Government agencies are confronting a new era of challenges in extracting value from their data. As the volume and velocity of data from mission and operations, cybersecurity systems, IoT and edge devices, cloud application traces, and now generative AI keep growing, agency leaders need more effective ways to capitalize on the value of all that data.
