Data management and analytics continue to become more important to all organizations, regardless of industry. It has become increasingly important to keeping government operations efficient and transparent. GCN brought this topic to our attention in their article, “How states can get the most from data analytics.”

Before and most especially during the pandemic, data analytics has been crucial for delivering necessary insights. At a state and local government level, it can help with mitigating fraud, making budget cuts and investment decisions, understanding how to manage investments in information technology and staff.

To derive actionable insights from the vast trove of data available, you must have access to the data first. Metadata makes digital content findable. However, findability works only when a proper taxonomy is in place. Proper indexing against a strong standards-based taxonomy increases the findability of data. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies. We are the intelligence and the technology behind world-class explainable AI solutions.
