National Insights – Summer Edition

Thursday, June 23 2022 | 12pm – 2:15pm ET • 9am – 11:15am PT | Online

Event Overview

Fostering your Digital Transformation Success with the Right Data Foundation

Public sector organizations are experiencing a rapid growth in the need for data to provide improved and integrated services. From passive collection of data, to leveraging data as a strategic resource in decision-making, recent times have only highlighted the pivotal role that data plays in fueling digital strategies and citizen services. Considering that this trend will continue through 2022 and beyond, data leaders must be prepared to face complex challenges associated with data sharing, building capacity, decentralization, collaboration and more. We can, however, even the odds a little with the right strategy, tools, and skills.

This quarter, we will delve deeper into elements such as effective governance, open data sharing, collaboration and data visualization tools that can help further data outcomes and improve decision-making. As organizations move forward with their digital and data transformation efforts, public sector leaders must be equipped with a solid foundation to harness the power of data in a secure, responsible, and ethical manner.

Join your peers at the next Data Management and Analytics Community’s National Insights – Summer Edition as we gather to share, learn, and collaborate more on practical approaches and data solutions that can help co-create a data-driven public sector.
