How to Make Sense of Your Agency’s Data: Move from Data Collection to Analytics . Year Developed: 2018. Source: GovLoop. Presenter(s): Jack London. Type: Video. Level: Intermediate. Length: 10 minutes.

Annotation: With a growing population, an increase in connected devices and the rapid pace of technological development, agencies are now collecting more data than ever before. Not to mention, the sprawl of government information systems and technologies means that agencies are also generating significant amounts of information. All that data can be extremely valuable to the way government achieves mission goals. But to reap that value, agencies must be able to do more than collect it; they must be able to analyze it. In this course, we examine the barriers that many agencies face in bridging the gap between collection and analytics. We also identify the three critical tasks that agencies must achieve to glean insights from their data. Finally, we examine how data analytics can have real impact on the operations of government agencies. The course comprises an overview, 3 lessons, a knowledge check, and a post-course survey.

Data Analytics Fundamentals: Learn to Use Your Data. Year Developed: 2016. Source: GovLoop. Presenter(s): n.a.. Type: Video. Level: Introductory. Length: 30 minutes.

Annotation: Data is powerful. We can use it to shape policies; craft citizen services; and even secure government. But it takes more than data alone to drive better decision-making and ultimately better outcomes. We also need the right tools to combine that data and search for patterns, anomalies and trends that otherwise would go undetected. The course explores how to turn your data into insights, explains what data analytics is, how it’s different from big data, and – most importantly – how it can impact government operations and citizen services. Then, it discusses how to get the most out of your data by walking through some common challenges to data success and then matching those challenges to cultural and technical solutions. To help us with some of the technical lingo, we also hear from expert, Melissa Fields, Solutions Architect at ClearShark – an industry leader in providing customized, integrated and managed IT solutions to government. The course comprises an overview, 6 lessons,2 interactive segments, and a post-course survey.
