June 30: Getting Gov the Right Data Skills

Register for free now:

How is your agency upgrading its data capabilities?


Back in the 1960s, the space race between the United State and the USSR paved the way for previously unheard of upskilling, technological innovation, inspiration and dedication. Now there’s a new frontier in the race for technological superiority: data. However, data without analytics, automation and the technical know-how is just numbers on a page.

Agencies need new approaches. One way to create that is to upskill your data workforce.

Upskilling demonstrates a commitment to people, builds an inclusive culture, and attracts and retains talent — all of which drive sustainable performance improvement and accelerates digital transformation.

Join us and your public sector peers for an online event Wednesday, June 30 from 12-1:30 p.m. ET/9-10:30 a.m. PT where you'll learn how governments can successfully manage the extreme influx of data, automate processes, and reskill employees to do higher-value work.

You'll hear more about the biggest pain points associated with the new data frontier and how agencies are tackling them to stay on track.
