Next Generation Federal Mobile Strategy
In the Fall of 2016, following the release of OMB Category Management Policy 16-2: Improving the Acquisition and Management of Common Information Technology: Mobile Devices and Services, the Advanced Technology Academic Research Center held several collaborative meetings with mobile subject matter experts from government, academia and industry to examine the technical components of the memo and discuss its implications.
Outcome: Using feedback from the group, ATARC proposed a Next Generation Federal Mobile Strategy, which will require an overall vision of mobile in the Federal government, as well as a definition of the mobile ecosystem and its key topic areas.
The Advanced Technology Academic Research Center (ATARC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides a collaborative forum for government, academia and industry to resolve emerging technology challenges.
