ADAPT+C: A Framework for Building a Data-Driven Organization

10:45 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

Understanding that no two organizations are the same, and there are no “one-size-fits-all” solutions, Booz Allen uses a framework known as ADAPT+C to address an organization’s most critical analytics problems with a “best-fit” approach. This presentation covers the six components to ADAPT+C and how this framework can be applied to organizations of all types and sizes to help guide them in their data-driven journeys.

A203. Designing for Speed & Scalability

02:00 PM2019-05-222019-05-22

Wednesday, May 22: 2:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.

There are new technologies that contribute to speed and scale of a modern data platform. But as data size and complexity increase with Big Data, data quality and data integration issues must still be addressed.

Designing a Fast, Scalable Data Platform

2:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.

Similar to many other mission-critical data management situations, clinical trials are fraught with missteps and data quality issues. This presentation focuses on the architecture of a modern, cloud-based, real-time data integration and analytics platform that ingests any type of clinical data (structured, unstructured, binary, lab values, etc.) at scale from any data sources. Attention is paid to assembling the architectural building blocks of a modern data platform, including the benefits of a “serverless” data pipeline, cloud architecture and deployment, microservices, continuous integration and deployment pipeline, platform scalability, data governance, and master data management.

A204. The Rise of Knowledge Graphs

03:00 PM2019-05-222019-05-22

Wednesday, May 22: 3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.

The ability for knowledge graphs to amass information and relationships and connect facts is showing potential for a range of use cases.

From Structured Text to Knowledge Graphs: Creating RDF Triples From Published Scholarly Data

3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.

For publishers, content is the most important data asset. However, journal articles (and other content) are expressed in formats ideally suited for transmittal and display—not as data for analysis. By leveraging the structure inherent in scholarly published XML content, we can create structured data in RDF for analysis. Further, we can link out to external resources as linked data to further enrich the content-as-data assets and provide a rich analytical environment.
