SIIA is happy to announce that they will partner with the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) for Data Innovation Day, coming tomorrow, January 24, 2013. Data Innovation Day works to raise awareness about the benefits and opportunities that come from increased use of information both by individuals and the public/private sector.
This year’s theme is “Big Data. Bigger Opportunities.”
As part of Data Innovation Day, ITIF will host panel discussions in DC on how government agencies are using data to make government work more effectively and efficiently, as well as highlighting interesting examples of how data innovation is transforming different sectors of the economy. DMA will also host a virtual event to celebrate data-driven marketing innovation – and to engage data-driven marketers in the growing data debate that is taking shape in Washington and around the world.
