Presentation Overview:

With explosion of data sources, there is a need to turn data into insights and create value. The value from big data does not come from the mass of data but from the insights that emerge from analysis of that data. These insights can help make better decisions, influence products and services, simplify operations and processes, and help governments deliver better citizen services. With reduced costs and better technologies at hand, government agencies can now leverage legacy systems and maintain system performance while ensuring data integrity and protecting sensitive information.
