The Role of Federal Data as a Service


The federal government controls vast troves of data, including information collected as part of routine administrative operations. In order to strategically unlock the value of these data, researchers and data users need improved access and capabilities to combine and analyze this information. By considering data as a service, the federal government can address these problems and improve the agility of their data, improve access for research, and overall data management. The speakers discussed opportunities for a federal data service, as well as best practices to be considered.
