The world's critical government agencies, commercial institutions, and philanthropic organizations have the data they need to answer their most complex questions. But without the technology to manage that data, these organizations are powerless to use it effectively.

Palantir Technologies builds enterprise software—the Palantir Platform—that transforms how organizations understand and use their data. From our roots in intelligence and defense to new frontiers in aerospace, manufacturing, and beyond, we partner with our customers to solve their hardest problems by deploying our software against an evolving range of mission-critical challenges.

Join us on June 28th at GovCon, a forum for discussion about data and technology, and how Palantir is changing both. Hear from customers from the public and private sectors about how Palantir is transforming their organizations, learn about the latest innovations in product from Palantir engineers, and interact with peers from the government community.

We hope to see you on June 28th.

Featured Speakers

Palantir GovCon will feature speakers from a range of industries and backgrounds. This includes talks from our customers and industry partners about the real-world impact of Palantir's software platform, and presentations from Palantir engineers and subject matter experts on the evolution and continued development of the platform. This page will be updated as new speakers are added to the line-up.
