Today, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is taking significant steps to modernize existing systems, opening the door for the use of emerging technologies to increase speed and agility. Accelerating adoption of cloud technologies is critical to the DoD’s ability to maintain the long-term strategic advantage of US military forces.
