The Department of the Navy (DON) has issued a memo on plans to conduct a review of the service’s information technology infrastructure portfolio.
The IT infrastructure portfolio review seeks to “identify potential courses of action to improve the value produced by the substantial annual IT spend in order to reinvest in IT priorities and return funds to the broader DON,” the office of the department’s chief information officer said Monday.
DON said the review will involve cross-functional teams that will gather data related to current capabilities, resources and requirements and that it will use the results to inform decisions related to the naval IT service delivery model.
According to the memo, the portfolio assessment will look at four areas: enterprise infrastructure at the Navy and the Marine Corps; software development infrastructure, deployment and operations; data and analytics; and digital workplace.
The department expects the review to generate an inventory of existing IT infrastructure and resources, an evaluation of how the current inventory delivers capabilities, a model of capabilities reflecting cloud-based tech standards and recommendations to the delivery of cloud-enabled IT infrastructure.
