A MeriTalk survey says agencies could cut 14 percent from the total federal budget by using big data for projects in areas such as transportation infrastructure, FCW reported Monday.

Frank Konkel writes MeriTalk surveyed 150 information technology executives for its “The Smarter Uncle Sam: The Big Data Forecast” report.

Total savings could reach $500 billion per year through the use of big data, the report says.

MeriTalk also identified military, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions and combating waste, fraud and abuse as another potential avenues for using big data.

Nearly a quarter of the respondents have launched at least one big data program over the past year, according to the report.
