Defense Daily’s ninth annual Open Architecture Summit, taking place October 18, 2016 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C., will focus on better buying power and business opportunities in the application of open architecture (OA) solutions in defense and national security acquisition. The Department of Defense’s mandate of Better Buying Power (BBP) is the implementation of best practices within the industry to strengthen better buying power. Launched in 2010, BBP includes acquisition principles to achieve efficiencies through cost control, eliminating bureaucracy, and competition.

In 2016, open architecture is no longer an ethereal concept; there are now real-life case studies on how open architecture has impacted the defense industry and increased better buying power. The 2016 Open Architecture Forum will focus on these case studies and high-level strategic updates on programs, projects, and initiatives. The agenda will include:

  • Keynotes from top government officials
  • Implementation case studies and results
  • Flag Officers Panel
  • Open architecture in the cyber environment – threats, challenges, and opportunities
  • Electronic warfare
  • Business opportunities for organizations working with the government

Open Architecture Summit will feature senior national defense and security officers, as well as flag officers from the acquisition community, to discuss the latest efforts in their programs , and take a look toward where open architectures are headed in the years to come. Attendees will:

 

  • Gain knowledge of how the government is implementing open architecture systems and practices and how obstacles are being overcome.
  • Get an understanding of the implications and opportunities for industry and government.
  • Learn how government and industry are seeking to tackle difficult problems and find common ground-particularly on the contentious issue of data rights.
  • Hear from and network with some of the leading proponents of open architecture systems throughout government and industry.
