BIG DATA TOWN HALL
Big data is critical to operations in both government, and the private sector. The utility of data analytics will continue to grow exponentially. With that growth comes an increasing demand for talent to maintain security, business vitality, and responsiveness.
The talent shortage is prevalent far beyond the IT sector, as every sector struggles with increasing demand in this area.
This Town Hall will convene industry leaders to talk about specific shortage areas, share promising practices, and suggest next steps in partnerships that could be responsive to building interest and skills in the world of data utilization and analytics.
