The DoD Enterprise Architecture Conference has become the one annual event where the architecture and operator communities gather to interact around the role of architecture in enabling a better Defense Department. Hosted by the DoD CIO office, this yearly event takes on a new urgency in 2012 as the budget environment coupled with operational needs means the information environment must do more with less, and faster. Participants at the conference come together for training, information sharing and discussion of Enterprise Architecture practices and requirements.
The theme this year, "Agile and Secure Information Capabilities to the Warfighter and Mission Partners" will provide an opportunity to learn about the DoD CIO Campaign Plan, efforts of military Service and Combatant Commands to use architecture for better decision making, improved operational effectiveness, increased efficiencies and interactions with all mission partners.
The conference features Monday tutorials and three full days of conference sessions from Tuesday through closing on Thursday afternoon. The conference will attract attendees and exhibitors who are interested in collaborating to help DoD do more with less.
