The Deputy Chief Information Officer for Information Enterprise is responsible for integrating DoD policy

and guidance to create information advantages for Department personnel, organizations, and DoD mission partners. DCIO IE focuses on providing the leadership, strategy, and guidance to adopt a Joint Information Environment based on a signal, secure, reliable DoD-wide IT architecture, and key enabling enterprise capabilities.

DCIO IE’s sub organizations include Enterprise Capabilities, such as cloud and big data analytics, the Mission Partner Environment, and enterprise services; Architecture and Engineering, including architecture governance, policy, and framework; Strategy and Integration, which focuses on transitioning to JIE through strategy and synchronization; and Transport Infrastructure, like the Joint Regional Security Stacks, and tactical cloud.

This organization's top priority is fielding the Joint Regional Security Stacks. This leads the DoD CIO's top priority of modernizing the networks. It also works to distribute the Department’s data through cloud computing, and enable DoD to safely share with its multinational partners through the Mission Partner Environment. These efforts are critical to empowering secure, efficient, effective information technology for the Warfighter, because ensuring a strong IT backbone underlies innumerable efforts.
