Defense Intelligence Agency to Build Unclassified Software Factory for Better Interoperability
The Defense Intelligence Agency is building a software factory at the unclassified level, whose standards and processes can be adopted by Five Eyes nations when developing their own software, thereby making data sharing easier, DIA Deputy Chief Information Officer E.P. Mathew said in a speech during the recent ACT-IAC Emerging Technology and Innovation Conference.
The software factory is a component of the capability delivery pipeline that DIA is building for better interoperability as part of its modernization goals, Federal News Network reported.
Mathew said there are many advantages to building an unclassified software factory, including inherent security and data standards and the ability to acquire human resources like software engineers at a much lesser cost and without the need to clear them for top secret or sensitive compartmented information. He said the interoperability of data across all clouds makes intelligence data-sharing easier, whether it is with the Five Eyes or other traditional partners.
