Enabling Efficient Resource Allocation Decision Making for Readiness & Sustainment
2:55 p.m. ET
DoD leadership has the task of allocating financial resources to optimize modernization, support data-driven decision-making, and thus improve readiness. Panel participants will discuss how the Department approaches investment trade-offs to achieve modernization objectives and the ways in which “enterprise business systems modernization” can improve readiness and sustainment. Other topics will include strategies to streamline legacy system architectures and enable investments in new systems, the impact of the current and foreseeable budgetary environment on these strategies, and existing efforts that may be de-emphasized so DoD can better focus on the modernization priorities.
