Strategic Use of Analytics in Government
In recent years, breakthroughs in data-capturing technologies, data standards, data storage, and modeling and optimization sciences have created opportunities for large-scale analytics programs. Several organizations in the private sector have not only leveraged fact-based decision making, but also created sustained competitive advantage from data-based analytics. They have built their business strategies - at least in part - around their analytical capabilities. While government organizations and agencies don't necessarily compete with one another, they use analytics to enable and drive their strategies and performance in an ever more volatile and turbulent environment.
