Abstract:

The National Defense Strategy of June 2008 highlighted the importance of information sharing to national security. The strategy noted that providing secure, assured, and reliable information requires not only technological changes, but also changes that break down cultural barriers impeding progress. With this in mind, the aim of the Assistant Secretary of Defense Networks and Information IntegrationDepartment of Defense Chief Information Officer ASDNIIDoD CIO is to achieve an information advantage for our people and mission partners including multinational partners by leveraging net-centric information sharing. The ASDNIIDoD CIOs vision is that We are about mission success. The mission accompanying this vision is based on the understanding that Information is one of our nations greatest sources of power. Our first and greatest goal, therefore, is to bring that power to the achievement of mission success in all operations of the Department. Delivering this vision means treating information as a strategic asset establishing a robust, reliable, rapidly scalable and interoperable infrastructure and achieving synchronized and responsive operation of the DoD Information Enterprise IE all while protecting and defending information and information systems against adverse events. To realize this vision, the Department must optimize Information Technology IT investments and more rapidly deploy IT capabilities, drawing on a highly skilled, innovative workforce shaped to meet these emerging and expanding mission requirements. While each of these goals is important in its own right, all six goals in this plan are co-dependent and therefore must work together to attain the vision.
