Changing user requirements and regulatory mandates are driving a need for new capabilities, requiring a new distributed architecture. Agencies are moving from siloed information infrastructures to integrated and dynamic based on interconnection at the digital edge. A digital edge strategy gives US Federal agencies the required global coverage, ecosystem and partner density. Proven best practices and a step-by-step guide are provided in this playbook.
Government agencies are awash in data. Turning that data into useful information that
officials can use to make better decisions about the programs they administer is a
formidable challenge, however. Thus, the president’s management agenda argues that “creating
a data strategy and infrastructure for the future” is one of the key drivers of government
The Hatch Act applies to all federal employees whether they are a civil servant or an appointed official, but is it enforced equally?

What if you could find out what animals needed attention at the
animal shelter, which sporting equipment was used most frequently
in the city gym, which parking garage spaces were available most
often, and when traffic was the busiest around city hall — all in
a matter of minutes, from anywhere? Although this may sound

more. And they’re not using complicated IoT sensors or hundreds of
software programs to do so — just security cameras.
In this volume, we examine some of the areas where technological innovation in cyber weapons
and networking, data science, even biology will change special operations. We also look at a few
examples of where technological expectation did not match reality. Each of these is only a snapshot of
the sort of new gear that will make its way onto the battlefield, and even into the lives of soldiers when
they return from combat.
