Data in Action: Improving the Business of Government

Dun & Bradstreet

Data is the cause of - and solution to - many of the challenges agencies face today.There's more of it than ever before, and likewise there is more potential to capitalize on it. Getting a grip on the data you have requires technology, proper policies and the right people, strategically positioned to collect, analyze and act upon data-driven insights. Data, used in conjunction with analytics and other emerging technologies, stands to provide agencies with today's highest-impact opportunity to advance mission-critical objectives. For some, this means reorganizing traditional bureaucracies around the data they collect, making data a strategic pillar to build around. For other agencies, it means bringing in new talent, ideas, and strategies to operationalize data with creative, mission-centric methods.
