National Insights – Spring Edition

Event Overview

Cutting through Complexity to Deliver Clarity for Actionable Insights

Recently the public sector has become increasingly aware of the potential value that can be gained from leveraging data as a strategic asset. To deliver better cost optimization, improve services and over all sustainability, data leaders must address the knowledge and technological gaps. Bridging these gaps will help break down organization silos and pave the way for safe data sharing and collaboration.

However, the sector still struggles with effective methods to extract true value from insights, while maintaining privacy and security. With robust support structures, comprehensive frameworks and the right data strategy in place, public sector organizations will not only be more proactive, automated, and citizen focused, but also more data driven. How can data leaders elevate their data strategies to position data and analytics as a catalyst for further transformation?

Join your peers at the Data Management and Analytics Community’s National Insights – Spring Edition as we gather public sector data leaders to explore key strategies on how to leverage data effectively to boost efficiency, data literacy and augment data-driven decision making across organizations.
