Our Department of Defense (DoD) focused senior analyst Chris Scott has previously provided succinct summaries of the DISA industry day (see DISA Industry Day: Times have changed). Her reporting extracts information we hope is of use to any technology vendor or systems integrator seeking to serve the DoD or Intelligence Community.
DISA is a large organization with many important missions and an array of capabilities they delivery in support of DoD and the civilian leadership of our military. You could study that organization for a lifetime and still have important things left to learn. But don't let its complexity deter you from learning more, there is a great way to orient yourself. Watch DISA's leaders and get their views. Here we highlight the views of Dave Bennett, CIO of DISA.
Dave Bennett, chief information officer and director of Enterprise Services, discussed the convergence of multiple missions from the Office of the Chief Information Officer and Enterprise Services Directorate, the enterprise cloud services portfolio, data center consolidation for JIE and the changing face of the Defense Enterprise Computing Centers (DECCs) as they transition to "core data centers," and contracting opportunities.
