Government efficiency—Border challenges

Can advanced analytics help federal agencies meet the challenge of unaccompanied children crossing our borders?

Federal agencies have faced an unprecedented challenge in the past decade with increasing numbers of unaccompanied children crossing our borders. In 2013 alone there was a 77 percent increase. Although government initiatives have been successful, case processing and detainment of individuals, including children, with limited identifying information poses more of a long-term, cross-organizational challenge.

Watch this video to see Rocky Thurston, managing director, Accenture Federal Services, discuss how agencies can use advanced analytics to forecast the likely number of border crossings, create event profiles and enable actionable intelligence to improve the way service is provided across the entire mission.
