Data Management & Analytics
National Insights – Fall Edition

Thursday, September 29 2022 | 12pm – 2:00pm ET • 9am – 11:00am PT | Online

Event Overview

Enhancing Data-Driven and AI Capabilities and Services Post-Pandemic

The Canadian government, departments and agencies have always managed and stored vast amounts of data. The recent pandemic has forced the public sector to think and act differently than ever before; to tap underused data sources and leverage AI to provide solutions to unique and time-sensitive challenges. In hindsight, the pandemic has provided a framework for broadening the use of technology and data to improve the lives of Canadian citizens.

It is becoming increasingly apparent that the benefits of unlocking big data, employing data analytics, and fully embracing the advantages of AI has potential to vastly increase productivity and drive citizen-centric outcomes. With this comes new challenges around data governance, security and privacy.

The fall edition of Data Management & Analytics National Insights will take a deep-dive into key strategies for implementing AI and data-driven services to improve the efficiency and deliverability of public while ensuring the privacy and security also remain top of the agenda.
