With the plan, defense leaders hope to harness the best that wireless technology can offer. The strategy includes goals for secure information sharing via voice, video and data feeds. It also promotes app development.

The administration will release its Digital Management Strategy today that details 29 goals with deadlines over the next 12 months. OMB wants to set up a FedRAMP-like process for mobile, open a new Digital Innovation Center run by GSA and require the use of APIs.
