The Defense Department has released a new document outlining its enterprise IT strategy that seeks to save up to $5.2 billion during the next five years through infrastructure consolidation and increased use of enterprisewide services, reports Information Week.
DOD’s IT Enterprise Strategy and Roadmap identifies 26 initiatives that department officials hope will drive increased efficiency, improve mission effectiveness and enhance cybersecurity, Information Week said. The strategy would resolve the “patchwork of capabilities” that are a direct result of decentralized IT planning, according to the DOD document.
The IT roadmap places the initiatives into five categories: computing services, application services, data services, end-user services and IT business processes, and provides timelines for eight near-term initiatives, Information Week said.
