Today’s interview is with Rob Carey, Cloudera Government Solutions. He is a well-known expert who boasts twenty-five years of increasing management authority in the United States Navy. He begins with an observation that focusing on the platform or the infrastructure will misdirect systems administrators. Effectively securing the data over a hybrid cloud will allow one to optimize this data stream in a fast and secure manner.
It sure looks like the federal government is starting to recognize data is a strategic asset; managing that asset given today’s pace of volume and complexity forces leaders to examine a more systematic approach to handling data.
Let’s review: in 2021 there was an Executive Order called the Federal Data Strategy. That same year, the State Department deployed its data strategy. The DoD developed the Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JDAC2) to utilize data in today’s contested environments. The Chief Data Officers Council now lists 90 members.
During the interview, Rob defines concepts like data lakes, data warehouses, and data lake houses. The differentiation is not to produce a tech glossary to dazzle outsiders, the reason for the differentiation is to give federal leaders data-driven insights.
He argues that today’s hybrid clouds must be bridged by a system that can leverage machine learning and artificial intelligence to classify and tag data in a fast-moving world.
