Workforce Projection

The Challenge

With thousands of employees, federal agencies are challenged to optimize workforce levels to meet current and projected needs. They are tasked with training and maintaining agency personnel while competing with private sector firms for top talent in their industry.

The Solution

MicroStrategy delivers a comprehensive view of an agency’s workforce by blending HR and institutional data from multiple systems – presenting it in a clear and comprehensive manner. Key decision-makers can interact with intuitive visualizations and quickly digest KPIs, allowing them to analyze previously unknown trends and take proactive steps to address them. In order to help ensure that departments are appropriately staffed to meet their objectives, managers can monitor headcount, tenure, retirement rates, and leadership experience. Additionally, by tracking salary levels, promotion rates, and employee satisfaction levels, they can gain an enhanced understanding of how to attract and retain top talent.

Asset Management

The Challenge

Tracking and maintaining assets on this scale is a sizable challenge – assets can be lost, investments may be redundant, and specialized equipment can fall into disrepair due to insufficient maintenance.

The Solution

MicroStrategy solutions enable agencies to obtain a consolidated profile of assets – tracking location, age, value, maintenance history, and operational status. Using advanced predictive modeling tools, asset managers can help optimize their agency’s holdings of buildings, vehicles, equipment, furniture, and other assets while helping to extend their lifespan. With insight on usage and maintenance history, specialists can identify assets with increased risks of failure and take corrective measures proactively. And with visibility into underutilized office space, decision-makers can consolidate facilities or renegotiate lease agreements – reducing costs and streamlining operations.

Digital Credentials

The Challenge

Regulated government environments need to provide employees, contractors, and visitors with secure identity verification to access physical and logical systems. But administering credentials and ensuring that access privileges are accurate is time-consuming, costly, and challenging to manage.

The Solution

Usher provides digital identity credentials to employees, contractors, or other visitors in a regulated environment by utilizing smartphone technology. This solution delivers highly configurable and convenient multifactor authentication with options for push notifications, biometrics, one-time passwords, face-to-face validation, and Bluetooth proximity. It is compatible with leading physical and logical access controllers and integrates with existing mobile applications through APIs. This makes it simple and straightforward to introduce and maintain strong, multi-factor authentication across a broad set of systems. As an additional benefit of this solution, each Usher transaction generates telemetry data that agencies can collect, analyze, and utilize. With new-found insight into access patterns and behaviors, agencies are better equipped to increase security, productivity, and compliance reporting.

Mobile Audit and Inspection

The Challenge

In fulfilling their mission, many agencies and departments are required to complete regular on-site inspections for auditing purposes. Federal agencies are challenged to deploy better tools that maximize inspection team efficiency and success.

The Solution

With mobility solutions built on the MicroStrategy platform, auditors and inspectors can increase efficiency, eliminate paperwork, and reduce administrative delays. These workflow applications put analytics and real-time transactional capabilities directly into the hands of field inspectors, so they can take immediate action from any location. This includes completing onsite surveys, submitting photos, and accessing agency information while on the go -- and even offline. In addition, these tools can help inspectors prioritize their assignment schedules based on urgent pending visits or geographic proximity.

Fraud Detection

The Challenge

Federal agencies are responsible for setting and enforcing effective regulations to protect the public. But to successfully identify fraud and prosecute it, federal investigators need powerful tools and analytics that increase their ability to scrutinize and analyze data.

The Solution

MicroStrategy empowers analysts to combine and correlate data from multiple systems – helping to maximize their insight into transactions that may include fraud, waste, or abuse. Analysts can apply sophisticated algorithms and leverage predictive tools to calculate the potential likelihood for fraudulent activity. By interacting with intuitive visualizations and threshold-based alerts, they can quickly spot behavior outside the realm of accepted benchmarks to promptly initiate an investigation.

Cybersecurity Monitoring

The Challenge

As government organizations become more reliant on data communications and information systems, agencies are challenged to better monitor and defend against increasingly sophisticated hacking attempts from outside forces.

The Solution

With MicroStrategy big data capabilities, federal agencies are able to aggregate and process massive volumes of machinegenerated data from sensors, networking equipment, IT systems, and other sources. By continuously monitoring automated telemetry data, MicroStrategy can alert users when patterns of behavior fall outside the realm of normal trends – providing early warning of potential intrusions, security breaches, or other unwanted behaviors.

Grants Management

The Challenge

Many federal agencies allocate funding in the form of grants and vouchers to select population segments, organizations, or state and local governments. Federal agencies need comprehensive tools to help track grant distributions and measure the effectiveness of those investments.

The Solution

MicroStrategy solutions effectively monitor grant distributions by recipient, category, and location. By tracking data across multiple systems, these solutions provide real-time as well as historical information. Agency personnel can interact with intuitive visualizations to evaluate the geographic disbursement of grant allocations, analyze the distribution of funding by various categories, and drill into historical data for recipients. With this insight, key decision-makers can assess whether investments are effectively accomplishing their stated objectives or if funding is being applied indiscriminately. They can then take this knowledge and apply it when evaluating future grant proposals.

Public Engagement

The Challenge

With public sentiment calling for greater transparency in government, many federal bodies face increased pressure to better communicate information to citizens. Agencies now require modern analytical tools to govern data and easily share it with their constituents.

The Solution

With MicroStrategy, federal agencies can deliver governed access and visibility into the performance of initiatives and programs. Analytics, visualizations, and dashboards can be directly embedded into public-facing websites. Leveraging the comprehensive SDK suite, agencies can deploy the power of MicroStrategy while presenting a customized, branded user experience. And by providing selfservice access to the public, there is a reduction in the volume of information requests (i.e., Freedom of Information Act) agencies are required to address, freeing up more time for civil servants to accomplish their goals.

Secure Vendor Access

The Challenge

Government agencies interact with a myriad of vendors for multiple products and services. The continual process of issuing new credentials, resolving issues related to usernames and passwords, and revoking access privileges places an unnecessary and excessive burden on federal administrators.

The Solution

Facility, operations, or IT managers can quickly and easily issue and revoke temporary digital badges for vendors using Usher. Once installed on a vendor’s smartphone, the vendor can use his Usher badges to securely access facilities, services, and meetings during designated periods of time. Users can conveniently authenticate themselves via QR codes, biometrics, push notifications, Bluetooth proximity, or onetime passcodes. And the agency can retain the telemetry data generated with each authentication – providing valuable insight into vendor access patterns and behavior.

Budget Management

The Challenge

Federal budgets are massive, complex, and challenging to decipher. Given the scale and complexity of government spending at the agency or department level, it’s essential to have powerful analytical tools to monitor and manage budgets while streamlining financial reporting to oversight bodies.

The Solution

MicroStrategy analytic solutions can deliver intelligence on agency performance versus budgetary goals, empowering senior government officials with real-time information derived from multiple systems. With instant visibility into historical, current, and projected spending trends, key decision makers are empowered to take proactive measures to reprogram funds should they be out of sync with initial budget projections. And because the unified data model helps to ensure that agencies operate off of a single version of the truth, government officials can deliver reports and figures with a high degree of confidence.
