Deepak Kundal, chief data officer with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), will give a Fireside Chat at Potomac Officers Club’s The Power of Data Virtual Forum on Wednesday, June 10th. Register here for POC’s The Power of Data Virtual Forum.
Kundal is responsible for NGA’s overall data strategy, multi-fabric data platforms and storage capabilities. He leads the technical analysis of data sources to determine the optimal implementation approach, including parsing and Federal compliance regulation for Title 13 data.
Effective integrated data systems help public servants identify gaps in services and pinpoint where they should target outreach and work to increase access for specific groups of citizens. However, as federal agencies begin to work toward an ideal world of data integration, the combination of large volumes, velocities and varieties pose a threat to both public and private sectors as they work toward a seamless solution.
Kundal’s Fireside Chat, moderated by Deepinder Uppal, vice president of Public Sector Technology Innovation with Information Builders, will discuss the priorities and challenges to integrate data systems that provide public servants information about their collective impact and help them identify ways they can improve outcomes together.
In addition to Kundal, Uppal and Eileen Vidrine, chief data officer with the U.S. Air Force, will serve as keynote speakers at the event. The keynote addresses will discuss how the public and private sectors can prepare for the rapid evolution of AI, ML, IoT, and prescriptive analytics starting with data.
As the federal government continues to break down its own barriers and create systems for data integration and information sharing that can be adopted at scale, one thing is clear: it is a shared process that federal and industry leaders must develop together for a more powerful future.
Join Potomac Officers Club for The Power of Data Virtual Forum on June 10th to learn about the impact data has on federal and industry practices, security and other aspects of the marketplace.
