DOD seeks to mesh IT for logistics and operations
'Blurring the lines' isn't something the Defense Department normally aspires to do, but it was part of the theme at a conference in McLean, Va., last month.
The conference, 'Transforming Government,' included the subtitle, 'Blurring the lines between logistics and operations,' focused on innovation and network-centric operations in the military's mission. It was presented by DOD's Office of Force Transformation, the Association for Enterprise Integration and the General Services Administration's Office of Governmentwide Policy.
