Thanks to its constant strategies for big data development, southwest China's Guizhou province has witnessed continuous results in promoting the application of big data in government administration as well as commercial and civilian use in recent years. 

The province is seen as providing a good model for other Chinese provincies in moving from late starter to a leader of big data development.

As one of the first national big data comprehensive pilot areas in China, Guizhou is committed to creating a suitable environment for further development, and Guiyang, the provincial capital, recently successfully staged the China International Big Data Industry Expo 2019 (aka the 2019 Big Data Expo), the fourth straight year it has done so. 

A number of famous domestic and foreign science and technology companies have established branches in the city, so that Guiyang, becoming known as the "data valley" of China, has become a wind vane for global big data development. 

Early in 2013, the Guizhou Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China and the provincial government jointly took on the task to develop a big data industry. According to Xu Hao, executive vice-mayor of Guiyang, the province is richly endowed by nature for developing big data, such as lower power consumption, clean air and cheap electricity. 

Through its efforts in big data development, Guizhou's resource advantages have been transformed into industrial advantages. 

Big data helps improve government administration capability

Since Guizhou initiated efforts for the collection and connection of data, it has actively facilitated public access to government data by accelerating the building of platforms for data sharing, intensifying horizontal integration and management of data, and enhancing data exchange among the government departments. 

In 2016, Guizhou-Cloud data sharing and exchange platform officially went into service. In turn, the platform, which links the various cities of Guizhou province, set up sub-platforms for collecting data including demographic information, health care and targeted poverty alleviation. 

In 2017, the platform was connected to China's national data sharing and exchange platform as the first linkage of its kind, basically forming a system that connects central government departments, government departments at various levels of Guizhou, and government agencies.
