The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, passed on March 27, 2020, is meant to provide fast and direct economic assistance for U.S. workers, families and small businesses and preserve jobs for our industries, according to the U.S. Department of the Treasury. With the enormous amount of pressure on agencies, there is a need for innovation and technology advances to help the government ensure the success of the bill.
The federal government must deal with two connected, yet separate data-centric conditions that challenge leadership’s ability to make intelligent, data-driven decisions: mission assurance and readiness.
On one hand, the government is creating and ingesting data at an unprecedented rate. The Internet of Things (IoT), connected “smart” devices, critical applications, back-office systems and logistics-linked RFID tags are constantly interacting and collecting thousands of gigabytes of data. According to IDC, there were 2 billion devices in 2006 with a projected 200 billion in 2020 and 90 percent of the world’s data was created in the last two years. This tsunami of data overwhelms the government’s ability to manage, protect, effectively find, parse and use data in an efficient/effective way. Plus doing so is extremely expensive, and the problem will only intensify.
The immediate need to make intelligent, data-driven decisions has never been greater. Every agency is required to have a rapid but accurate COVID-19 response with regard to mission readiness. Mission-centric examples include mobility status/availability—workers at risk, workers with medical backgrounds and employees in mission-critical positions. What impact will this era of “working from home” impose on the agency’s mission to support veterans, hospitals, medical trial research and outcomes, just to name a few. What is your agency’s priority? And where is the data in this current state of, “We need it now”?
How to Get Started
Addressing these problems calls for enterprise-scale data governance. Effective data governance begins with understanding what data you have and where it resides. In other words, there is a need for a real-time inventory and data catalog capable of expanding at enterprise scale. Consider the following key functionality of any such solution:
Due to our current national pandemic, we have all been forced to alter the way we live and work. Within this changing landscape, our needs have shifted because most of us are now required to telework and find new ways to stay connected and increase productivity.
With most federal employees teleworking, there is a need for technology solutions that can support effective data backup, recovery and protection for mission-critical work to continue despite the circumstances.
With Veritas, you can be confident in the ability to scale and accommodate an exabyte-level future where your agency isn’t painted into a corner—architecturally, programmatically, policy-wise or otherwise. Consider a future-proof, enterprise-scalable but sustainable path to data governance success that focuses first on data visibility, coupled with discoverability at scale.
