The Government Big Data Forum has been gathering every year for three years now to discuss how to leverage Big Data for government mission impact. We dive deep into lessons learned, share issues/challenges, receive demos from hot technology firms and network with fellow practitioners in a day-long forum.
This year we are so excited about this event because of the terrific people who have signed up. We have attendees from across the federal government (all three branches!) and that should make for a terrific discussion. We have invited some of the most experienced practitioners and leaders of the community to address and interact with the group, including:
Deputy CIO and Chief Technology Officer
US Department of Commerce
Kirit Amin was named the U.S. Department of Commerce, Deputy Chief Information Officer and Chief Technology Officer, in November 2012.
Assistant Director of Information Technology and Chief Information Officer
Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board
Shawn Kingsberry is the Assistant Director of Technology and the Chief Information Officer for the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board.
Executive Director, Information Sharing Environment
Office of the CIO, Department of Homeland Security
Donna Roy joined the DHS in December of 2006 and currently serves as the CIO’s Executive for Information Sharing.
Plus stalwarts of the community from: NGA, NSA, CIA, and the US Army.
And we have hand selected speakers from some of the greatest technology firms in the big data/analysis/sensemaking community including:
Cloudera, MarkLogic, Thetus, Datameer, IBM (Analyst Notebook), EMC, SAP, Recorded Future, Splunk, 10Gen, FlexAnalytics, Parabal, Optensity, VMware, Arista, VirtualInstruments, Qbase, Nutanix and Symantec
