Aaron Weis, the chief information officer of the Department of the Navy, has signed a design concept outlining an integrated framework to achieve digital modernization goals across the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.
The Capstone Design Concept for Information Superiority serves as an integrated framework for accomplishing DON’s vision to move any information from anywhere to anywhere in a secure manner, the Navy said Tuesday.
“Successful completion of our mission to modernize, innovate, and defend our information to achieve a digital edge that no adversary can match depends on our ability to design, develop, and deploy the best technical solutions,” Weis, a three-time Wash100 awardee, said.
The guidance focuses on the optimization of the DON information environment for cloud, the adoption of enterprise services and the implementation of a zero trust architecture to achieve operational resilience and improve customer experience.
DON will release a supporting major design concept document for each of the three objectives in fiscal year 2023.
“We need to design to ensure resiliency, efficiency, effectiveness, and value, so that sailors and Marines can gain and maintain decision advantage,” said Jane Rathbun, chief technology officer at DON.
