DoDIIS Worldwide Conference

Hello there!

I’m going to be heading out in a couple of days to attend the annual DoDIIS Worldwide Conference from April 1-4th. It’ll be in Denver, CO this year. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the conference, DoDIIS stands for the Department of Defense Intelligence Information Systems. This year’s theme is going to be “Advancing Mission Integration” and will be focusing on how defense intelligence infrastructure and information can be shared to provide a more integrated approach to analyzing information. Sounds like the perfect place to talk about how data visualization can help sort through all the complex data to draw out key insights in the government and financial districts and to check out the different approaches used in the field.

I’ll be back with a trip report in a few days, so be sure to check back for updates soon!

New Blog Moderator

Hello Readers!
My name is Andrew Tom, and as previously mentioned, I’ll be taking over as the new blog moderator from now on. I’m excited about driving the blog as I will take over where Elizabeth left off, not only in terms of discussions on advanced visual analysis, but also to bring more attention to how different companies in the information value chain associated with Big Data can work together to provide more compelling experience for end users, as well as how they further the development of visual analysis technology for our development partners.

I’m eager to see the topics we’ll be covering and looking forward to the kinds of discussions we’ll be having!
