Today agencies are enjoying while may also suffering from growing data sometimes. In addition to traditional sensors deployed along agency corridors, a wealth of both freely available and paid services offer a multitude of historical and real-time datasets to augment agency sensing capabilities. To make use of this growing data hoard, emerging technologies must be leveraged to extract the actionable data in meaningful ways.

Cloud compute capacity provides a compelling solution to manage this growing data. Particularly, serverless technologies allow agencies to focus on designing systems to address needs without worrying about how many (virtual) servers must be allocated and when those servers need to scale up or down to adjust with fluctuating data volume. The highly scalable nature of serverless technologies in a cloud environment allows for analysis algorithms and dashboards to be built independent of data volume, scaling to meet demand in real time. In this session we will evaluate various real-world scenarios and consider how cloud compute technologies can be used to address agency needs.
