Sponsor Session: GovConnection- How to Leverage Data tools to Improve Education Programs and Outcomes

Data is now the key strategic asset whether we’re talking about business, healthcare, or education.  Everything that’s happening in the world around us is producing incredibly rich data that can help us create new experiences, new efficiencies, new models and even new inventions. While data is pervasive, actionable intelligence from data is elusive. Today’s educators need to be able to effectively and quickly analyze their data so they can understand not only what happened, but also what will happen.

Microsoft Power BI is a suite of business analytic tools used to analyze data and gain insights. In this session, we’ll take an introductory look at Microsoft Power BI, how we can create interactive and intuitive dashboards, and gain a 360 degree view of all of our institution’s data.

Sponsor Session: Nutanix- Hyperconverged Infrastructure: Supporting Digital Equity for our Schools

School districts throughout the U.S. have adopted hyperconverged infrastructure that enables them to deliver the efficiencies and performance of the cloud from their own infrastructure, truly supporting the digital equity agenda. By replacing legacy, siloed infrastructure with a platform that natively converges virtualization, compute, storage and networking, and includes integration with AWS & Microsoft Azure, these school systems and districts are optimally positioned to leverage the efficiencies of hybrid cloud that provide massive efficiencies and scalability. Join Nutanix for this session, so you can learn more about the way that hyperconverged infrastructure delivers the efficiencies and performance of the cloud, and how it is making a difference in U.S. school districts – today. Essential Skill: Managing Technology and Support Resources
