Advanced analytics is proving to be a game-changing technology for government.
Across the board, agencies are looking to big data and other advanced analytic methodologies to provide a quantum leap in their abilities to manage operations and achieve their missions.
The “Federal Big Data Research and Development Strategic Plan,” released in May 2016, envisions a “big data innovation ecosystem in which the ability to analyze, extract information, and make decisions…based upon large, diverse, and real-time datasets enables new capabilities for federal agencies and the nation at large.”
But advanced analytics is not just something of the future. Nearly a dozen agencies either have appointed a chief data officer or are actively recruiting. And they are beginning to make big data investments a priority: Market researcher Deltek forecasts demand for vendor-provided core big data solutions will increase from $1.6 billion in 2015 to $3.2 billion in 2020.
Much of the recent work is focused on mission-oriented applications—from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reducing the time it takes to identify the outbreak of an infection disease to NOAA and NASA supporting disaster response operations with real-time data and analysis.
Register now for this event, featuring thought-leaders from across the federal government who will discuss how agencies can build their capabilities to take advantage of recent developments in advanced analytic tools and methodologies.
