Cutting Through Complexity to Deliver Clarity for
Governments recognize data’s potential to serve citizens according to their needs. Demand for data and relevant insights has never been higher.
Not all departments and agencies, however, are capturing the same data points or even the same types of data. Consequently, public sector data professionals spend an inordinate amount of time on manual collation and manipulation that could be automated, preventing key analyses from being completed and potentially overlooking valuable insights.
How can government data professionals enable communication between disparate datasets – without devoting resources to manual manipulation? What best practices exist that reallocate resources away from simply making sense of what’s being collected – and toward resources that analyze and unlock valuable information?
Public Sector Network’s Government Data Insights Summer Edition virtual event will bring together public sector data professionals across all levels of government from across the country to discuss a range of top-of-mind topics in data management and analytics. Join your peers in conversation!

Using Your Own Data to Maximize Benefits to your Community
Have you ever wondered how to analyze if your plans will have the impact on your community that you hope they’ll have? How can you measure intangible things the environment and tie it to tangible things like your budget?
Join this session to learn how one local government leveraged data that it already had to quantify the environmental benefits of converting its vehicle fleet to alternative fuels against the increased cost of purchasing these vehicles. The results might not be what you’d expect!
Developing Common Data Models
Data users are developing creative solutions to drastically reduce the amount of time analysts spend making sense of the information and enable practitioners to do their work. Common data models automate vital processes, mapping previously siloed data into formats where comparison makes sense. This panel will provide key takeaways for creating common data models in your department.
