Peter Ranks, deputy chief information officer for information enterprise at the Department of Defense, said DoD should “decouple” hardware and software development to speed up updates of systems’ capabilities, FedScoop reported Wednesday.

Ranks said Wednesday at FedScoop’s IT Modernization summit that improved use of software plays a key role in the Pentagon’s “Joint All Domain Operations” approach aimed at linking military operations across ground, air, maritime, space and cyber domains. “We are going to need software to glue those things together,” he added.

He also discussed the need to address outdated software acquisition policies, the cloud and the Joint All Domain Command and Control effort.
