The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and IBM are teaming up on a project that aims to improve data sharing between the group's 28 member countries.
The effort will be developed by IBM at the Headquarters of the Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (HQ SACT) in Norfolk, Virginia.
According to the current plan, an on-premise cloud computing project will network together various command, control, surveillance, intelligence and reconnaissance efforts. The aim is to cut the time it takes to roll out new technologies. NATO has been trying to become more nimble and agile.
Specifically, IBM will develop a computing effort to bridge mission processes securely. If IBM's NATO effort is successful, rest assured Big Blue will be taking similar projects to member countries.
