Does your company support the capture, storage, search, sharing, analytics or visualization of Big Data? If so, this AgencyInsight webinar is sure to be of interest and value.
According to experts, Big Data is here to stay and is only getting bigger. Data is multiplying at a phenomenal rate as is demand for access to the data and data sets that underlie so much research and development. The Big Data trend continues due to the benefits of working with larger and larger datasets allowing analysts to "spot business trends, prevent diseases, combat crime and more. Projections for the 'Federal Information Market' cite spending in the area of $450M for FY11 with DoD, Commerce, HHS and Justice leading the way in use and spending.
This is where FEDLINK comes in as a resource for agencies, and customer-partner to industry.
On August 17th we host an AgencyInsight Webinar featuring Mr. Blane Dessy, Executive Director of the Federal Library and Information Center Committee (FLICC) at the Library of Congress (LOC).
We've asked Mr. Dessy to discuss the Federal Library and Information Network (FEDLINK) and the opportunities available for industry partners to help agency customers leverage FEDLINK's fee-for-service contracting capabilities. FEDLINK serves federal libraries and information centers as their purchasing, training and resource-sharing consortium. As the FLICC business subsidiary, customers can tap into the expertise of federal librarians, contracting officers, financial managers, and customer service representatives — getting the best products and services at the best available prices.
FEDLINK, as an acquisitions office with expertise in electronic resources, is prepared to assist both buyers and sellers of Big Data. FEDLINK has approximately forty years experience working with electronic information sources and is poised to help with the acquisition and management of BIG Data.
Because FEDLINK has revolving fund authority, FEDLINK customers can advance funds to pay for products and services.
