WASHINGTON, Nov. 18, 2010 — (PRNewswire) — Deloitte has expanded its portfolio of financial and data analytics offerings to include new capabilities in geospatial analytics services.
Deloitte's new service offering will be led by Matthew Gentile, former chief executive officer of Traverse Technologies, Inc., a geospatial analytics firm. Gentile joined the organization as a principal in the federal analytic and forensic technology group within the forensic and dispute services practice of Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP.
Gentile and the entire geospatial analytics team from Traverse, who have also joined Deloitte, will help identify and address performance challenges where geospatial analytics can help federal agencies whose missions demand the collaborative exchange, display and analysis of geospatial data.
The role of geospatial data and technology is growing throughout numerous aspects of government. Homeland security, defense, intelligence, energy, health care, transportation, law enforcement, telecommunications, immigration, and natural resource management are all elements of the federal landscape that increasingly rely on geospatial analytics and visualization to address complex challenges. For example, federal agencies can rely on geospatial analytics to help track and manage physical assets, better understand the flow of money that supports terrorist financing, map the disbursement of funds for government assistance programs, and plan and prioritize recovery efforts for a natural disaster.
"This new service offering uniquely positions Deloitte as a market leader in our ability to share, analyze and visualize a wide spectrum of data, thus enabling decision makers to be more transparent and identify trends not easily seen through traditional analysis," said Greg Pellegrino, principal, Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP and leader of its federal government services practice. "Additionally, offering geospatial analytics services to our clients enhances Deloitte's existing data analytics, forensics and asset management capabilities, and demonstrates our ability to respond to evolving client needs."
"Now more than ever, public and private sector endeavors rely on geospatial data, technology and knowledge, for improving decision making in organizations," said Gentile. "By joining Deloitte's exceptional analytics practice, we are now able to bring talent and experience in geospatial intelligence to federal agencies to help them better achieve their missions."
The new geospatial analytics team will be based out of Deloitte's Arlington, Va. and Boston, Mass. offices.
