What is Data Analytics?
Data Analytics refers to the growing field of analysis of a large swath of reporting information. It can include utilizing responsive visualizations to hiring data scientists to dig deep into trends. These are often assisted by machine language processing and data modeling for forecasting.
Up until now, the public sector has maintained a position of being followers rather than leaders. When it comes to data technology, data is the quintessential factor in helping administrators and elected officials plan for the future of their municipality for generations to come. Leaders need to be able to rely on data that is accurate. Otherwise, they’ll be making decisions without hard facts to help guide them toward their goals for their constituents.
As discussed on our Budget Assessment page, it is imperative to have the necessary data available. This data renders a logical, prudent decision during deliberations on moving your municipality forward with proper funding. A proper real-time data analytics strategy is more involved than making use of spreadsheets and formulas. These techniques use your data to tell a story to make the best possible decisions – allowing you to improve your community and avoid financial consequences.
