The U.S. Army aims to grow its use of data and analytics in its evaluations of new weapons systems and efforts to develop new resiliency features for the force, the branch’s deputy chief information officer said Wednesday.

Gary Wang also told an AFCEA chapter-sponsored “Service-strategic IT and Cyber Initiatives” panel data and analytics could aid decision-making processes in the Army’s purchases and support Defense Information Systems Agency‘s effort to meet cost efficiency goals.

The Army must “inject behavioral economics in government and incentivize returning money,” Wang said.

Wang outlined his idea of a three-stage process that starts with data collection, then shifts to efforts to derive information and a final phase for Army leaders to gain knowledge and insights.
