IBM Government Analytics Forum 2013

Event Overview

Government organizations today face unprecedented challenges: global economic pressures, greater demands for services from citizens, reduced sources of revenue, and calls for more accountability. But without access to decision-quality information, agencies struggle to ensure better outcomes for everyone, everywhere.

It’s no surprise then why more government leaders are recognizing the value of powerful analytics to drive the best possible outcomes.

Join us on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 for the IBM Government Analytics Forum in Washington, DC. This year's event is being produced in association with Government Executive Media Group, the most trusted information resource serving senior decision makers in government.
