GSA recognized for cloud analytics platform

The General Services Administration’s analytics-as-a-service program was recently recognized at Red Hat’s annual innovation awards.

The Data to Decisions platform collects, manages and analyzes data for internal and external agency stakeholders. D2D can process operational reporting data on past events and perform predictive and diagnostic analytics, according to GSA.  

The platform collects data from multiple sources and in different formats and organizes it into physical and virtual data marts. It provides a single source for enterprise information management, data visualization tools and dashboards and a repository accessible through the customer’s site, cloud or hybrid solution. It also offers a suite of analytics tools so customers can use data to make executive-level decisions.

GSA said D2D enables agencies to better use data resources to lower costs, address security requirements, improve analytical accuracy and encourage open source technologies.

Thus far, available datasets on D2D include federal mail expenditures and training certificates, GSA building vacancy, buildings and leases. A number of governmentwide reports and dashboards are also already accessible.
