Session Chair: Frank Schwing

Advances in technology, recent legislative and executive authorities, growing societal challenges, and a new Administration’s priorities make 2021 a critical time for managing data and information that is easy to find, access, and use by all. This session will feature panelists from across NOAA describing their vision of the future of environmental/enterprise data management, and include a group panel discussion to help identify the key priorities, steps, and resources to realize this vision.
