Published: December 20, 2016
Deltek's Defense IT: Priorities and Strategies, 2017 and Beyond report examines the factors shaping the DoD’s information technology environment, explores IT investment areas, and identifies future defense IT priorities.
Facing uncertainty from the upcoming presidential transition, the Department of Defense (DoD) will continue efforts to transform its IT ecosystem into a unified Joint Information Environment (JIE) in as cost-effective a manner as possible. The next phase of the JIE will focus on completing the rollout of DoD’s new single sign-on security architecture and maturation of the Joint Regional Security Stack-based firewall to provide a secure networking environment. Parallel investments in cloud computing, big data analytics, enterprise mobility, and unmanned systems will merge with the DoD’s efforts to stand-up the JIE, providing opportunities for the department to leverage emerging technologies. Evolving research and development efforts, acquisition policies, legislative priorities, a fluid cyber threat environment, and rapidly changing technologies all help to shape the DoD’s vision for its future IT ecosystem. This report examines DoD’s efforts to increase efficiency and reduce costs while weaving together innovation and critical capabilities that support the its mission and strategy going forward.
