Data Ingestion to Visualization Journey - "The DoD Story"

Presented by

Sandeep Dorawala, Vice President & Graham Evans, Principal Director (Booz Allen Hamilton)

About this talk

In 2018 DoD completed its first-ever audit of the Department of Defense which covered approximately $2.8 trillion in total assets accounting for over 70 percent of the U.S. Government’s ownership. The FY 2018 DoD consolidated audit is arguably one of the largest and most complex financial statement audits ever undertaken in history. This challenge is exacerbated by the hundreds of business and financial systems needed to build the universe of transactions under audit. DoD’s financial management community has created and sustained modern, effective, and cost conscience financial management processes, data, systems, policies, and work-force. This is achieved through a combination of big data, data fusion, and analytics. Booz Allen Hamilton supports DoD and other federal customers in leveraging modern data platform and enterprise analytics techniques that drive these critical capabilities. In one engagement with a large DoD client, Booz Allen implemented ~1,200 StreamSets pipelines to move data from more than 200 enterprise systems to a cloud-based data lake for analysis and reporting. They understand the notions around data operations and the need for a flexible framework to align with the DoD goals. From ingestion to visualization, they are asked to create a variety of information technology solutions to help the DoD manage their data and resources with the core belief being that operating more efficiently will inevitably lead to saving taxpayer money and preventing warfighter casualties. In this session Booz Allen team will walk through some of the learning and experiences as they rolled out the DataOps approach to solving the OUSD needs.
