The Defense Department is reviewing results of a test of prototype network-centric applications.
During the 12-hour test, DOD studied whether the apps could help move the right information to warfighters quickly, said Defense deputy CIO Priscilla Guthrie. The strategy is to make data available before it is processed under a program dubbed Horizontal Fusion, Guthrie said at a recent briefing.
Intelligence analysts now collect and process data before pushing it out to users, she said. 'People ought to be able to pull the picture that they need.We need to save the data and allow people to pull the data they want when they need it.'
