Data generated by people, machines and other connected things is expected to reach 850 zettabytes by next year. To make the most of all that information, government needs a sound data strategy – a deliberate, well-conceived set of policies to make data available to end users safely and securely across the full spectrum of hardware implementations, both on-prem and in multiple cloud environments.

Join our experts May 6 at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET for a special 30-minute Lunch and Learn webinar to explore how to build a strong data strategy that allows you to control, analyze and experiment with data wherever it lives. We’ll discuss:

• Why an enterprise data strategy is crucial in a rapidly changing government technology landscape
• How a modern data architecture promotes data-driven insight across the entire lifecycle of agency data
• How a solid data strategy forms the foundation for data security and governance critical for regulatory compliance and data privacy
• Which characteristics you need from a data platform to deliver this all across infrastructure form factors
