GOAL LEADER: Jadee Purdy, Chief Innovation Officer
GOAL DESCRIPTION: This goal empowers decision-makers at all levels in the Installation and Mission Support enterprise to realize the full potential of data to inform their daily activities, enabled by high-quality data analytics products that are flexibly tailored, packaged and scoped to their needs. This goal is achieved when a data culture exists across the entire enterprise.
G1.A – Agility – Grow enterprise portfolio data analytics capabilities by deploying, monitoring and maintaining a data and business intelligence ecosystem and report numbers monthly
G1.B – Proficiency – Target AFIMSC PSU growth of 500 trained users and share analytics best practices NLT Aug 22
G1.C – Community – Grow users from 2,000 to 3,000 by end of CY22
G1.D – Data Automation – Migrate 12 authoritative databases to the AF VAULT (visible, accessible, understandable, linked and trusted) data lake by end of FY22
G1.E – Federate Air Force Civil Engineer and Air Force Security Forces Centers and gain 12 more I&MS data systems/sets of record into the VAULT either directly or federated via ADVANA in CY22
DRIVING THE MISSION
Our work elevates the failing health of Air Force infrastructure, resulting in significant increases to facility sustainment, restoration and modernization funding. We reduce the workload for planners and programmers with financial tools and status of funds trackers. Mission support commanders are aided with tools which enable them to evaluate the holistic health of the base in order to smartly prioritize funds to enable a risk-balanced portfolio at the base level.
2021 PROGRESS & ACCOMPLISHMENTS
We exceeded our goal of growing up to 1,000 users during the year, due in part to the 15 training courses we offer each month and monthly collaboration opportunities with the Air Force Chief Data Office; Air Force Studies, Analyses and Assessments; and Tableau. This Air Force wide “Collab Lab” has seen more than 300 in attendance during our first three months alone.
The core work of the data analytics team supporting AFIMSC’s Installation Engineering Division was again a featured element of the Air Force Infrastructure Investment Strategy and featured at the service’s fall meeting of its most senior leaders, called Corona.
Our agility makes it possible for Airmen to be trained in basic data analytics which aids in mission accomplishment by reducing staff time and helping with timely, financially sound decisions.
GOALS FOR 2022
Our aim is to advance data analytics at the AFIMSC PSU level in order to better advance their critical mission sets with cutting edge business intelligence applications. With an investment in data analytical capabilities, products and training using data unique to each PSU, we hope to enable them to compete for greater resourcing and fight for critical projects across the enterprise. We are essentially a combat multiplier between the PSU functional community and their Headquarters Air Force partners deploying data analytics to achieve these goals.
