Government agencies across the spectrum are sitting on invaluable datasets that are locked up, usually because of lack of resources, tools and compliance regimes.

Fortunately, cloud-based analytics capabilities are allowing these datasets to be turned into knowledge. Whether it’s data about the agency mission, citizen services or simply data from running large data centers, analytics can help these agencies visualize, analyze and optimize. Last night’s AzureGovMeetup showed attendees exactly how.

First up, Chandra Sekar of  Microsoft Azure Government spoke about Microsoft’s Advancements in Big Data and Predictive Analytics for Government.

Next up, a timely use case presentation from Bob Allen, Owner of Chainbridge Technologies on Applying Analytics to Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery Missions: 

And finally, AIS’s own Cloud Infrastructure Specialist Jason Fertig (@PlateSpinner) spoke about Azure OMS and Log Analytics for Better Operational Intelligence.

Don’t miss October’s Meetup on the 18th — it’s going to have another rockstar lineup of industry experts discussing the Intersection of Cybersecurity & Digital Transformation for Government. RSVP right here today! We’ll see you there!
