Object Management Group and Data Transparency Coalition to Co-Host Government Data Standards Summit
NEEDHAM, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
The Object Management Group® (OMG®) and the Data
Transparency Coalition (DTC) will co-host a Government Data Standards
Summit at the Hyatt Regency in Reston, VA on Tuesday, March 25, 2014.
The summit will provide an opportunity for U.S. federal policymakers and
data architects who are deploying data standards to connect directly
with standards specialists in the tech industry.
The full-day event will begin with a keynote address on the potential of
data standards in the federal government. Panel discussions throughout
the day will discuss government data standards already in place, the
future potential of standards in new areas of federal reporting, and the
challenges of developing standards for governmental use. Panelists will
include representatives from the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S.
Treasury, the National Archives and Records Administration, and
private-sector standard setters.
"We're pleased to partner with the Object Management Group to host the
Government Data Standards Summit," said Hudson Hollister, Executive
Director of the Data Transparency Coalition. "Across many domains of
government activity, standards are critically important for delivering
data that is not only open, but also valuable and reliable. This will be
the first opportunity for standards prfessionals in domains as diverse
as law enforcement, financial regulation, and federal spending to learn
from one another."
The registration fee for the event is $150 USD for private sector
attendees. To view the full agenda and to register, visit www.omg.org/gov-va-14.
