The Defense Information Systems Agency said it doesn't expect the demand to be as great as initially thought as it developed a contract worth $450 million.
The platform, called Acropolis, is initially being used only for network operations and cybersecurity data, but officials plan to expand it to help solve big data challenges around financial and acquisition information.
The Defense Information Systems Agency says an eventual commercial cloud buy probably won't be bundled into a single contract vehicle, but in the meantime, DoD needs to work through challenges involving security, approval policy and network operations.
Director of the Defense Research Projects Agency Director Arati Prabhakar says DARPA's budget wasn't decimated by sequestration, but it is being slowly eroded. The Office of Naval Research and the Marine Corps team up for technology demonstration. John Moniz, ONR program manager, says marines on the front lines can get real-time data using smartphones. At the recent AFCEA Mobile Symposium, Defense Information Systems Agency officials talk about mobile security possibilities.

As the Defense Department builds out a technology infrastructure that's designed to be the latest generation of commercial mobile devices into users' hands, it's still unsure how to meet a key security requirement: identity management systems that comply with the military's existing requirements for secure user authentication.

The Defense Information Systems Agency took two big steps toward consolidation of information technology infrastructure before the government shutdown in October. Data centers in Dayton, Ohio, and Chambersburg, Pa., were closed on the first of the month. Functions at those centers were moved to other Defense Enterprise Computing Centers (DECCs).
A mentor-protege program is in the works at the Defense Information Systems Agency. Director of Small Business Programs Sharon Jones hopes it will be ready for businesses to participate by fiscal year 2015.
Data center consolidation paving the way for JIE.
On this week's Agency of the Month show, Jennifer Carter from DISA discusses how her office is working to get the latest technology to war fighters as quickly as possible.
Brigadier General Brian Dravis, director of the Joint Information Environment Technical Synchronization Office, says he was skeptical of the JIE initiative at first but, after four months on the job, he's now very confident the department is getting it right.
