Fractured data makes it harder for governments to react and respond to emergencies and natural disasters. And poorly integrated systems can thwart the public sector’s ability to deliver services to the citizens who need them. Even on a day-to-day basis, governments are filled with silos, fiefdoms and legacy IT networks that make it impossible to share data effectively.

Integrating IT systems cuts costs, improves efficiency and can save lives. Whether it’s emergency medical teams coordinating their response to COVID-19, public health agencies tracking hotspots in the opioid crisis, or even justice departments connecting dozens of networks to ensure public safety, data integration can transform government.

Join us on April 23 at 11 am PT/2 pm ET for a webinar discussion on the biggest challenges governments face on data integration – and which solutions can help.

You’ll hear from industry experts as well as public-sector practitioners on:

  • How a holistic approach to data management can make it easier for departments to share data internally as well as across agency lines
  • The right policies and data-sharing agreements you need in place to enable better data sharing
  • The best tech infrastructure for your agency’s own specific needs
  • On-the-ground examples of how state and local agencies improved efficiency and service delivery through better data-sharing
