Dillahay, president and CEO of NCI. “As the quantity of data being gathered across the federal government continues to surge, faster results, improved insight and more informed decision-making are paramount. Our collaboration with Tanjo will maximize the efficiency and value of our customers’ workforce and data strategies in this regard.”

Combining this capability with NCI’s AI solution set will arm federal workers with automated insight and access to collective knowledge, which they can use every day to solve critical challenges.”
