Layer3, through its BlackSentry division, will be holding a workshop on Data Analytics in Abuja. The workshop aims to help organizations, especially government agencies, strategically position themselves to use data analytics to drive change, deliver value and increase public satisfaction.

The event which holds at the Transcorp Hilton on the 7th of June, 2017, is in partnership with SAS, the global leader in Big Data and Analytics, and has over 30 federal government agencies billed to attend.  Discussions will center on how the public sector, the Armed Forces and security agencies can use high performance analytics to tap into large amounts of historical and present data in a structured, systematic and scientific way, generating valuable insights as a result. It presents a great opportunity in initiating service delivery reforms in Nigeria amidst the current economic indices

According to Paul Umoru, Layer3’s Head of Cybersecurity and Data Analytics business, “We will be exploring how to use visual and predictive analytics in process efficiency, innovation, fraud prevention and national security so as to better identify trends and patterns buried in government data and identify opportunities to turn information into action.”
