2023 Defense Software Modernization Forum

Software has become foundational for weapons systems, warfighter capabilities, global defense power and ultimately — our nation’s ability to deliver a more lethal force. In order to achieve this, we have to be faster and more agile than our adversaries. The Department of Defense released its first ever software modernization strategy in February 2022, and Pentagon officials are now exploring options and finalizing plans for implementing the strategy.


According to a memo released by Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks, “The Department's adaptability increasingly relies on software and the ability to securely and rapidly deliver resilient software capability is a competitive advantage that will define future conflicts.” The new software strategy aims to transform software delivery time from “years to minutes” as the DOD works to outpace our adversaries in the future of warfare. 


The ExecutiveBiz 2023 Defense Software Modernization Forum takes a look at the progress the federal government has made in the past year, the challenges ahead and the opportunities we can harness as software modernization remains at the forefront of defense missions.
