Virtual Event:
Big Data & Actionable Insights

Leveraging data science to guide transformation in the public sector

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 (Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

Data is the new currency of the digital economy, and while the use of data is nothing new, the last decade has seen the rise of new tools and techniques, as well as new uses for data, that are changing the paradigm for public sector leaders starved for actionable intelligence.

We know that all levels of government collect an increasing amount of data every day – with this data becoming a critical asset for insight-led decision making – however it can be difficult to organize, manage, and extract actionable insights from increasingly large and diverse data sets. The efficient use of data is the missing link where true data insights can be leveraged to improve service delivery, national resilience, and citizen outcomes.

As our nation is faced with mounting crises ranging from COVID-19 to climate change, from societal injustice to economic injustice – actionable analytics can mean the difference between life and death.

While data literacy, culture, and data accuracy all pose challenges to glean actionable insights; privacy concerns are often seen as the biggest challenge presented by the rise of data and analytics – especially in an age of distributed workforce and unsecured home networks. Government departments and agencies must consider the type, and source of data, being collected, stored, analyzed, shared, and consumed.

Public Sector Network’s Big Data & Actionable Insights Virtual Event will help government thought leaders understand the evolving technology landscape, and garner peers’ perspectives on how best to leverage data analytics to manage data, mitigate risk, and derive true value from an increasing dependence on data.
