Smarter Defense Intelligence

Agencies and military intelligence professions rely on data and analytics to anticipate, discover, evaluate and respond in real-time. This requires the ability to connect the dots, under severe time constraints, while coordinating activity with partners. IBM offers defense solutions to empower the threat analyst or mission personnel while balancing privacy, security and legal concerns with mission effectiveness. In addition, IBM provides a mission readiness solution that helps monitor, maintain and optimize military assets.
