From Static Data Warehouse to Scalable Insights and AI On-Demand for the Public Sector

Government agencies today are dealing with a wider variety of data at a much larger scale. From satellite imagery to sensor data to citizen records, petabytes of semi- and unstructured data is collected each day. Unfortunately, traditional data warehouses are failing to provide government agencies with the capabilities they need to drive value out of their data in today’s big data world. In fact, 73% of federal IT managers report that their agency not only struggles with harnessing and securing data, but also faces challenges analyzing and interpreting it1.

Some of the most common pain points facing data teams in the federal government include:

  • inelastic and costly compute and storage resources
  • rigid architectures that require teams to build time-consuming ETL pipelines
  • limited support for advanced analytics and machine learning

Fortunately, Databricks Unified Data Analytics Platform powered by Apache SparkTM and Delta Lake provides a fast, simple, and scalable way to augment your existing data warehousing strategy by combining pluggable support for a broad set of data types and sources, scalable compute on-demand and the ability to perform low latency queries in real-time rather than investing in complicated and costly ETL pipelines. Additionally, Databricks provides the tools necessary for advanced analytics and machine learning, future proofing your analytics.
