Federal Leadership

The department of the Navy has been doing more to use data as a strategic asset, and Chief Digital Innovation Officer Mike Galbraith has been at the lead of that effort for the service. He recently told FedScoop recently everything the Navy does regarding IT is “all about the data.” He continued: “Moving data via our networks and transports, whether it’s with 5G, wide-area networks, other cellular capabilities; storing the data in the cloud; processing the data with quantum computing — it’s all about the data.” And all of those efforts, he said, will be foundational to creating an environment that supports next-generation technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning.
