Data Rich and Information Poor (DRIP): The Adversary of Lethality

No! Who would want to perpetuate the problem?!

“Despite the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure being validated by the Joint Requirements Oversight Council, it still faces opposition from Congress and some in industry who seek to perpetuate the problem, and their government contracts, by obfuscating any simple solution to the state of being data rich and information poor.”

And the final recommendation is just an authoritative EDW. See that go on a tailspin before.

Mission capability delivered at startup speed

“At a speed and quality never before possible in major defense programs”? Definitely possible. At startup speed? A crock of shit.  “With intense focus on user-centered design, everything the AOC does is now war fighter driven …” Can you say FCS all over again? 

I remember the day the management declared “we are a startup now.”

So  now CMM/CMMI level 5 doing MVP to life/combat critical systems of systems!

Raytheon is collaborating with Silicon Valley’s Pivotal to deliver defense software on timelines measured in days, not years.
