1 min read

The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) seeks to update enterprise technology platforms continuously as part of efforts to help the Department of Defense address evolving mission requirements, Federal News Network reported Tuesday.

Raju Shah, director of DISA's enterprise engineering and governance directorate, told the publication in an interview the agency aims to accelerate IT services delivery to support decision-making processes across the DOD enterprise and military.

He noted that the Defense Enterprise Office Solution (DEOS), a suite of cloud-based communication and collaboration tools, serves as the central element of DOD's digital modernization strategy.

An industry team led by General Dynamics‘ information technology business won last year the DEOS blanket purchase agreement valued at $4.4 billion over 10 years.

Steve Wallace, systems innovation scientist of DISA, said in the joint interview with Wallace that the agency should constantly evolve platforms that support enterprise processes.

During GovConWire’s Modernizing Federal Acquisition Forum, notable federal leaders will meet to discuss current modernization priorities, innovative solutions, and future acquisition plans.
