VANROEKEL AND TANGHERLINI TO KEYNOTE 2014 EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP
Government and Industry Leaders Connect to Inspire Innovation at
ACT-IAC’s Premier Event
American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council
(ACT-IAC) today announced the program agenda and keynote speakers for
Annual Executive Leadership Conference (ELC). The two-day premier
training and education event will stimulate dialogue between
senior-level government and industry information technology (IT)
executives to inspire “Leadership and Innovation in Radically Changing
Times.” The event will take place October 26 – 28, 2014 in Colonial
“With the recent tsunami of disruptive technology, government needs to
rethink traditional delivery models,” said Adrian Gardner, 2014 ELC
Government Chair. “ELC 2014 will explore how the emerging collaborative
federal ecosystem is transforming how, and with whom, people work –
requiring agencies to adopt new approaches to carry out missions and
provide improved citizen services.”
The event’s speakers and government-focused agenda feature leading
experts from federal, academia, industry and the commercial world. 2014
ELC plenary speakers include Steven VanRoekel, Acting Deputy
Director for Management, Office of Management and Budget, and Federal
Chief Information Officer; Dan Tangherlini, Administrator, U.S.
General Services Administration; and Frans Johansson, author of
“The Medici Effect” and founder of the Medici Group.
What’s more, this year’s ELC will see the introduction of Collaboration
ELC! – a highly interactive format that will change how
attendees think about traditional conference methodology. With three
distinct areas to recharge, network, learn, share ideas, gather and
engage, this interactive approach will take crowdsourcing innovation to
the next level.
This year’s educational program will focus on innovative tools,
techniques and approaches to carrying out missions and providing
services to constituents, featuring two dedicated tracks to explore
Shared Solutions, Citizen Services and IT Service Delivery. The event
will address how agencies and leaders can improve coordination from the
lens of IT, Acquisition and Program Management and ensure attendees
depart with practical solutions to implement towards their
organization’s goals. The mission-focused tracks include:
Citizens Services Track – This track is determined to identify
actionable ways for government and industry to improve customer service
to citizens. Track sessions will dive into the differences between
customer service and citizen service, the biggest barriers to providing
citizen-centric experiences and case studies demonstrating best
practices to overcome those barriers.
Shared Solutions Track – Panelists and attendees will address the
fact that the current federal budget environment demands an increase in
the sharing of service delivery solutions across federal and state
agency providers. Sessions will investigate overall drivers – including
leadership and program management, acquisition, and technology – that
contribute to successful shared processes and service delivery
applications that ultimately improve the citizen experience.
“Now is the time to explore best practices for leveraging new
technologies and data for improved mission success, citizen services and
shared delivery models,” said Kathleen Cowles, 2014 ELC Industry Chair.
“ELC 2014 participants will put their signature on reshaping the future
of government by identifying proven, sustainable business models to
break down existing barriers in order to solve government’s toughest
This year’s ELC will bring together 850 senior-level government
officials and industry executives to collaborate and adopt new
approaches to carry out mission-focused decisions and provide citizen
services. Attendees will receive continuing education units (CEUs),
Professional Development Units and Continuous Learning Points for their

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
