Mobility is critical to government productivity, but mobile data and devices present attractive targets to cybercriminals seeking to exploit vulnerabilities across
the spectrum. Federal agencies are no strangers to cybersecurity attacks, and several recent high-profile breaches involving mobile devices demonstrate ongoing vulnerabilities in government’s expanding network of endpoints. This issue brief describes what can be done to protect devices, data and networks, including multi-factor authentication to authorization controls and user education.
From child welfare and public health to combating prescription abuse and improving education, analytics is improving government programs around the world.
The articles in this e-book touch on several areas where analytics is making, or could make, a significant impact in the way governments operate. We’ve pulled together some of our favorite best practices that showcase the role analytics plays in better decision making.
To support open government initiatives and uphold the values of transparency, participation and collaboration in the US, federal agencies today make their data open, or publicly accessible. Citizens can use this open data to assess college affordability, the economy, educational issues, environmental damage, health care, taxes, agriculture, the climate and more. Governments can use APIs to pull this open data into SAS Visual Analytics as a way to identify trends and patterns and obtain all sorts of new insights. With public health surveillance, for example, governments can monitor and evaluate indicators that point to high-risk areas so they’ll know where and how to focus efforts. Such public health surveillance can serve as an early warning system for impending emergencies, document the impact of an intervention, track progress toward public health goals, and clarify health problems to inform public health policies and strategies.
Colleges and universities are transforming to meet the demands of new students. Technology plays a critical role in making improvements to both physical and process infrastructure.
As the world’s leading provider of education technology, Lenovo knows that steady technology leadership is critical to ensuring higher education institutions to stay responsive to these always-evolving, real-world challenges.

The media and entertainment industry
was valued at $1.81 trillion in 2016,
and is expected to reach $2.14 trillion
by 2020. Activities within this industry
have grown over the last couple of years,
and now range from creating content for
movies, TV and games, to delivering that
content. This is increasingly performed
via on-demand data networks rather
than traditional over-the-air broadcasting,
watched over high resolution displays that
enhance the overall viewing experience
of the user, and even the latter is
being delivered from the same storage
repositories. Media production is also
now prevalent in areas not traditionally
associated with this activity, such as
training, museums, and education.
The bar for success is rising in higher education. University leaders and IT administrators are aware of the compelling benefits of digital transformation overall—and artificial intelligence (AI) in particular. AI can amplify human capabilities by using machine learning, or deep learning, to convert the fast-growing and plentiful sources of data about all aspects of a university into actionable insights that drive better decisions. But when planning a transformational strategy, these leaders must prioritize operational continuity. It’s critical to protect the everyday activities of learning, research, and administration that rely on the IT infrastructure to consistently deliver data to its applications.

The United States educational system is in the midst of transformational change due to widespread adoption of
technologies, including video, mobile devices, and cloud services. Given the enormous potential of these technologies to improve educational outcomes, increase access to information and collaboration, and reduce costs, schools and libraries across the nation want to do more, not less, with technology.
As education evolves, so does the way we teach and learn. This report focuses on one of the newest trends, still in its nascent
stages—mobile learning. It describes the potential benefits of mobile learning, addresses the challenges and opportunities that
introducing mobile learning presents, and provides examples from school districts that have already implemented mobile learning programs so we can learn from their best practices. The report also suggests key points to consider as you develop your plans, align your goals, and make decisions regarding mobile learning in your schools.

Case management frameworks built on business process management platforms help IT solutions architects deploy case-handling applications and offer an alternative to specialized case management applications and custom coding. According to Gartner, the complex architecture required to support case management has relegated it to the status of a niche application, typically addressed by specialist, commercial off-the-shelf application providers and system integrators. Case management as a process style is being applied in many sectors beyond government, legal and insurance, including healthcare, banking, higher education and retail. Industry and cross-industry case management frameworks are now available. "Adaptive case management" hype exceeds the reality of what buyers need. Gartner evaluated 12 vendors including Pegasystems against nine critical capabilities in four use cases.

If you’re anything like your peers, you are evaluating your education technology on an annual basis to determine if it’s time for a refresh. While most schools conduct their device refreshes during the summer because teachers, staff and students are not present, this timing can prove costly as the market is flooded with devices from schools doing the same thing.
To help school districts re-think their technology spending to focus more on total cost of ownership and residual value, as opposed to upfront cost, we’ve partnered with Diamond Assets — a technology buyback company — to explain:
• The true value and cost of iPad and Chromebook in education
• When schools receive the most trade-in value for their technology
• How to prepare for and execute technology refreshes
