The Army is currently executing its unified network plan with the goal of becoming a multi-domain capable force by 2028. The Army will support that network with a multi-cloud, multi-vendor hybrid approach.

Lt. Gen. Bill Bender (USAF, ret.), senior vice president for customer excellence & government relations at Leidos and former chief information officer at the Air Force, explains how this approach will help Army get data to the edge and ensure their cloud environment is secure.

The Defense Information Systems Agency has a new Data Strategy Implementation Plan which calls for DISA to leverage data as a center of gravity. The I-Plan places a key focus on data management. 

Rob Carey, president at Cloudera Government Solutions and former principal deputy chief information officer at the Department of Defense, discusses the organizational alignment needed to execute this type of strategy.
