Watch Now

Studies show government response to COVID-19 was significantly enhanced where there were prior investments in data. Now, as government organizations face restricted budgets, data can become a critical tool for finding operational efficiencies and identifying areas with the greatest need.

Join Government Technology and Infor on May 25 at 11:00am PT/2:00pm ET as we discuss why new federal stimulus funds mean now is the time for government organizations to elevate and expand data operations and invest in modern, cloud-based tools that increase transparency, drive efficiencies, and reduce the need for complex IT patch work or upgrades.

We’ll explore:

  • The power of data in pandemic recovery efforts, whether it’s a move to digital payables and receivables, enabling more nimble tracking of people and the work they are doing, or developing more transparent operations
  • How to use data analytics to identify revenue not collected, recoup payments made in error, and eliminate waste, fraud and abuse so you can make the most of the budget you have
  • Case study examples of organizations that accelerated the move to modern financial, HR, and reporting tools during the pandemic to compensate for operating budget reductions, and how you can too
