Data-driven innovation represents an enormous opportunity for government agencies to become more efficient and effective. Using data and analytics, agencies can make smarter decisions, deliver higher-value services, and increase their productivity. In addition, the data revolution is unlocking new possibilities for government agencies to create economic opportunities through collaborations with the private sector. For example, as a recent report issued by the U.S. Commerce Department showed, their bureaus have released data sets that have created billions of dollars in economic value and have helped entrepreneurs identify new markets, evaluate their competition, and make hiring decisions.
Collaborating across government agencies and the private sector is no simple task, but it is a necessary one if the promises of big data are to be realized. Join the Center for Data Innovation for a conversation with experts from government, industry, and civil society, about how policymakers should help guide the coming wave of data-driven innovation.
