Optimising Real-world Government Service Delivery and Policy through state-of-the-art Data Analytics

Government organisations are not short of data. In fact, the more governments become digitized, the more data will be collected. Their challenge is to bring together these increasing volumes of data from disparate sources, whether internal, across other government agencies or across geographies, in a secure and governed manner to allow new insight across all levels of policy / service delivery. This is not just about making pretty pictures of the magnitudes of data at their disposal. It is about providing the platform that allows the domain experts to "drive" their data exploration journey to facilitate improved decision-making, enhance service delivery to citizens and ensure public resources are used optimally. With over 2,500 public sector clients globally, hear how Qlik has helped them with these same challenges.
