US IT Dashboard
In 2009, the US IT Dashboard was launched ‘to provide Federal agencies and the public with the ability to view details of Federal information technology (IT) investments online and to track their progress over time.’ A performance audit by the US Government Accountability Office outlines how the IT Dashboard operates.
We have been web scraping this information for >6 months and it provides a rich seam of insights into the challenges associated with IT project delivery, average delays, lead indicators and correlations. The dataset is much larger than the Australian ICT dashboard which provides an opportunity to delve deeper into portfolio segmentation, sentiment analysis and use this information to support benchmarking. We will also explore how machine learning may be able to be applied to predict future project delivery performance, identifying specific areas of interest.
