On November 16, 2016 MeriTalk held its third annual Big Data Exchange Brainstorm as we explored the future for Big Data as an asset, not just a buzz word.

IoT – Unleash the Power of Big Data to Improve Government Outcomes

More than any other tech trend, IoT will fundamentally change our society — from healthcare to law enforcement to environmental protection to transportation to defense.  And, the implications for cyber security cut both ways.  More than a pipe dream, IoT’s already in action in government.  How are agencies deploying data normalization, analytics, and visualization to unlock new efficiencies and horizons?

Federal CIOs are largely aware of the huge impact IoT applications will have in the near future – but being able to see the storm isn’t the same as being prepared for when it hits.  It’s already happening in big ways at the local government level – “smart” cities putting the ever-increasing amount of data they collect to use to improve planning and provide better citizen services.   So what’s the strategy at the Federal level?  How can agencies overcome an aging IT infrastructure and persistent cyber threats to embrace the world soon to be delivered by the IoT?
