1 min read

Aaron Weis, chief information officer at the Department of the Navy and a 2022 Wash100 Award recipient, said a fundamental change in information technology architecture could help DON increase the agility and security of its enterprise network, FCW reported Tuesday.

He pointed to the Navy’s move to implement Office 365 productivity and collaboration tools as part of a broader network modernization strategy during a panel discussion at the Navy League’s Sea Air Space conference.

Weis told the publication that the branch seeks to transform how it operates and protects the network with software-defined technology.

The Navy is working with Leidos to conduct IT modernization efforts under the Next Generation Enterprise Network-Recompete contract’s service management, integration and transport portion valued at $7.7 billion over eight years.
