Many organizations think that digital transformation means radically reshaping the way they use technology. In some cases, that’s true! But, the primary goal of digital transformation is simply to make your data a force for intelligent decision-making across your enterprise. How you manage your data is at the core of digital transformation.

In our session, “The Importance of Data in the Digital Age,” we will discuss advanced analytics, artificial intelligence and how to manage data effectively, so that agencies have the data quality they need to make the most informed decisions and achieve their mission goals.

Please join this session to hear from the industry’s leading experts in cyber security and data analysis to understand how you can create true data-driven digital transformation within your agency and achieve your mission goals. The session includes an opening keynote discussion from General Keith Alexander, former Director of the National Security Agency and Commanding General of U.S. Cyber Command. Following General Alexander’s remarks, the session includes an in-depth panel discussion with our moderator and panelists.

General Alexander’s opening remarks will address the latest threats to our government and IT Infrastructure. In the panel discussion, Mr. Dickson of IDC and General Alexander will share their observations on how Government agencies are addressing these threats as well as trends and best practices in leveraging the cloud. Facilitating this discussion will be Dr. Greg Gardner, who has over 30 years experience in the military and Intelligence Community before joining NetApp’s US Public Sector Team.
