Enterprise executives, both government and commercial, face a complex world and a global economy that is in trouble. In this environment they want the ability to plan, decide, solve problems, make sense, and predict with greater speed and confidence. Being able to access and leverage data is central to this ability.

While much attention is given to improving infrastructure for processing data and communicating globally, insufficient attention is given to improving the data itself: quality, characteristics, exchange, and management and security.

This seminar addresses how strategic focus can be given to data and will lead executives and their enterprises to more precise solutions and optimized performance. It explores the underpinning for optimizing enterprise performance and more effective information technology using smart data concepts.

The Smart Data concept:

  • is a response to consumer, constituent, or investor-driven demand for higher enterprise performance by using quality data to manage more effectively
  • makes data smart through data engineering
  • makes enterprises more resilient by adopting smart data strategy
  • makes infrastructure more responsive by employing smart data
    technology in an enterprise context
  • Major societal trends are at work that are catalyzing the national imperative for a better approach to information and data
  • A deep and global economic crisis with restructuring of information-dependent sectors
  • Advancing network-centric information paradigms such as SOA,
    Virtualization, Cloud Computing, Social Media, and Semantic Web
  • Emerging national policies and initiatives that are information
    dependent such as healthcare reform, climate change, energy self-sufficiency and alternative fuels


The purpose of this seminar is to introduce the concepts of smart data and to systematically address emerging information technology trends. The seminar is intended to impart to attendees current resilience and agility thinking in the context of enterprise performance optimization for both government and business. Attendees will depart with an understanding of approaches to harnessing the latent power of information in ways that expand enterprise capabilities.
