Adm. Jonathan Greenert, chief of naval operations, has highlighted the U.S. Navy‘s focus on information or data as part of a transformation framework and program for workforce development, Defense One reported Monday.

“Control of the information is going to be the key to the future,” Greenert said at an event last week, where he also noted the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command‘s role in facilitating information dominance.

Bob Brewin reports that the service’s transformation plan for years 2014 to 2016 aims to establish a business intelligence system and a workforce dedicated to data and analytics for the Navy and Marine Corps.

The BI system “will enable users from across the business enterprise to access rich information to analyze, report and present in a user-specified format,” the plan states, according to Defense One.

Brewin writes that it also calls on the Navy’s chief information officer to lead efforts on instilling a “cost-conscious culture” at the service regarding IT systems and infrastructure.
