The thematic research offers a detailed analysis of the impact of cloud in defense, on how major defense organizations and military forces use it, and how this technology is becoming a revolution in military affairs.

Cloud computing’s importance has grown significantly in recent years. It has enabled the use of shared IT infrastructure and services to create a flexible, scalable, and on-demand IT environment. Cloud is now the dominant model for delivering and maintaining enterprise IT resources, including hardware, software and platforms and tools for application developers.

Cloud in defense is a revolution in military affairs that will transform the battlefield by effectively interconnecting current and future systems, as well as information and decision-making superiority.

The report also includes an in-depth industry analysis, the impact of cloud in defense, key use cases of the forces used in cloud operations and how modern technology could further improve their capabilities.

Scope of the report:

  • Defense organizations started building their cloud computing infrastructure almost a decade ago, with the US forces being at the forefront of the modernization effort. Data are now becoming available both to combat and non-combat organizations within a military structure. That was facilitated by the private sector which opened the way in cloud computing and the Ministries of Defense have benefited from the available solutions.
  • Currently, the challenge is to support the integration of systems and platforms on cloud, to improve the exchange of data among them. Major military forces are going through that process and tests are being carried out to validate the new tactics. It is expected that soon those capabilities will be adopted by more military forces and that is something that will be supported by defense organizations such as NATO.
