Breakfast Seminar for Government Executives

Strategy Alignment with Analytics and Data

September 28 | SAS Canada | Ottawa
8:00 a.m. -10:00 a.m.

Cost: Complimentary

When it comes to data and analytics strategy, it is often a circular “chicken and egg” argument of which comes first. And, in reality, the answer is neither. Successful data and analytics strategies are driven by business strategy, and in the public sector this means key government initiatives and public policy are the drivers.  The unfortunate reality is that many public sector IT and business professionals forego strategic planning and wait for economic or political realities to dictate how their departments will succeed.

In this session, our expert Anne Buff will look at how to:

    • Effectively and proactively align your data and analytics efforts to key government initiatives versus waiting for the political winds to blow.
    • Apply the concept of strategy mapping to inform project prioritization and tactical roadmaps for scaling in to cross-departmental and cross-ministry capabilities.
    • Measure and define the success of your programs in terms that will capture and retain the attention of executive leadership.


    You will not only learn how to clearly outline your data and analytics strategies, but also how to put them in to action and consistently demonstrate success.

    We look forward to seeing you on September 28. Seats fill quickly for this exclusive event, so please reserve your spot today.
