Digitization and digital transformation provides a shock for government to reconceptualize how it is organized to better optimize legal and regulatory responses to the use of data analytics to create value. Government is well situated for an organizational transformation that will allow it to better orchestrate coordinated responses where appropriate based on expertise of a dedicated centralized data analytics unit that will work across agencies. This is not to argue that each government agency should not develop its own data analytics expertise. Rather, there is some expertise that can be leveraged across different parts of government. This type of intervention requires a unique group to coordinate a response.
