Leveraging the Data Cloud for Government to Break Down Data Silos

Isolated, siloed data makes harnessing the value of data time-consuming and expensive.
Governance and collaboration can be impossible to achieve across multiple technologies and
clouds. Attend this session to see how the Snowflake Data Cloud for government eliminates
siloes and facilitates secure, governed data sharing and collaboration, regardless of an
organization’s cloud provider.

Modernization Tools and Tactics

It seems more than a few organizations are lamenting having postponed their modernization initiatives. The shutdown(s) exposed some serious shortcomings in legacy systems, networks, processes, and business critical applications. Whether it be due to skyrocketing demand for online services, or the uphill climb to circumvent the need for on-site personnel. Now is a good time to take stock and consider solutions that do not require radical remedies. Our presentation will cover how to get dynamic, cloud ready, and agile today!
