In the last six months, big data has taken big leaps in the federal government, from the Office of Management and Budget’s Digital Government Strategy to the Office of Science and Technology Policy's push for Open Data Initiatives. These announcements should come as no surprise as the federal arena works to overcome the challenges created by big data. But with recent developments focusing primarily on policy, what technologies are being used to advance big data processes, including the collection, storage, analysis and dissemination of massive amounts of structured and unstructured data? Join AFCEA Bethesda for its December breakfast focusing on how federal agencies are leveraging big data technology to meet their mission needs.

Join AFCEA Bethesda on December 13, 2012 at the Bethesda North Marriott and Conference Center as a panel of agency leaders discusses the major technologies used to help manage the use of big data to improve government operations.
Panelists will discuss:
  • Big data core technologies being used for collection, storage, analysis and dissemination
  • Growing challenges for big data in government and industry
  • The consideration for cloud computing in big data
  • Research and development opportunities in big data technologies
  • How to understand source data and applications
  • How do agencies improve cross-organizational information sharing for broader connected intelligence
According to Deltek research, Federal government demand for big data solutions is growing. By 2017, spending levels are expected to steadily increase from $4.9 billion to approximately $7.2 billion. Download Deltek’s free report summary, or register for the free webinar on December 18th to explore the factors influencing federal big data spending.
