Session 21-C

Value creation at NASA – a new CDO’s Perspective

← Back to Agenda

NASA has a long history of leveraging data to enable discovery, exploration, and innovation – not just within the agency, but across the nation and around the world.  Today, NASA recognizes that delivering on this mission in an increasingly complex world requires proactive digital transformation (DT).  In response, NASA launched an agency-wide Enterprise DT strategic initiative to assure continued success well into the future. Data is recognized as a critical element to fuel the NASA digital transformation.  Join this session hosted by the newly appointed Chief Data Officer who brings over 22 years of IT and Data experience from DoD and the intelligence community.  Dave will share key elements from the NASA Data Strategy, Digital Transformation strategy and progress, and some next steps based on his early observations in this role.
