NOAA's Data and Cloud Strategies intend to unlock the full utility and potential of NOAA’s massive and diverse data. These Strategies are 'integral to implementing a collection of strategies to dramatically expand emerging science and technology that will drive innovation and guide transformative advancements in NOAA’s science, products and services.' They will also support NOAA's other four Strategies: 'Omics, Unmanned Systems, Artificial Intelligence, and Citizen Science. This session is aimed at uncovering policies, processes, and/or tools that have been developed by Line Offices in support of the Cloud and Data Strategies. This session will consist of 10 to 15 minute presentations.
