Lisa Costa, chief information officer at U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM), said SOCOM’s digital modernization strategy has four points and those are information discovery and algorithmic novelty, operationalization of innovation, global mobility and cyber dominance, C4ISRNET reported Monday.

There are four areas where SOCOM advances modernization and one area Costa cited is improving the efficiency of data transfers.

“We don’t want to move data around the globe, we want to move algorithms to the data, process that information and then send back only that [data] which is necessary,” Costa said.

Rick Jarrell, chief of strategy within the CIO office at SOCOM, said the command is advancing modernization in other areas, such as adopting the Agile Dagger platform in software development and deploying a cloud-based remote desktop on employees’ personal devices.
