Bridging the Interoperability Gap
Technology is solving many of the challenges to communications interoperability that have long stymied military planners. It takes a certain approach, however, to bridge the gap between systems and to incorporate legacy technologies alongside newer arrivals. Download this white paper to learn more.
An Enterprise Enabler Whitepaper
Everyone knows stovepipes are bad, but nobody is quite sure how best to eliminate them. Bringing in large systems integrators is a common solution, but that strategy brings its own problems, often including a proprietary approach that prevents easy interfacing with other vendors' solutions. An emerging new model, the enterprise integrator, could be the missing piece of the puzzle.
New products are becoming available to make sense of the vast amounts of geospatial intelligence data, but formidable challenges remain to be met.
The evolution of converged virtual architecture is an outgrowth of efforts to do away with desktops in favor of more efficient, consolidated arrangements. The transition, however, is not always smooth. This white paper explains the cultural change and technology needed to avoid common pitfalls.
Training digital warfighters
War fighting in the enterprise age includes complex cyber and communications systems, but the tactical edge is not a place to learn technical skills. To ensure troops have operational competency before their boots hit the dirt, the U.S. military is exploring innovative training and simulation tools.
DoD's new acquisition model: Joint enterprise licensing
The U.S. military has been under tremendous pressure in recent years to streamline its often bloated buying processes. Now a new solution is coming to the fore. The emerging Joint Enterprise Licensing Agreement, or JELA, invites different branches of the Defense Department to combine their buying power for information technology in order to trim expenses and boost efficiencies
DoD embracing commercial clouds
The virtues of the cloud in general have been thoroughly praised: Flexibility, scalability, ease of maintenance and lower costs. Throw into the mix commercial cloudÂ’s ready-made architecture, with crucial components already in place, and itÂ’s not hard to understand what makes commercial solutions a tempting proposition to some. However, there are key security and collaboration considerations that must be addressed before commercial clouds can find widespread applications in the federal government and the military.
