More data was created in the last two years than in the history of humankind—a trend that is only expected to increase in volume and velocity. Advancements in open data, analytic capabilities, and cloud infrastructure options are creating new possibilities to transform and reimagine how data can provide actionable, persuasive insights towards delivering mission-critical results.

09:15-09:55 - Keynote: Developing Data Science Capabilities within the Public Sector
As a Capability Centre for Data Science & Artificial Intelligence (AI), GovTech's mission is to train public service officers to use data analytics and data science in policy formulation, service delivery and corporate services. This session will cover some of the key capability development strategies to transform the public service, such as the competency framework, training roadmap and community building.
09:55-10:30 - Keynote: Self-Service in the Public Sector - Giving Data & Power to the People
The modern analytics platform is one that moves from a traditional business intelligence, IT-driven report factory to a robust, agile, self-service, IT-governed analytics platform. As Gartner stated in late 2017, modern analytics platforms are disrupting both the private and public sectors. Modern analytics platforms, like Tableau, are shifting the power and flexibility of analysis and decision-making from a solely IT-driven initiative to a collaborative approach that puts more capabilities into the hands of actual consumers of information and frees up stretched IT resources to focus on greater initiatives like modernization. Given these benefits, how quickly are public sector agencies adopting one single modern analytics platform and what are the common challenges slowing adoption?
10:30-11:00 - Morning Break & Data Playground (Expo)
Take a short break to stretch and recharge. Have a chat with Tableau experts and our partners at the booths.
11:00-11:30 - Customer Speaker: Data Analytics for Urban Planning
URA has been harnessing data and analytics to enable more data-informed urban planning and deliver better planning outcomes. Hear about how URA has applied insights from data analytics for planning, built in-house development capabilities for digital planning tools, and equipped URA officers with the data analytics skills.
11:30-12:00 - Customer Speaker: Beyond Smart Nation, Towards a Caring and Inclusive Home
National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) is helping everyone living in Singapore to develop lifelong habits of giving, building through an intelligent platform ecosystem (giving.sg) where data is critical to the success. The platform uses timely nudges and simple micro action to help individuals start giving in different ways and at different life stages, while weaving their actions together to form meaningful personal journey. It then connects these individuals with other stakeholders to learn about the community needs, co-create solutions to reach the last-mile and build linkages to achieve sustainable impact.
As giving always points to serving someone or something other than oneself, this will lead us to become a caring and inclusive society.

Track 1: For IT & Technology Folks
14:00-14:40 - IT and the Changing World of Modern Analytics
Modern analytics has arrived. Traditional report factories are rapidly becoming obsolete. IT takes on a new role to enable business agility through self-service, trust, and governance. The days of having to choose between keeping data secure and empowering the business with data are over. Governing data and managing content should be done in collaboration with business stakeholders, as part of a modern approach to Enterprise Analytics. Learn how modern analytics is enabling IT to deliver greater impact to the business, addressing the needs for deployment flexibility, and providing new ways to consume analytics in an evolving data landscape.
14:40-15:20 - Enabling Governed Self-Service at Scale
Today’s organizations seek an approach to self-service analytics that balances the needs of both IT and business users.
Business users in the organization are already using Excel and other tools to answer their questions.
- How do you enable self-service analytics while ensuring data is governed, trusted and secure?
- How can you ensure people have timely access to the right data with the right access?
- How do you provide security and governance while still allowing businesses to interact with data?
Learn how Tableau enables organizations to easily deploy a modern self-service analytics platform that supports freedom and governance.
Track 2: For Data Analysts & Consumers
14:00-14:20 - Experience the Art & Science of Visual Analytics
Is it art? Is it science? Is it both? Visual analysis in an iterative process for working with data that exploits the power of the human visual system. The formal core of visual analysis is the mapping of data to appropriate visual representations. But what exactly engages an audience effectively? Is it beauty? Is it clarity? Is it great storytelling? Join us for this dynamic conversation in today’s world of data visualization.
14:40-15:20 - Analytically Amazing, Visually Stunning
How do you pull as much meaning from data with as little complexity as possible? Usually via a fine balance between visual presentation, statistics, and calculations. Join this session and discuss the intricate means of balancing art and analysis. We’ll show you how to leap from a paint-by-numbers approach to being a full-on data rock star.
