DoD said Wednesday the Defense Innovation Advisory Board will work to identify best practices for iterative product development, data-based decision-making, enterprise information sharing and utilization of mobile and cloud computing applications.

Carter has appointed Eric Schmidt, executive chairman at Google parent company Alphabet, to serve as chair of the advisory board.

The group will comprise up to 12 members who have government and industry leadership experiences and draw on management and technical expertise from Silicon Valley and other technology communities.

The initiative is part of Carter’s efforts to strengthen collaboration between DoD and private sector.
