Government Information And Analytics Summit 28 and 29 Nov 2012

By

The first annual Government Information and Analytics Summit will be held 28-29 November in DC, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

I’ll be speaking in a session on the government use of big data. With me at the session will be my friend and a great CTO, Gus Hunt of the CIA. We have an interesting and dynamic session planned, and if we are lucky we will be joined by folks from the office that won the 2012 Government Big Data Solutions Award (no promises on that yet, but we are working hard to make that happen).

I hope to see you at this event. We expect many of the great champions from the government IT ecosystem to be present as attendees and/or speakers.  And some of the greatest Big Data firms in America will be on the expo floor.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
