Government Challenge

U.S. federal agencies are facing substantial challenges managing and maximizing the massive amounts of data being collected due to policies and regulation. This raw data can become more valuable through the use of analytics and has the potential to transform every aspect of the Federal Government. The unprecedented variety and volume of data now available provides an exceptional opportunity to drive better decision-making around policies and programs, improve operational efficiency, and mitigate enterprise risk.

In addition to mission-specific data, the government is tasked with providing transparency into its own spending and grant programs to its constituents and citizens in a consistent way. Many agencies haven’t yet developed approaches and tools to aggregate financial and administrative data for transparency purposes.

Getting value from all of this new data takes the right combination of in-depth federal knowledge, big data transformation know-how, and advanced analytics capabilities.
