Data is the lifeblood of modern government. Effective state and local leaders need to rely on information and insight – rather than instinct – to make decisions that increase government efficiency and improve service delivery. But without the right analytics capabilities, organizations can’t optimize, nor produce the level of actionable insight they need.

To assess the current landscape of analytics and automation, Government Technology and Alteryx are partnering on a very special two-part virtual conversation.

The first session, on April 21 at 10am PT/1pm ET, will take a look at analytic automation and how analytics fits into the modern tech stack for an organization. This overview will cover:

  • How an analytic platform can integrate with cloud data platforms to unify workflows
  • Why an agile analytics platform is important to the creating and sharing of insights across multiple reporting and visualization platforms
  • How self-service, machine learning and other low-code and no-code solutions are democratizing data analytics
  • How to build a culture of analytics through upskilling in your organization

And save the date for Part 2 of the conversation on May 13 at 10am PT/1pm ET, when we’ll highlight specific use cases of how state and local agencies are employing analytics to drive decision-making.
