Taking Control of Your Data

Years of explosive data growth have created an unstructured data nightmare for organizations across the DOD community. Data growth is predicted to be at 40 percent a year for at least the next decade. This data will be scattered across private, hybrid and public cloud architectures, making it difficult to access, manage and secure. The reality is addressing today’s data deluge takes more than storage capacity. Rather, DOD organizations must find a way to identify and protect their most critical information while also eliminating information that lacks value. In this webcast, Col. Linda Jantzen, Acting Director, Army Architecture Integration Center and the Army's Chief Data Officer, will discuss the service’s forthcoming data strategy and its potential applications.


Storing and Managing Data in the Age of Data Deluge

Data is exploding exponentially. Nobody knows that better than the defense and intelligence community. Along with an ever increasing time frame requirement for data retention, ISR systems today have multiple platforms hosting multiple sensors generating and collecting data with ever increasing resolution and richness. Such growth requires a new and innovative approach to data storage, one that bridges the gap between active performance and archival costs.


The DOD Workforce: Leveraging the Mobile Advantage

Without a doubt, mobility has become a critical component of the defense workforce. Organizations are looking to leverage the latest generation of mobile technology to provide their employees with ready access to the information and applications they need to do their jobs. But mobile initiatives must be undertaken with an eye towards privacy, security and performance. This is especially the case when employees are using the same device to access both professional and personal resources. In this webcast, Dr. Ray Letteer, Chief of the Cyber Security Division at the U.S. Marine Corps, will discuss how defense organizations can address these issues.
