Teradata helps government organizations leverage all their data to know more about their citizens, answer new questions, drive deeper insights and make better decisions to improve agency outcomes.
As government agencies work to adapt data capture practices now standardized by the private sector, new data types—specifically, big data—are not waiting for them to catch up. Big data refers to data sets (both structured and multi-structured) whose size and complexity are beyond the ability of commonly used software tools for capturing, managing, and processing in a timely manner.Teradata solutions leverage all your data—such as legacy transactional systems, ERP systems, sensors, web data, cyber data, cloud-computing, Hadoop/Map-Reduce environments, text and other data types—so you can gain a single, integrated view of your operations and make faster, better decisions that enhance operational efficiency. How a Unified Data Architecture Can Revolutionize Analytics in Government
Many organizations don’t realize that “text” data is big data, too. In fact, it’s a type of behavioral data that offers just as much valuable, direct insight into everyday activities as from clickstream behavior on the web, or sensor readings from complex machines. Big data analytics can isolate these insights and help anticipate threats to security. The complex relationships and patterns in text data are exposed using a wide range of analytics to extract meaning, correlations, who influences who, and more. Gone are the days of producing after-the-fact reports and charts. “Smart Government” is all about staying ahead of the game. Government Text Analytics
Continuously changing threats to homeland and global security are increasing demands to recognize emerging trends faster, leaving more time to react and neutralize them. An area of focus is the sizing-up of emerging threats in social media, for example when it is used as a recruitment and marketing method for terrorist organizations. The problem is that as the popularity of social media continues to grow, there are an overwhelming number of accounts to analyze. Psycholinguistics can help. Through Teradata’s combination of big data tools, such as text analytics, machine learning and graph techniques, investigators can cull through vast amounts of data with a high degree of accuracy for identifying suspect users and people of interest. The results are pinpoint insights into personality models that can be tracked – results that can improve security and build an accumulating knowledge base more efficiently.

Most answers to government healthcare questions depend on easy access to reliable data. If government agencies have the power to transform beneficiary, clinical, cost, investigative, audit, and regulatory data into a wealth of policy and operational insights, the results can lead to a new era of informed government program management. Having a single-source view of healthcare data can vastly simplify operational management of government-sized programs.
In the face of continuing budget constraints, aging infrastructure, and challenges inherent in moving people and things, transportation agencies need smarter, more efficient ways to optimize existing resources, reduce congestion and costs, protect the environment, and serve travelers better. Teradata solutions can help by transforming all your data into powerful business insights, quickly and efficiently.
Keep Transportation Moving with Analytics
At the heart of government logistics and supply chain are assets, inventory/spare parts, and the people who move and maintain those assets to keep the supply chain running. With so many factors and related demands interacting, it’s easy to forget a common thread among them—each generates an enormous amount of interconnected data. The data can be structured, such as shipments, parts and maintenance data, or large quantities of unstructured data, such as geolocation data, transportation asset performance data from sensors and operator trouble logs. Teradata solutions are designed to leverage all your data, so you can gain a single, integrated view of your logistics and supply chain operations and make faster, more informed decisions that improve operational efficiency.

Every year agencies leave billions of dollars in tax revenue uncollected. This tax gap is as high as 17 percent at the federal level, according to IRS estimates. And for states, the gap grows even wider. Closing the tax gap would mean agencies can do more than bring in additional revenue; it would offer opportunities to ensure that all taxpayers pay their fair amount—a critical step toward improving fairness and equity.

Mind the Gap: Get the real story on the Future of Tax Compliance
The Federal Government maintains vast amounts of data across multiple agencies. The Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act) establishes data standards and sharing protocols designed to provide American citizens and policymakers better visibility into federal spending—and help agencies exploit the benefits of data mining and analytics. Wise agencies and early adopters recognize how to transform this new compliance obligation into an opportunity to advance their federal agency objectives through data-driven strategies.
Like the private sector, government agencies need to make sure they deliver the right services; manage and reduce the cost of delivering services; and increase citizen satisfaction. The good news is that new technologies and platforms are available today to provide deeper, more meaningful insights about citizens, services, and processes—helping government agencies improve efficiency at delivering what citizens need through more cost effective delivery channels.
