RDML Tighe - BIG data
That's the next step, Tighe said, and it's a lot easier said than done. The Navy's IT architecture isn't poised to free the data from the systems that house it, and neither are its policies.
"What we're thinking is along the lines of a big data-type approach," she said. "We need to ingest data in a way that lets us understand it well and share it across a number of different mission areas. We need to get to a more standardized way of dealing with data, and particularly big data."
Tighe said the big data issue isn't really a technological problem, as Amazon and Google have proven with their own decentralized cloud based information systems. Rather, it's a policy problem the Navy, and DoD as a whole, need to overcome by rethinking things such as identity management, and collapsing networks that don't inter-operate with one another.
