1 min read

Ron Thompson, NASA’s chief data officer and deputy digital transformation officer, said the space agency is now developing data policy following a phase of digital transformation research.

He said Jan. 18 at the Advanced Technology Academic Research Center’s Digital Transformation Summit that NASA is now in its fifth year of digital transformation, FCW reported Friday.

Thompson noted that NASA sees intelligent data management as a way to address data publishing maintenance challenges. These challenges include changing the labels and classifications of sensitive data as potentially demanded in the future.

NASA’s directives currently under development are intended to improve how the agency uses data, Thompson noted.
