Rockville, MD (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
Open architecture solutions are critical for reducing program lifecycle costs, and enabling quick technology refresh and upgrades to bring the latest capabilities to the warfighter and national security team. Defense Daily’s Open Architecture Summit uniquely focuses on government efforts to implement open architecture standards and policies across the Department of Defense and other agencies.
Senior defense officials have increasingly identified the open architecture approach as critical in the acquisition of platforms, as well as combat, communication and information technology systems. In doing so, the government has asked industry to lead the way in the development and the innovation required to achieve the benefits of open architecture. An in a time of constrained budgets, experts believe open architecture standards are of even greater importance.
This event marks Defense Daily’s sixth Open Architecture Summit, and with each passing year interest continues to grow as the topic takes on greater priority. “The role of open architecture in the national security acquisition community continues to grow at a rapid pace.
