125989 - Accelerate Value Capture from Your Big Data, IoT, and AI Initiatives with 1/10th the Effort — Real World Examples with C3 IoT and AWS Like their private-sector peers, many public-sector organizations are awash in different types of data yet struggle to utilize these assets to benefit taxpayers and constituents. This session will explore best practices from actual deployments at leading global organizations that have unlocked value with C3 IoT and AWS, including: improved identification of fraud; improving lives by addressing pharmaceutical drug dependency; and significantly reducing energy costs, greenhouse gas emissions, and sustainability reporting. All organizations face challenges associated with: 1) unifying and federating disparate and ever-growing data sets, 2) efficiently mining these data for valuable insights using machine learning and other advanced analytic techniques, 3) operationalizing these insights into front-line applications, and finally, 4) driving change management. These challenges quickly overwhelm typical IT systems and approaches, and require a software platform that applies big data, predictive analytics, and IoT to deliver a new generation of predictive applications. With C3 IoT and AWS, organizations are proven to quickly solve real-world problems in a fraction of the time. Armed with actionable predictions and access to all their data, these entities can prioritize and optimize resources across their value chains to enhance operational efficiency, enable new services, and better serve constituents. 50 Min Breakout Session Nikhil Krishnan - Vice President, Products, C3 IoT

As soon as FedRAMP Accelerated launched, the US General Services Administration (GSA) used this new redesign to advance, which runs on AWS GovCloud (US). It is now the first fully open source FedRAMP solution that has achieved a Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) at the moderate impact level from the FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board (JAB). With, government agencies can: (1) Quickly deploy applications that comply with federal policies — without needing to manage infrastructure. (2) Run scalable cloud-native applications. (3) Try experiments: build and test prototypes without adding extra expense. (4) Shorten the path to ATO (Authority to Operate) for applications hosted on Applications inherit the compliance of the P-ATO, so only the applications need to be comprehensively assessed to receive ATO.
