Herndon, VA (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
CJIS GROUP, a provider of validated, pre-RFP intelligence on upcoming IT projects and procurements in the state and local market, has partnered with several industry leaders to examine the various benefits of Big Data as they apply to State and Local Government agencies.
“The State and Local Balancing Act: Big Data Hype vs. Reality” will be led by John Mancini, President of Association of Information and Image Management (AIIM.) Mr. Mancini will introduce the webinar with commentary on how Big Data is applied in agencies and how more agencies are realizing the benefits of Big Data. "Big data is one of those terms that seem to be generating far more marketing heat than business value light. There is real potential value, but the pendulum needs to shift toward how organizations extract insights and act upon them rather than just fascination with technology." In addition, Mancini will moderate a panel that will include Big Data experts from EMC®, ESRI and Verint Systems.
CJIS GROUP will be hosting this free webinar on October 2, 2013 at 3:30 PM Eastern. The one-hour webinar will include case study presentations by the vendors of successful Big Data implementations.
“Many state and local applications are indeed Big Data but are not necessarily called that. Our research team at CJIS GROUP speaks with thought leaders within an agency to determine how they might use Big Data to help solve criminal cases, establish healthcare cost patterns or simply determine the sentiments of their constituents regarding issues ” stated Gina Rudd, Director of Research at CJIS GROUP. “These are growing areas of focus for government agencies.”
Through our partnerships with the vendor community and government agencies, CJIS GROUP is working to separate the hype of big data from the reality. “Agencies are trying to identify the best way to make better sense of their data. They know the promise of Big Data applications are filled with opportunities to eliminate waste, fraud and better analyze their information, but with any new technology there are challenges. We are excited to be partnered with such great companies that are willing and able to offer this type of insight to our government audience,” stated Stefani Shepherd, Director of Sales at CJIS GROUP.
