Thank you for joining our webinar on Easy, Real-Time BI in the Cloud for Government Agencies. My name is Jennifer Summers, I am the director of marketing for dmg federal and todays host. Before we get started with the presentation et me take care of a bit of houskeeping. We encourage you to ask questions throughout the presentation. Questions can be submitted via the Webex console in the panel to the right side of your screen. This session is being recorded and the slide deck is available at www.slideshare.net/kognitio. Also, please take the time to follow our conversations on twitter dmgfederal and @kognitioOk, now that all the housekeeping is taken care of, lets get started. Todays session will be 45 minutes where I will provide an overview of what traditional business intelligence (or bi) typically looks like in the government, and then how you can move to a more modern bi model with federal iq. My technical resources will then take you through a live demonstration so you can see the benefits of federal I and Kognitio together followed by a Q&A session which will complete todays event
Government & public sector organizations have always had the challenge of Big Data, collecting everything possible, trying to analyze and understand it to mitigate potential threats, risks or just find that needle in the haystack to any mission-critical initiative. There is a wealth of information and data held within public sector bodies but who needs to know what? What information is appropriate for which department? With the emphasis on the public sector to make efficiency savings it is important that information can be found effectively. Regardless of the disparate systems agency-wide.
The need for Business Intelligence and Big Data analytics in the Government sector is significant, urgent, and has the potential to dramatically impact service-delivery and nation's security. Government agencies need to more effectively share and analyze data across departments, regardless of their legacy systems, to deliver improved services and meet mission initiatives.The typical infrastructures these agencies have is already complex and not designed for combining all the disparate data in one place and running real-time advanced analytics. The challenge government & public sector organizations face is moving from taking a reactive to a proactive approach – and finding that needle in the haystack before a threat or risk occurrence actually happens. So how do we address this?
What about cloud? But can you move to the cloud to collect and combine your data in one place to run proactive, real-time analytics? Historically even though the capability was there, public sector agencies like yours could not take advantage of it due to security regulations…. But now you can…..
Federal IQ is DMG Federal’s FISMA secured Cloud Business Intelligence framework, which enables users to connect and access information via any standard Internet connection or mobile device. Federal IQ delivers the benefits of cloud computing to the public sector with confidence with managed services for an end to end BI experience. The Frameworkis already certified, cleared and ready to work in the public sector. The security qualifications include: FISMA, DIACAP, FPIS, NIST and 13 ATO’s. We have teamed with Kognitio to deliver big data analytics and accelerate the performance of reports and dashboards.
So how does it work? Federal IQ delivers secure access to real-time data whenever and wherever you need it with cloud-based BI and data management in a secure framework. It includes multiple applications to support your data visualization, big data analytics and predictive analysis requirements and is accessible through any internet connection. The framework is customizable on many levels. Depending on your infrastructure and security requirements you can choose the best delivery option for you. These options include the traditional cloud model where both data and applications are in the cloud, a hybrid model where applications are in the cloud but data remains on-premise and the traditional license model where both data and applications remain on-premise.
So what does this really mean to you. WE had a Scenario: with a government entity that had multiple disparate data sources with multiple tables and multiple viewsTheir Challenge: was to Track greenhouse emissions data by state, considering weather conditions and type of emissions and amount emitted by factories/businesses, homes and driversThe challenge couldn’t be met due to their current infrastructure so as depicted in the graphic , the government moved to a cloud model to streamline how their data was collected stored and analysed. Now everyone within the agency from it administrators to the front end users has secure access to the emissions data to run real time ad hoc reports to discover trendsSo lets take a deeper dive into what the underlying technology actually looks like. Carl, do you mind giving us more technical detail on the infrastructure?
describe the traditional technology; how moving directly from the persistence layer to the BI visualization layer creates a bottleneck to the real-time speed needed for proactive information discovery.Kognitio deployment options analytics can be developed in low-cost “temporary” cloud instancesownership can be passed to IT and implementation is in a familiar frameworkCarl to do
describe how this technology, Federal IQ with Kognitio, an in-memory analytical platform, enables users to keep the data where it currently sits, securely pin it in Kognitio and use a host of BI tools for dazzling visualizations, all within the secure FedIQ cloud.Carl do
Thank you Carl, so it is all about moving from the chaos caused by more traditional BI to a more structured Cloud framework like federal IQ where all your data can be stored, and analyzed so you can take a more proactive approach versus being reactive, -- empowering users to make more informed decisions on your data, no matter what your back-end looks like. So to provide a bit of clarification, Any Business Intelligence application can be housed or connected to Federal IQ, this specific diagram shows the users with a Tableau front-end which is what we will be leveraging for today’s demo purposes.
For those of you who are not familiar with Tableau, Tableau is A BI application that provides browser-based analytics anyone can learn and use. We chose tableau for its ability to access customized queries and get more specific data or ad hoc reporting in seconds
So now that we have told you the benefits of Kognitio with Federal IQ lets show you the real power it delivers. With that I am going to pass control over to my technical resource, Derrick, so that he can provide an overview of how it works, thank you Derrick…
Thank you Carl, it is great to see how easy it is to give users the ability to run in-memory analytics but we always go back to the question about Security. DMG Federal developed the Federal IQ freamework to provide U.S. Federal government enterprises with a secure and robust infrastructure to build and deploy mission critical solutions for their constituents. The Framework is already certified, cleared and ready to work in the public sector. WE are compliant with The Federal Information Security Management Act as well as with the DoDs Information Assurance Certification. Our experienced security professionals are proficient in steps of the NIST 800-37 Risk Management Framework and have successfully completed many security audits through Authorization to Operate (ATO) against U.S. federal government security guidelines.
Thank you again Carl. SO for those of you that want to test Kognitio for yourself, you can Download it for free today by going to dmgfederal.com/kognitodownload.Kognitio is also available through Informatica and AWS as well. We will also be e-mailing you this link as part of our follow-up to todays event.
So with that, this concludes the presentation portion of todays event. As a reminder, We will be taking questions through the question feature in the webex console on the right side of your screen. We currently have XX questions in the que that I will go through…….Once again, thank you for attending our web event. We will be reaching out to you individually to ensure all questions were answered as well as to get any feedback you may have for us. Thank you.
