Federal agencies operating throughout the world face a variety of unique challenges in assembling, integrating and using data securely to make decisions in real-time.
In a recent FedScoop panel discussion, Chief Data Officer Thomas Sasala highlights some of the capabilities the U.S. Department of Navy is developing to modernize how the Navy processes and moves large data sets globally.
Adding perspective to the government’s global data modernization efforts are Mitchell Skiles, senior architect, federal at Palantir and Chris Ritter, principal systems engineer for Dell Technologies. The three executives discuss how agencies can reduce some of their challenges around connectivity and data integration and why distributed data capabilities are increasingly important to operationalizing data.
The discussion touches on several key issues facing federal IT leaders:
Understanding the challenge of assembling and operationalizing data for better decision-making:
Developing a strategy to use data for timely decision-making:
Using emerging technology to reduce connectivity and data integration challenges and improve interoperability of data across systems:
