he ingredient for the effective use of data and analytics that is in shortest supply is managers’ understanding of what is possible. Data, hardware, and software are available in droves, but human comprehension of the possibilities they enable is much less common. Given that problem, there is a great need for more education on this topic. And unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of other good options out there for non-quantitative managers who want to learn about analytics. MOOCs and traditional academic courses mostly focus on methods. And while there are lots of executive programs in “Accounting and Finance for Nonfinancial Managers,” there aren’t any that I know of on “Analytics for Non-Quantitative Managers.”

What is the current “State of GEOINT” and what waits on the horizon? The answers are essential for professional agility in an era of accelerated GEOINT innovation. USGIF presents the 2015 State of GEOINT Report to help answer these questions and support GEOINT Community interests and professional requirements.
This inaugural report began with a diverse gathering of more than 50 geospatial intelligence practitioners Oct. 7, 2014, at the Hyatt Dulles in Herndon, Va. Participants were from academia, U.S. government, and large and small businesses.
Participants were asked to think through a series of open-ended exercises and define which GEOINT topics, concepts, and challenges they considered “hot,” “not,” and “on the horizon.” USGIF asked attendees to continue the dialogue by writing short essays to capture the essence of their discussions. These essays form the basis of the 2015 State of GEOINT report.
USGIF expects this activity to become an annual event.
