Why invest your time?

Government Specific

 

A dedicated forum, focusing specifically on the issues that face Data & Analytics Leaders in the Public Sector. Your challenges differ from those in the Private Sphere; this event allows you to deep dive into specific issues with other people in your position. 

Plus, now in our 7th year, we are the longest-running event of our type. We have a track record of providing an event worth your time out of the office! 

Intimate & Exclusive

 

Don't get lost in the crowds - we bring together 300+ leaders from across Government. Our limited size means we focus on quality attendees, not the quantity of them.

This approach means that you will meet the key people who you will actually benefit from talking to - Everyone you meet will matter, and everyone who matters you’ll meet!

Unique Formats 

 

Through a combination of keynote presentations, expert panel discussions, and interactive ‘self-help’ style roundtable discussion groups, we provide a forum in which to knowledge share, benchmark, network, and tackle the most timely challenges as well as identify strategies to overcome them.

Through this mix, so you will benefit from the collective wisdom of all in attendance.

Keynote Presentation -Re-thinking Data Analytics Platforms for Digital Transformation in Government

  • Digital transformation in Government requires a new approach to data analytics to address emerging challenges in the scale, complexity, and distribution of data, as well as for ensuring security and availability
  • But how do we balance those goals against the evergreen needs for cost efficiency and predictability? Neither legacy technology nor newer cloud options have all the answers, but solutions that combine the "enterprise values" of the former with the agility and elasticity of the latter may be the best answer
Christian Shrauder, Vice President of Federal, Yellowbrick

2:15 - 3:00 pm EST

  • Managing transformational change - What does digital transformation look like in the public sector context? What opportunities does it offer for greater efficiency and better service delivery?
  • How has Covid-19 accelerated government's digital transformation, what will be the legacy of the 'new normal', and what does this mean for the future of digital in public organizations?
  • Data Transformation as a foundation for Digital Transformation - becoming data-driven as a basis on which to transform your whole organization
  • Overcoming government's reliance on legacy systems and data siloes to ensure we are fit for the digital era

Panel Discussion: Making Every Tax Dollar Count - Delivering Value & Proving ROI Without a Profit Motive
