Today’s government leaders often find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place — between disruptive mission and business challenges on the one hand, and an explosion in the sheer Volume, Variety & Velocity of data on the other.  They find themselves constrained by traditional information management and analytics systems that limit their ability to harness, cross correlate, and analyze data, ultimately producing actionable insight in a timely manner. Faced with the phenomenon that is Big Data, many have reached a tipping point where they know they need to transform.   The good news is that many have both recognized the challenge and have embraced the value that Cognitive Analytics can provide in engaging the citizenry in new ways, uncovering formerly hidden insights, and creating entirely new ways of optimizing the mission – and from this we now know that the transformation looks like.

This best practices, experience based discussion will:

  • Describe the common mission analytics challenges government mission and business leaders face,
  • Define the Cognitive Analytics era, and describe the opportunity it creates
  • Examine more than a dozen case studies in which leaders have taken steps to seize the opportunity.
  • Review the recurring keys lessons learned and best practices for getting started.   
  • Explain how next generation analytics lays the foundation for building the cognitive enterprise.
