Cos DiMaggio, chief technology and strategy officer at LMI, told attendees at a company-hosted event that LMI aims to update its traditional approaches to data analytics to better help federal clients address future threats.
DiMaggio said during the LMI Research Institute Workshop at the firm’s Tysons Corner, Va. headquarters last week that while traditional methodologies have been effective, LMI needs to leverage the “vast amounts of data” it can access to improve its predictions of emerging attacks, according to an LMI press release published Tuesday.
Josh Wilson, vice president for advanced analytics at LMI, noted that the firm intends to align its data, modeling and development activities to deliver analytics-based insights to government customers at a rapid pace.
“Metrics like metadata coverage and data quality can help diagnose issues, but time to insight is the truest measure of effectiveness,” he added.
According to Sharon Hays, a senior fellow at LMI, the firm aims to make its customers “feel less overwhelmed” by massive amounts of data and analytics tools to help establish strong operational foundations.
“Organizations that predict future technology capabilities can make informed investment decisions, minimize risk, and gain a competitive advantage over adversaries,” she said.
