Advanced analytics is driving government organizations to streamline and improve procedures and processes. Staff from the UNLV Office of Information Technology explored this latest trend at the Nevada Digital Government Summit on Dec. 12 at the Green Valley Ranch Resort.

Shellie Brattain-Mazzella, senior software developer and supervisor, and data services manager Brett Burnes presented the next generation of tools (predictive, text, geospatial, and big data analytics and data visualization) that enhance the customer experience. The session focused on leveraging analytics to drive smarter decisions, faster responses, and better service.

A number of IT professionals from local and state government agencies attended the Nevada Digital Government Summit. An advisory board comprised of public and private sector leaders - including Dr. Lori Temple, vice provost for information technology at UNLV - designed the conference agenda.  

The day-long summit featured keynote speakers, leadership discussions, and networking breaks. The schedule also included breakout sessions covering important topics like cybersecurity, cloud strategy, smart communities, DevOps, and 5G.
