Data has long been one of the most valuable, undersold resources that defense organizations possess. Successful organizations collect tons of data every day, typically in silos like training, personnel, equipment, or supply chains. For many organizations, breaking down the barriers separating those silos to use that data to see a larger picture has always been an aspirational goal. With today’s advanced analytic technology, this goal is now within reach. Using predictive analytics, defense organizations can not only look back on past processes to improve efficiency — they can use data to look forward, determine probabilities and make projections.
