In our era of information ubiquity, quick access is no longer enough. We expect our digital tools to connect us to increasingly large interconnected networks of information, people, and ideas through a useful, elegant experience. Commercially, when a company delivers on this promise, we trust, adopt, and even begin to rely on its tools. That’s because these tools connect us to things: the latest news, pictures of family and friends, directions to the office, and more.
These networked, digital platforms and experiences, however, rarely connect us to federal services in a meaningful way. But that’s all about to change.
Booz Allen’s Digital initiative is reimagining, and removing, the previous constraints of a stove-piped federal information solutions infrastructure. By delivering enterprise, integrated digital platforms, Booz Allen’s comprehensive approach to the Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) family of systems is helping to speed connection, integration, and access to federal users.
For example: Booz Allen technology is connecting threat information from every branch of the military, delivering specific intelligence to an analyst from a particular branch. An analyst can now use DCGS information like a traveler would use an application like Google Maps. But instead of travelers rerouting their vehicles when there’s traffic ahead, an analyst can reroute helicopters away from surface-to-air missiles using intelligence gathered from other forces and commands.
