FAIRFAX, Va., April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Salient Federal Solutions, Inc. (Salient). Federal agencies are increasingly aware of the potential mission value of advanced analytics. A growing number of agencies express a sense of urgency to launch or expand advanced analytics initiatives that will enable them to predict and mitigate mission risks. But the widespread adoption of advanced analytics strategies and rate of progress to date has been slow and sporadic. In some cases, the agencies are not sure how to get started. Others have started, but are struggling to scale initial successes to the enterprise level and use the full potential of advanced analytics for broad mission advantage. This seminar offers federal agency participants a chance to learn from advanced analytics experts how to overcome these challenges. It provides practical instruction to help agencies transition from simply reporting what happened yesterday to predicting and planning for what will happen tomorrow -- quickly and affordably.
The seminar will be held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on April 20, 8:00 AM -- 1:30 PM (EDT). The target participants are federal agency personnel who perform key roles in advanced analytics initiatives, including CIOs, VPs, and directors of IT, business executives and managers, Business Intelligence (BI) directors and managers, data and business analysts and managers and data analytics practitioners. Industry experts from Salient Federal Solutions' Data Analytics Center of Excellence and Robin Bloor, Chief Researcher of The Bloor Group, will discuss proven approaches and technologies essential to advanced analytics success.
Seminar participants will learn how to use advanced analytics to predict and mitigate mission risks, such as fraud and security breaches, and to inform decisions and actions resulting in improved services to citizens. They will also learn how to make analytics accessible to everyone and simple to integrate with existing systems and decisions processes.
"Advanced analytics enable organizations to predict and proactively address current and future risks and challenges," says Ms. Walker, VP of Salient's Data Analytics Center of Excellence. "Salient is committed to helping federal agencies exploit the full potential of advanced analytics to enhance mission performance. It is vital to reinforce their sense of urgency, while also empowering them with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful."
