Government agencies have access to an ever-increasing volume and variety of big data with increasing pressure to use advanced analytics to derive actionable insight and communicate accomplishments quickly and effectively to a wide variety of stakeholders.

Despite the immense value creative analytic solutions can deliver, many government agencies struggle with how to get actionable insight from their data. From detecting fraud to improving program integrity and efficiency, predictive analytics has the power to transform big data into knowledge to drive informed decisions for government oversight.
