DI2E Plugfest Industry Day

DI2E Plugfest Industry Day

Industry Day Update and presentations
November 24, 2015

Because of greater than expected interest the location of the Industry Day was moved to George Mason University in Fairfax.  Over 220 people signed up to participate either on-line or in person, indicating the expanding interest in the opportunity DI2E Plugfest presents to both Program's of Record and industry.

The purpose of Industry Day was to inform industry of the technical and integration challenges facing DI2E community Programs of Record and their plans to acquire or develop capabilities.

Six Programs of Record, as well as the DOD CIO, Mission Partner Environment, the AT&L Assembled Capabilities Working Group and the DI2E Knowledge Management IPT discussed technical and integration challenges, programmatic milestones, technology insertion points, and solution acquisition and development plans with Industry Day attendees.

OUSD(I) presented an overview of challenges in the Defense Intelligence mission area and thoughts on where the business community can help.  The DoD CIO discussed their top challenges and priorities for Joint Information Environment, Mission Partner Information Sharing and Cyber.

DCGS-A, DCGS-N, DCGS-MC, DCGS-SOF, AF DCGS, and US BICES presented on where their greatest needs are and how they participate in Plugfest and the Mashup Challenge.  The Programs of Record discussed technical and integration challenges, programmatic milestones and technology insertion points, and solution acquisition and development plans. They identified their hard problems and goals for the 2016 DI2E Plugfest.

The event was successful and highlighted specific areas for industry to consider demonstrating in the Plugfest. Besides informing industry, the Industry Day helped shape PoR direct participation in the Plugfest.

Following Industry Day will be Technical Exchange Meetings for those with interests in participating  in the technology showcase for DI2E Plugfest and Mashup.
