Big Data and Analytics


The Big Data and Analytics agreement will be divided into two lots. 

Lot 1 will enable the provision of ‘build and run’ professional services related to the following data and analytics capabilities. ‘Build and run’ covers the creation, deployment and support of solutions.

  • data acquisition
  • reporting and dashboarding
  • analytics and cognitive solutions
  • data risking
  • search services

Lot 2 will offer commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software specifically for big data and analytics capabilities. This will include:

  • big data management
  • data mining (analysing large databases to generate new information)
  • machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • reporting and analytics
  • security and privacy

We anticipate that this will be a  2 year agreement with the possibility to extend by a further 2 years.

The scope and duration of this agreement are subject to change.
