The implementation of Big Data architectures has proven to be very useful in the management of companies and global corporations, allowing a greater profitability and shorter investment returns, due to the power of processing and the use of analysis algorithms. However, in the public sector, its development still has a long way to go. This paper provides a public governance perspective which is managed by data based on Big Data platforms, achieving a better orientation of public policies with a holistic focus, turning public agencies into creative and innovative entities that provide not only goods and services, but also, provide relevant knowledge of their respective sectors, obtained as a result of their integration and interactions with other public entities, constituting Big Data as a necessary state capacity that governments should strengthen. Thus, the definition of the components of the proposed architecture is shown, whose main orientation is to ensure that the state policies proposed by governments have an impact on quality of life of its citizens.
