Tuesday, April 6, 2021

Hosted By: Collibra & Carahsoft


The Department of Defense Data Strategy has provided a framework for the Departments Agencies and MilDeps that enables Data Driven Decisions and Mission Focused Outcomes. DOD in partnership with Industry is leading the way. Advana was built to address mission critical issues, and the addition of Collibra, a “data discovery capability,” has helped unlock the value of the DOD’s data in Advana.

In this podcast, a panel consisting of Allyson Spring, the AVP for Federal at Collibra, Graham Evans, Principal at Booz Allen Hamilton, Howard Levenson, the General Manager for Federal at Databricks, and Brian Shealey, the VP of Public Sector at Trifacta highlight the value of data within the Department of Defense.
