What: The Data-Driven Public Sector Agency: A Roundtable Discussion with Cloudera, Paxata, and Tableau

When: Wednesday, July 22, 2015, 11am-12pm ET; 8am-9am PT

Target Audience: This complimentary webcast is ideal for analysts, data scientists, data developers, IT teams, and Chief Data Officers.

Agenda Details: Agency data modernization efforts and new initiatives such as those of the OpenGov Foundation and data.gov are already having a very positive impact on public sector agency missions. Agencies are now able to make Big Data and analytics the center of their missions: from fire risk assessment and 911 response analytics, to predicting homelessness, to correlating money laundering with terrorist activity. The panel will discuss:

  1. Real-world, public sector use cases for collecting, storing, preparing, and analyzing data
  2. Challenges of modernizing the information stack with legacy infrastructure, limited budgets, and non-technical analysts
  3. Practical, how-to advice for becoming a successful, information-driven organization
