core of a happy, smart & data-driven government is its ability to communicate effectively with those it serves. This involves the art of listening, of including them in the decision making process, and in providing relevant information in such a way as to make it easily accessible, and simple to understand.
The target is to provide a trusted, reliable service, necessary legislation and the highest standard of business/living conditions to the jurisdiction it serves.
Open Data and m-Government are the foundations upon which tomorrow’s data-driven economy and 24/7 public service delivery models will be built. Leveraging and maximising on the opportunities these platforms provide will be the key differentiator between smart governments and their lesser counterparts.

The following topics will be covered in detail:
I have always found that Kumar and his team provide a conference experience that is of huge value to me and my organisation. Having attended all manner of conferences in the past, I find that what Peer Review offers is a genuinely fantastic event which is actually attended by key figures from my industry. These are people who write studies and papers I read, who have implemented business models I have imitated, and who generally are extremely important people to know. I admire the value ethic they have and I would happily endorse Peer Review events and workshops because unlike many others, I feel that these are the real deal.
I attended a Big Data event put on by Peer Review, and I can honestly say the insights and connections I made across the two days have benefited me immensely. Not only have we implemented a Big Data analytics system which is proving hugely beneficial to the way we deliver our services, we are also able to use the Peer Review Network to discuss our Big Data implementation with experts from around the world, most of whom we already met at the conference anyway. The fact they provide an on-going forum within their site so that as a group we can continue with the conversation long after the event, proves their forward-thinking approach, and it is this that I feel separates them from others attempting something similar.
We knew that Big Data was a topic that we really need to understand and get involved in to enhance our solutions, but we were far from experts in this field. What we wanted was a clear route to being able to process and analyse the data streams we had coming in. And what we really wanted was an expert to explain how to utilise the technology that was available in order to simplify this process. Thanks Peer Review for the workshop! I would recommend any business with access to data gets a place on a Peer Review workshop as soon as they can. Great insights, and great networking opportunities.
Having worked with Kumar a number of times previously, I understood his approach and ideas are like no other within the industry. It's great to see that such innovation and forward-thinking approaches are working so well in what I believe was an industry in need of a huge injection of credibility. Peer Review, for me, is a stamp of authority for a great, worthwhile event that will always attract the best in the industry because of their reputation.
“It was a professional event. I was very surprised by the quality and the diversity of knowledge, especially in the private and public sectors. We gained a lot of information and knowledge. Our objectives were absolutely met and I look forward to more events organised by Peer Review.”
“Very innovative! I very much liked the event, it really addresses the key pain points we face when it comes to putting policies and frame works for the projects. The event was well organised and the calibre of speakers and attendees was very high.”
“I’m amazed at the quality of the presenters and very importantly the use cases. I recommend that the summit by itself has a vision for a number of years to come so it innovates itself. An event not to be missed!”
"I am happily going to give a huge recommendation to anyone who is interested in Big Data and Analytics, to attend this event. The agenda was clean cut and the level of speakers was very high. A professionally organized event."
"I’ve witnessed the Kingdom Big Data and Analytics Summit having a very good agenda and a good balance between the public and private sectors. I would definitely recommend this event to others. The success of this and Peer Review’s previous events that we attended will certainly drive us to participate again. I congratulate Peer Review on its successful organization."
"I’m positively surprised by the amount of activity going on. My expectation of the event was to understand and know what’s going on in the Kingdom in relation to Big Data and Analytics, and they were definitely met. I would not only recommend this event to the industry but also recommend that Peer Review should organize this event more frequently. It was very well organsied and the turnout of interested people was very high. A very well organized event, very insightful and professional."
"Peer Review did an amazing job putting together the agenda, speakers and drawing attendees. I would recommend this event to anybody in the space of Big Data and Analytics given that it’s the leading event in the Saudi Arabian market and we are looking forward to participating in it again next year."
"The event was a comprehensive eye opener, it had a diversified audience and a good mixture of Government and business people. Peer review are the pioneers and the first comers to Big Data and Analytics in the Kingdome of Saudi Arabia. An ecstatic event."
"This is a great event! let’s look at the success of the event by assessing Day 1 – Positively overcrowded and Day 2 – still positively overcrowded! That’s surprising!"
"It was a very revealing and insightful event and an excellent opportunity to hear from multiple industries and different segments. Definitely a well thought out event!"
"I wanted to see a diversified community and it was wonderful to witness an eco-system where peers and partners came together to share and collaborate. I would definitely recommend the industry to keep an eye out for this event next year"
