The data that will cater to the systems being created today and will shape several critical decisions can change the course of history. The government will not only enhance the efficiencies and generate savings for its people, but also find a whole new operational path that no one imagined before.
Data Science technologies have come up as the primary solutions thereby enabling the agencies to solidify vision, mission, effectiveness, combat waste, stretch workforce capacity, and deal with fraud and abuse. Furthermore, Data Analytics will assist the way governments operate in key areas like public health, law enforcement, acquisitions, military operations, as well as emergency responses. With a sharp growth in government mission requirements, federal agencies are looking for ways to maximize the use of huge data sets they gather and store.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly emerging as one of the most critical technologies for data capitalization; It’s a vital ingredient for digital transformation, that results in a data-driven enterprise.Capabilities Statement
