The Coast Guard’s initiative is part of a larger effort to modernize information technology across the DOD enterprise. A modern digital infrastructure is critical to defending against cyber-attacks as well as enabling machine learning and artificial intelligence. In addition, the Coast Guard has been participating in the Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) joint information environment project where the Air Force, Army Corps of Engineers and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) have successfully migrated their office solutions to O365. These migrations have been so successful that the DOD is expanding participation, an initiative known as the Defense Enterprise Office Solution (DEOS).
