Government Transformation in a Hyper Networked Economy

Innovation Day 2:

Harnessing Big Data to improve Government insights in a Hyperconnected World

In today’s hyper-connected and digitized world Big Data and Analytics are held in high regard by agencies worldwide, but implementing government programs remains challenging.

Big data is a big topic among government agencies around the world: Some 81 percent of top managers responding to a 2013 global survey by Bloomberg BusinessWeek Research Services (BBRS) strongly agree that “big data” is crucial to meeting their mission. Experts concur that the public sector will inevitably be transformed by analytics and big data. For example, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reduced the rate of food stamp fraud by 60 percent using data analytics that quickly identify merchants who traffic them illegally.

Join us on 12 March 2015 at Mohammed bin Rashid School of Government - Conventions Tower to discuss how to:

  • Meet rising demand for better government services, budgetary restraint, public safety, and accountability
  • Rapidly connect people, data, and processes to better understand your business and drive informed decision making.
  • Put predictive analytics into the hands of business users and data scientists with automated predictive modeling – allowing them to build models within minutes or hours.
  • Execute better on your strategy through increased organizational alignment, agile planning and analysis, optimized profitability, and a more efficient and compliant close to disclose
  • Take a proactive, unified approach to managing Governance, Risk & Compliance – to reduce cost and effort, better prevent risk, and elevate performance
