Data is a strategic asset, and it is everywhere, so generating it is not the challenge. The challenge is how to derive value from the data to make more informed, insightful decisions.

The amount of data that government agencies collect, store, analyze, share, and secure is increasing exponentially and will continue as more activities are carried out online and in digitally connected spaces. No matter your mission, as a government agency, data is your biggest asset but can also be your biggest challenge.
