Enhancing Government Services Through Advanced Analytics
Data is all around us, and it is becoming increasingly hard to abstract relevant insights from our data that lead to intelligent action.
With this in mind, we invite you to join us for this can't-miss Meetup where you will hear about the advanced analytics capabilities, and see how raw data is transformed into actionable insight used to save lives.
One use case we'll discuss is the recent White House “call to action” around traffic fatalities. During this highly interactive and demonstration-focused session, we will discuss the challenge presented and walk through the solution built.
As always, there will be great networking opportunities along with food and beverages. This event is open to the public and there is no cost to attend. Check out the agenda below and spread the word to your colleagues and connections about this Azure Gov DC Meetup!
