As we prepare for GovLoop’s State and Local Tech Trends Virtual Training, we are posting blogs about many of the sessions and some of the tips and best practices our experts will share. The virtual training is October 21st from 11AM-3PM ET and free for everyone — make sure to register here!
In today’s big data environment, state and local governments must decide how to combine, store, search, and analyze the data that they have access to. With the concept of big data often being overused and misunderstood, it can be difficult to know how to maximize data potential and make it available on a variety of platforms like as mobile devices.
But GovLoop is here to help. Join us for an online training during the State and Local Tech Trends Virtual Summit to understand how to make the most of the data that you already have, while making it transparently accessible. This online training will:
- Present lessons learned from real-life big data deployments in both the public and private sectors.
- Introduce new generation technologies and approaches that can help your government cost-effectively manage your data.
- Leverage data in new ways to improve organizational effectiveness and service quality.
Our expert panel will feature the state of Colorado’s Chief Data Officer, Michelle Gore, and MarkLogic’s Senior Sales Engineer of SLED, Phillip Paz. They’ll break down the barriers that are keeping your government from utilizing and sharing available data. The training will assist in giving your agency an advantage in understanding the data available in the spreadsheets, emails, reports, social media, video, sensor feeds, and more that have changed the definition of “big data” in recent years.
With so many factors pressuring the need data-driven decisions like limited budgets, an increasingly demanding public, and the need for top-quality data governance and security, it is more important than ever for your government to stay ahead of the game and provide the best service possible. By making your data work for you, that goal is more than achievable.
