About this talk
Fractured data makes it harder for governments to react and respond to emergencies and natural disasters. And poorly integrated systems can thwart the public sector’s ability to deliver services to the citizens who need them. Even on a day-to-day basis, governments are filled with silos, fiefdoms and legacy IT networks that make it impossible to share data effectively.
Integrating IT systems cuts costs, improves efficiency and can save lives. Whether it’s emergency medical teams coordinating their response to COVID-19, public health agencies tracking hotspots in the opioid crisis, or even justice departments connecting dozens of networks to ensure public safety, data integration can transform government.
