The FEDSpace Podcast 

The Show That Helps You Understand Federal Data Privacy and Governance

This week on the FEDSpace Podcast, Tom Sasala, Chief Data Officer of the U.S. Department of the Navy (DON), joins the show to talk about how the DON manages data to ensure that higher quality, more accessible information is available for decision-makers.

“The goal here is to empower and enable the entire breadth of the workforce through analytic platforms and through data accessibility platforms to be able to answer their fundamental questions. ”

With mission objectives at stake, Tom and his team must have the right people, processes, and technology in place to achieve their data management goals and support an entire agency with data sets that answer the right questions, at the right time. With a clear implementation strategy in place aligned with the recently released Department of Defense Data Strategy, Tom says the DON has “exciting and meaningful work to do” ahead.
