The Energy Department’s Office of the Chief Information Officer hosted a Data Analytics Technology Summit to showcase how the agency is using data analytics to make better data-driven decisions, provide value, and ultimately create mission impact.
Data scientists and practitioners from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are using data analytics to secure information, and as a result have real-time detection capabilities for cyber attacks and intrusions giving the Department the ability to protect its data.
Our partners at the Energy Information Administration demonstrated the Electricity Data Browser influence on creating the visualization of data, bringing together maps, query tools, and application programming interfaces.
The Summit’s presenters emphasized how data discovery, integration, and exploitation in real-time can provide the awareness needed for anything from future urban planning and the reduction of our carbon footprint, to the implications of evacuation plans.
At the Energy Department, we understand the impact of successfully leveraging our corporate data and making it freely-available whenever possible for mission effectiveness. Decisions need to be data-driven. It's about pushing the envelope and making the Digital Strategy real…something the Department and its National Laboratories do every day.
