The breadth and sensitivity of the data governments store is significantly more challenging than what most organizations must deal with. The data is very large, with a wide variety of knowledge domains, a significant array of attributes about citizens, and severe restrictions on data access and utilization due to privacy regulation.
Our provincial government client needed a way to securely implement data visualization within the organization, while respecting inter-departmental privacy, accounting for very large sums of data, and minimizing hardware, infrastructure, and licensing costs.
We supported the installation, configuration, and governance surrounding the implementation of analytical capabilities serviced by data visualization. To assist the client with adopting governance best practices, we held facilitated workshops with staff from all levels of government, including IT architects, network operations, and department heads to provide direction and justification for embarking on data strategy and governance.
