September 27


State and local governments are inundated with unstructured data. According to Gartner, more than 80 percent of enterprise data is unstructured – and this number will likely rise government agencies leverage police body and dashboard cameras, surveillance video, data from Internet of Things sensors and more.

To interpret and extract value through this unstructured data in today’s digital economy is a big challenge. Like many other local governments, leaders in Prince George’s County, Md., struggled with effectively managing its rapidly growing data – especially as unstructured data flowed in from various sources and was stored in silos. Data Capital is about looking at new ways to unlock data trapped in silos and keep up with data growth.

Join Government Technology on September 27 at 11 a.m. pacific/2 p.m. eastern and hear Marc Seymour, systems admin for Prince George’s County, explain how the county found a way to unlock Data Capital to power Digital Transformation.

We’ll cover:
• Why disparate data storage is expensive, difficult to manage and hard to scale
• How to unlock Data Capital and overcome these challenges
• Why a scalable data infrastructure is critical for the future as it enables better analytics and security
