The Internet of Things (IoT), combined with myriad virtual service offering, are enabling organizational scalability in our post-pandemic world. Furthermore, the technologies underpinning this ubiquitously connected landscape serve to enhance an information-driven analytics lifecycle approach in terms of how data is generated, collected, processed, used, and analyzed to achieve mission goals. As such, the automated aggregation and manual curation of data can be a key differentiator as our Nation seeks to enrich its critical infrastructure sectors and become more secure, resilient, and modern.
