Executive Mosaic’s Weekly News Round-Up
“We are swimming in sensors and drowning in data.”
That is how Bob Edmonds (pictured left), vice president of Air Force programs at ITT Exelis, highlighted the dilemma presented by the proliferation of military and civilian unmanned aerial systems in GovCon Exec‘s Spring breakout issue on Big Data and Analytics.
When Executive Mosaic first broke out in front of the New C4ISR in GovCon Exec’s Winter issue, the GovCon leaders we spoke with highlighted how quickly UAS technology was accelerating the intersection of sensors, mobile platforms and big data and analytics.
GovCon Exec caught up with more C4ISR GovCon leaders in theFedTech Soundoff section of our recently released Spring editionto continue drilling down to see how GovCon executives see that intersection evolving.
Insight from Boeing VP and GM for Electronic and Mission Systems Terry Collins, Booz Allen Hamilton SVP Greg Wenzel, Chris D’Ascenzo, Vice President of BAE Systems Intelligence & Security and Biff Lyons, VP of Parsons‘ defense and security sector, made clear that the conversation on integrated frameworks, interoperability and other mission-critical solutions is one worth revisiting.
FedTech Soundoff features further GovCon executive insight into how Bring Your Own Device and FedRAMP are changing the federal marketplace and how businesses need to adjust for continuing paradigm shifts in personal and enterprise technology and storage.
In the increasingly competitive and interrelated GovCon space, we have you covered with executive insight on all fronts. And with big data and analytics, C4ISR is only one of many federal market applications, including electronic health records, international trade and financial systems.
Check out our Spring issue to learn more about where the market is heading and how GovCon leaders are delivering results.
