Government Big Data Forum

Last year, analyzing Big Data sets was an emerging issue for many government agencies. Now that these organizations have had a chance to field Big Data solutions for over a year, this year’s forum will focus on lessons learned regarding the successful implementation of Big Data analysis for mission needs.

Join us for the second annual Government Big Data Forum in Washington, D.C. as government thought leaders and industry experts discuss best practices around Big Data technology, trends, and issues. We’ll focus on how to expedite getting and storing data, integrate information for analysis, enhance the ability to analyze large data sets, and address security concerns. We’ll also discuss a new role within government agencies, the Chief Data Officer, and how data scientists are playing an important part in organizational efficiency.
