CDAO Updates Advana Platform’s Acquisition Strategy

The Department of Defense’s Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office has announced plans to partner with additional vendors to support the Advana enterprise data and analytics platform.

The shift aims to promote competition and innovation in the procurement process for data, analytics, and artificial intelligence tools and services, the CDAO said.

Previously, the General Services Administration’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center primarily provided acquisition services for Advana.

Now, the CDAO said it will collaborate with more DOD-assisted acquisition providers for both large-scale procurements and prototyping efforts to foster vendor diversity.

According to the office, the move aligns with its focus on the Open Data and Applications Government-owned Interoperable Repositories initiative, which is designed to cultivate a competitive landscape for data analytics and AI solutions.

The CDAO said it is committed to ensuring a smooth transition for Advana’s 100,000 users and continued support based on customers’ specific mission needs.

More details on the Advana platform’s future will be revealed at the Global Information Dominance Experriiments Insight Day on July 16 and the CDAO-hosted Advana Insight Day in September.
