Defense IT: Priorities and Strategies, 2016 and Beyond
Published: December 18, 2015
Deltek's Defense IT: Priorities and Strategies, 2016 and Beyond examines the factors shaping the DoD’s information technology environment, explores IT investment areas, and identifies future defense IT priorities.
- Easing budget pressures in FY 2016 and 2017 will lend predictability to the development of DoD’s Joint Information Environment (JIE) effort, enabling funding to be directed through tech refresh budgets to high-priority efforts like Joint Regional Security Stacks (JRSS) and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) implementation.
- The FY 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) centralizes cyber acquisition authority within USCYBERCOM and authorizes multiple major procurements to enhance DoD’s ability to defend, retaliate, and operate within cyberspace.
- Multiple organizations across the DoD (including Army, DLA, DISA/GSA) are competing or considering cloud specific contract vehicles to meet defense-specific needs.
- Application rationalization continues to pose a major challenge for the Army, Air Force, and some Defense Agencies (i.e., DHA). The problem is less acute in the Navy and Marine Corps.
- Defense customers are very interested in big data solutions delivered via the cloud, particularly security, business, and health IT analytics.
- The DoD has made progress in establishing enterprise mobility solutions, however each of the armed services is addressing mobility in its own way.
This report explores how current factors are shaping IT investment in the following high-priority areas:
- The Joint Information Environment (JIE)
- Cloud Computing
- Big Data
- Business Systems Modernization
- Health IT
- ISR R&D
