White Paper on IT Modernization

The first White Paper on IT Modernization has been published and is available on IT Modernization site.

The objective of IT Modernization is to transform the way in which IT services are provided in NATO; to change the model where IT services are provided locally, using local resources, to one where resources are treated as global, pooled enterprise assets: it represents the first step of NATO's journey to the cloud.

IT Modernization aims to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of NATO's Information Technology by:

1. Renewing obsolete IT infrastructure and reducing the heterogeneity of hardware and software assets;

2. Quantifying and increasing the availability of service levels;

3. Implementing NATO-wide Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery capabilities.

4. Enhancing the Information Security posture;

5. Increasing operational agility and flexibility by enabling reallocation of resources as dictated by the operational situation;

6. Bringing new ways of working by enabling a mobile work force; and

7. Reducing the manpower and operations and maintenance costs required to provide and maintain services.
