Overview

Achieving full mission readiness is becoming increasingly complex and requires dynamic defense technology solutions. Securing and protecting people, the nation, and information is impacted by a multitude of challenges including COVID-19. New threats and domains for warfare continually emerge, including cyber and space along with disruptive technologies, like AI and Quantum. Dealing with these threats necessitates using data as a critical enabler for information driven operations.

IBM can help you transition to an advanced hybrid cloud-based environment built on technology that is designed for your mission, including AI, SAP S/4HANA and "cloud to the edge" innovation. Through the IBM cloud management capabilities including Red Hat OpenShift®, you can securely access data anywhere within this new environment, regardless of cloud provider—or even if the information resides on in-house systems.
