Business Strategy: 3rd Platform–Enabled National Security

Business Strategy: 3rd Platform–Enabled National Security

This IDC Government Insights report discusses the ongoing shift from 2nd Platform technologies to 3rd Platform technologies and the adoption of innovation accelerators by national security and defense agencies. According to IDC Government Insights, national security and defense agencies are still early in their transition and need a specific technology strategy to maximize the value that these agencies will get from these technologies."Though a number of national security agencies have adopted some of these technologies and innovation accelerators, most of it has been haphazard and lacking a larger context," said Alan Webber, research director, IDC Government Insights. "Much of the adoption has been single mission specific such as with analytics, robotics, and even mobile. Instead, these agencies need a long-term vision for these technologies and need a cohesive understanding and plan to adopt and implement them."
