Data is a strategic asset. Transforming the Department of Defense (DoD) to a data-centric organization is critical to improving performance and creating decision advantage at all echelons from the battlespace to the board room, ensuring U.S. competitive advantage, noted Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks in a May 2021 memo
to DoD leadership.
The DoD Data Strategy outlines a path toward transformation of the DoD into a data-centric enterprise. It envisions a data environment that makes it easy for personnel to find and access the data they need, no matter where it resides. And it calls for a standardized language to describe data, so users can easily determine where the data came from and its relevance to their mission.
