Registration is now open for Hexagon’s HxGN LIVE Resiliency Series, where industry experts will discuss key issues and trends impacting government, transportation and defense organizations in a time of uncertainty.
The series will take place June 8, 10, 15, and 17. There’s no charge to attend, and it doesn’t require a large time commitment; attendees can log in on the days and for the sessions they want.
Governments, transportation providers and defense organizations are under tremendous pressure to keep up with rapid change: changing threats, changing expectations and changing technologies. How to adapt is a real problem.
For instance, the transportation sector, despite the dip that COVID-19 caused for all industries, has seen continuous growth in recent years – and both the positive and negative impacts of that growth. For example, in 2019 in the European Union, rail passenger transportation accounted for an estimated 416 billion passenger kilometers, an increase of 3.4 percent compared with 2018, according to Eurostat, the statistical office of the EU. On the negative side of mass transit, though, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an estimated 28,190 people died in traffic crashes from January through September of 2020, up from 26,941 in the same period in 2019.
The U.S. Department of Defense is looking toward a data-centric digital transformation to deal with the type of change impacting national security. In October 2020, it published a new strategy “focused on accelerating the Department’s transition to a data-centric organization that uses data at speed and scale for operational advantage and increased efficiency.”
Yet, implementing such a strategy can be difficult. According to Deloitte’s Digital Government Transformation survey, nearly 70 percent of respondents said they were falling behind the private sector. Their satisfaction with their organization’s current reaction to digital trends and their confidence in its readiness to respond to digital trends were also low.
It’s for these reasons that we’re hosting the HxGN Resiliency Series, to discuss the issues that are keeping government, transportation and defense decision-makers up at night.
