An InformationWeek Government Webcast:

Getting Started With Big Data

Untitled Document

Duration: 60 minutes

Government agencies generate, collect, and manage vast amounts of information, putting them on the leading edge of the Big Data trend. But merely storing all of that data isn’t enough—agencies must be able to act on it. The real advantage comes in analyzing Big Data and applying it in new ways that advance the agency’s mission.

Agencies must develop a strategy, and put the appropriate systems and processes into place, to fully exploit the Big Data opportunity. In this webcast, InformationWeek Government will help government IT professionals understand the steps required to support data volumes that are a thousand times bigger than yesterday’s databases, and to apply that data to improve government operations and offer new public services.

In this webcast, we will:

  • Assess the trends behind the surge in government data
  • Discuss tools and techniques for managing petabyte-size databases and gleaning discoveries from them
  • Identify opportunities for using big data to accomplish agency objectives
  • Learn about best practices in Big Data management from hands-on experts
  • Get an update on the White House’s Big Data Initiative
  • Explore the critical components of a successful Big Data strategy and discuss how to get started
