Federal and state data managers are working under new mandates to provide more open data and greater data transparency. But much of this work is being siloed at the different levels of government. Exploring the possibilities for greater data science collaboration, this panel will be a discussion between senior data leadership in Washington D.C. and Texas. Panelists will provide an overview of their respective federal and state open data strategies, share ideas on improving the user experience and determining their stakeholders, look at new public-private partnership models, and ideate on the future of data collection, data dissemination, and data science in the public sector. *The South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conferences & Festivals offer the unique convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies.
