Virtual Event: Big Data & Actionable Insights

Leveraging data science to guide transformation in the public sector

Tuesday, November 10, 2020 (Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

Collecting data is one thing. Realizing the ROI and making effective use of it is another. With an increasing amount of data being gathered by the public sector every day, understanding how to best leverage it is critical if it is to be used for insight-led decision making.

As government agencies strive for meaningful digital transformation, it’s important not only to collect and store large data sets, but also to use that data when making mission-critical decisions. This growing use of so-called “big data” builds mounting pressure on government to leverage data and transform it into actionable insights. Efficient use of data is the missing link between good governance and capacity building, where insights can be gleaned to improve service delivery.

With this rise of big data comes privacy concerns, meaning government must also consider the type and source of data being collected, stored, analyzed, shared and consumed.

The Public Sector Network’s “Big Data & Actionable Analytics” Virtual Event will provide the platform for government thought leaders to understand their evolving technology landscape and how best to leverage insights to improve their operations and service.
