Chief data officers of the U.S. Army and Air Force said both military branches should break down silos to simplify the process of managing and sharing data that could support future joint force missions, C4ISRNET reported Wednesday.

Army CDO David Markowitz said that the service will assign data officers for its warfighting, business, intelligence and enterprise information technology mission areas. He added that his office works to ensure accessibility and understandability of authoritative content.

USAF is also pursuing an approach to help service personnel access useful information and has a laboratory that explores use cases of enterprise data, according to Air Force CDO Eileen Vidrine. Both executives shared their insight at a C4ISRNET-hosted virtual conference Wednesday.
