Why Attend?

In recent years we have observed budget cuts, focus on fraud elimination, operational efficiency, internally generated revenue and security within the public sector. This presents an opportunity as well as a great challenge in initiating service delivery reforms within the Nigerian public sector amidst current economic indices.


Ministries, Departmental and Agencies (MDA) need to therefore work towards achieving goals such as data transparency, data analytics, identity management, forecasting and reduce wastage.
There are significant changes in government that have fueled the need for advanced analytics such as:

  1. Increased security challenges such as terrorism, kidnapping and theft.
  2. Adoption of online transaction in many government process.
  3. Demand for real-time information in policy making
  4. Advanced Forecasting and prediction for policy planners
  5. Identity and population management in sectors such as health, tax and pensions
  6. Challenges of food security, housing, unemployment and climate change.

A large amount of historical data is available to tap into the power of analytics, however many MDAs are not equipped to leverage this information adequately to understand and plan their business processes in a scientific, structured and systematic way.
