The last part of the 20th century stood witness to the irreversible process of interlinking of countries due to the opening up of economies and further procedural liberalization. The advent of 21st century has seen the convergence of global efforts to speed up the
developmental process across countries with programs like MDGs and the ongoing SDGs, which have become more people centric, integrated, universal and indivisible in nature. The programs on a global scale, require herculean effort for policy detailing, efficiency of
execution, monitoring capability, placing an adequate feedback mechanism, and timely corrective action. The capability of the system to deal with such humongous data subsequent to the generation, manipulation, correction, restoration, and storage of the data, requires much more than the traditionally used system by the governments. It is a very interesting coincidence that the 21st century has also paved the way for the most revolutionary technology till date, the ‘Big Data Analytics’ or Big Data. Technology has always been known to provide the administration with the requisite tools and techniques. It is a genuine contemplation that the evolution of the dynamic, revolutionary and unprecedented technology can reap huge benefits in the attainment of the Agenda 2030. It is a promising combination since the Sustainable Development Goals, as envisaged in the Agenda 2030, requires a highly transparent, dynamic, flexible, real time, fast, and pro-active mechanism to cater to the multitude of global problems. The present descriptive study, using the secondary data sources, aims at understanding the role of Big Data in adequate response to the Sustainable Development Goals as envisioned by the global apex organization – the United Nations
