Cutting Through Complexity to
Deliver Clarity for Actionable Insights
Data has become ubiquitous. It surrounds us in every step of our daily lives and permeates what were once mundane, uninteresting tasks. Whether in the private or the public sectors – data has changed how we engage, how we work, and how we think. Leveraging that data, harnessing it and putting it to work for the benefit of all is a key component to solving the myriad of challenges facing our states, localities and our country.
Gathering, collating, and leveraging that data does come at a cost. With increasingly profound and far-reaching cyber threats – governing your data continues to become more difficult, necessitating new and innovative approaches to ensure not only sound data governance, but thorough protection as well. Mitigating, managing – and where necessary – facing those risks head-on can allow your data governance program to thrive.
Public Sector Network’s Federal Data Insights virtual event will look to provide greater insights and accessible information that can help to reframe the challenges we face in information management and the adherence to legal & regulatory requirements. By gathering data management leaders, data experts, and cybersecurity thought-leaders, we hope to help you build a framework that supports an excellent data governance & protection program.

Data, Data Everywhere, but…
We are entering into a golden age of data insights for government agencies and government decision-makers – government officials can now derive actionable, meaningful insights much more quickly and accurately from their agencies’ data than ever before. We will hear some incredible stories today from our speakers & panelists highlighting some specific examples and outcomes. But the journey for government agencies is not an easy or smooth one, and it is just beginning. At its core, deriving actionable insights from data comes down to two foundational components:
- Organizing more and more data into a place and format that it CAN be analyzed.
- Improving the quality of analysis and insights being performed ON the data
While we are starting to make incredible strides on the second component, there is still a long way to go on the first component. A substantial portion of the overall data available to government agencies is either omitted (for multiple reasons); or is included, but maybe shouldn’t be. We will dive into both components during the event today, but we will begin by looking at the first component. Where does all your agencies data reside? And how do you access more of it?
Join our Chair, Wyn Elder, as he examines specific strategies and examples of how agencies can access more of their data for meaningful analysis and insights.
