Michael Maiorana, senior vice president for public sector markets at Verizon Enterprise Solutions, told MILCOM 2014 conference attendees this week that agencies face a challenge to make sense of information in today’s technology-driven world.
Maiorana told the audience that actionable intelligence is what helps enterprises achieve gains from informed decision-making and situational awareness.
“The digital age that is continually morphing before our very eyes is profoundly changing our personal and work lives, and fundamentally transforming the business of government,“ Maiorana said Tuesday.
An explosion of mobility, connectedness and machine learning technologies is a factor for enterprises to manage with other market forces, he said.
Budget cuts, a growing demand for a technical workforce and long procurement times are creating what he calls a “new normal“ in not just what type of information technology services the defense industry adopts but also how they are acquired, delivered, used and managed.
“Through a continued focus on our partnership, we can collectively harness the power of these trends to drive innovation and discover new ways of effectively meeting organizational objectives,“ Maiorana told his audience.
“Today’s information ecosystem is highly complex and fast changing. Fully leveraging our collective strengths and assets will help us tap the vast potential of the technologies that are at our disposal.“
