From the depths of our oceans to the uppermost edge of our atmosphere and all the space in between, NOAA has data that is used by government, industry, and citizens. And it is working to enable even more sharing of the data collected.

Watch now to hear from Adrienne Simonson, NOAA Director, Big Data Program; Jenny Dissen, North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies, and Monica McEwen, Deloitte Managing Director, as we discuss NOAA’s efforts to increase user engagement with their work, including expanding into different sectors. Who would find NOAA data useful and what is the best way to effectively, yet securely, share that data?

Data Champions is the program featuring a robust group of IT modernization and data analytics experts from the government community. Data Champions is unlike any other meetup you’ve attended. No slides, no formal presentations—just sharing of best practices and examples of leveraging data as a strategic asset. Data Champions is moderated by host and Fed 100 awardee Nicholas Speece, Snowflake Chief Federal Technologist.
