Lori Mongold - US Army

How the Defense Acquisition University Shines a Light on Data Literacy

Mark C. Whiteside, Director of Performance and Resource Management – Defense Acquisition University




Federal Data Strategy Roundtable 

With the recent release of the Federal Data Strategy, how government collects, consumes and uses data to make decisions has never been more important. During this session Jay Huie, White House Fellow in the Office of the Federal CIO will lead a discussion about how the Federal Data Strategy was developed, what it means for federal agencies and others, and what’s next as government moves the strategy into operation.  This session is intended to be an open dialogue among the participants, which will include policymakers, federal data fellows and agency mission owners sharing their views on how the Federal Data Strategy impacts them and what they’re doing to build a data-driven culture in their agencies.

Accelerating Adoption and Improving Readiness in the US Army

In the US Army, everything is driven by a single mission: Readiness. Getting the right equipment into the right soldier’s hands at the right time. But many of the Army’s business systems are 30 years old—siloed systems that are not integrated or interoperable. Learn how the Army is using Qlik to course-correct this age-old problem and driving analytic adoption at all levels.
Driving change in an organization with nearly 1.5 million personnel is no small feat. During this session, we’ll share lessons learned in our journey that you can take back to your organization. Specific topics covered will include:
  • How the Army uses data
  • Addressing challenges with and making sense of unstructured data
  • Using data for current and emerging threats
  • Building apps with the end-user in mind


How the Defense Acquisition University Shines a Light on Data Literacy

Learn how the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) is spreading data literacy throughout the organization—one stakeholder group at a time. The DAU undertakes data literacy not as a single event, but rather as an on-going campaign. Our strategy emulates the methodologies of ancient builders – start with a strong foundation and add on to it.

In this session, learn how the DAU embarked on its journey (and take away tips to apply in your journey!). We began naturally with an invested group at the C-suite level, then expanded our data sets and apps throughout the enterprise. At each step, we’ve created a constant drumbeat that highlights the value of data. We keep that rhythmic beat active by revising the message, as needed, to each stakeholder’s level of understanding and unique vested interests, as well as providing data literacy education. Among them, serving the myriad Congressional data calls launched upon the DAU at any given time.

With Qlik, the speed and accuracy at which the DAU now responds has become its own reward – as each success enlists further buy-in to the merits of a strong data-literate workforce.


2:30 – 3:15 PM

Data Science Panel - Hosted by ThunderCat 



Transforming the DOD Audit Process

Greg Little, Business Integration Office - Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller)
Driving a Culture Shift with Data at the Defense Logistics Agency

Teresa W. Smith, Chief Data Officer - DLA


Data Science Panel - Hosted by ThunderCat

In this session, we’ll talk with leading data scientists from the industry. Specifically, we’ll explore the approaches they’ve employed in developing and implementing an end-to-end data strategy, including effective frameworks employed, lessons learned, and how technology has helped moving from strategy to reality.


Transforming the DOD Audit Process

Learn how the Department of Defense has transformed the financial audit process by enabling analysis of Departmental activities from the enterprise level, down to the individual transaction level. The Defense Repository for Common Enterprise Data (DRCED) project ingests more than 7 billion transactions from 60+ systems, standardizes that data into a common data taxonomy, and delivers the data as a shared service, meaning it’s captured once and curated centrally for enterprise use.
The outcomes are plentiful, including:
• Identified $16B in lapsed funding through a time series analysis on appropriation execution
• Uncovered $110M of monthly financial transactional variances
• Reduced the monthly audit process from three weeks to one day by capturing the data one and using it everywhere
• Exposed data quality issues—which is a great thing, given we reconcile more than $100B quarterly

Driving a Culture Shift with Data at the Defense Logistics Agency

The Defense Logistics Agency is in the midst of a culture shift that empowers employees to analyze and leverage data in new and innovative ways. Learn how Teresa Smith is leading this change by improving data usage to drive better business decision-making at the strategic, tactical and operational levels. She will also discuss the challenges of delivering both internal and external customers with agile, state-of-the-art data and analytics capabilities. Listen as Teresa explains how she has addressed data segregation along with the challenges of sizing and infrastructure. She will discuss the accomplishments of the data and analytics community within DLA and how she plans to engage the entire agency on the march towards data literacy.



3:30 – 4:15 PM
From Data Lake to Data Marketplace

Joe DosSantos, Global Head of Data Management Strategy - Qlik
Improving Student Outcomes with Data

William Henderson – OSSE


Data-Informed Decision Making

Kevin Hanegan, Chief Learning Officer – Qlik

From Data Lake to Data Marketplace

Data Democratization depends on easy access to data to enable timely answers to important business decisions.  While data lakes have made it easy to gather data together, you might need an advanced degree in computer science to find and use the data that you need.  We shop for groceries and we shop for clothing.  When we go to the store or shop on-line, the shopping experience helps us find what we want and restricts us from having that which we can't.  Why can't we shop for data the same way?  This session will explore how we can apply all that we have learned from the in store and on-line shopping experience to the world of analytics to turn data lakes into data marketplaces.

Improving Student Outcomes with Data

Learn how Washington, DC's Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) leverages data throughout the organization to improve secondary education. They'll discuss how focusing on data literacy throughout the organization has led to better student outcomes, including proactive support for at-risk children.


Data-Informed Decision Making

Data-informed decision making is the ability to transform data and information into actionable and verified knowledge to ultimately make decisions. There is no magic ball that will turn your business decisions into concrete results, but there is an overall framework that can be utilized to guide yourself to making a good decision and avoiding bad decisions. This session will focus on explaining that framework with strategies and tools that you can use immediately
