The great power race to dominate advanced computing technologies – cloud applications, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) – is intensifying. China is seeking to replace the U.S. as the dominant player in these areas. The intensifying competition with Russia and China is a primary reason DoD is seeking to acquire an enterprise-wide cloud computing infrastructure. The key to this capability is the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) program. JEDI is envisioned as the general-purpose cloud, the base to which all other purpose-built clouds will be anchored. But time is of the essence, and any delays in moving forward on creating an enterprise-wide cloud for the Pentagon could put national security at risk. I have written more about this subject here.
