We’ve been collecting gigabytes and gigabytes of data for years. But are we doing anything about it?

The possibilities of big data in the public sector are endless. With every passing hour, the goldmine of government data expands as information systems, sensors and networks churn out enormous volumes of data. Faced with this information overload, it’s easy for analysis paralysis to set in. But it doesn’t have to. By simply leveraging an existing asset, governments can yield insights that create dramatic cost efficiencies, improve employee productivity and constituent services, and even save lives.

Mark Headd will be joining us for the live event, straight off the cover of our newest special report. Mark is the first ever Chief Data Officer for the City of Philadelphia, and a former director at Code for America. Always on the forefront of data-based innovation, Mark will lead us on a fascinating journey from Open Data to Big Data, with some intriguing stops in between.

Join us for the live, interactive webinar to help launch our newest research report from the Center for Digital Government and Public CIO. You will be able to:

  •     Ask important questions of our panelists from the City of Philadelphia and the Center for Digital Government
  •     Apply the lessons of Big Data to help your own jurisdiction meet challenging goals
