Now more than ever, federal CIOs can leverage business intelligence (BI) and advanced analytics to simplify data management, unlock valuable insights, and use these insights to improve operations across their agencies.
Advanced analytics allows CIOs to connect available data to their agency’s larger mission. Sophisticated tools and techniques enable CIOs to simultaneously extend the capabilities and influence of their departments, and make strategic, data-driven recommendations to other leaders regarding government initiatives.
And with open access to data and analysis, employees across all departments – including citizen developers – are empowered to contribute to the mission through data-driven strategies.
Gartner’s Top Seven Priorities for U.S. Federal CIOs suggests the following key actions for leveraging BI & advanced analytics
- Confirm and clarify specific decision making and algorithmic needs that are mission-critical, and frame those opportunities in business and mission outcome terms.
- Assess current data governance issues that will impact operational risk or the quality of analytics recommendations, and escalate to agency leadership
- Develop an information strategy the simplifies the data environment, supports open data, empowers citizen developers and delivers mission-differentiating capabilities.
