Problem Statements:

Problem Statement #1

Generative AI

Problem Statement: Recent improvements in generative AI models have very quickly resulted in an explosion of use cases for apps like ChatGPT and Dall-E. It is becoming clear that the ability to create original content using AI is going to change the way business is conducted in every industry. DISA is investigating how we can train a model like GPT-3 using DoD data to deploy a number of uses such as creating and validating code, identifying threats and vulnerabilities, and improving user and customer experiences in getting answers to everyday questions and basic troubleshooting queries.

Why This is Important: The DoD needs to leverage accelerated data access solutions to establish a continuous data pipeline across global and hybrid data sources to feed AI models and analytics platforms. We need to understand the considerations for deploying future-ready AI programs and utilize AI models to effectively detect cyber log data threats and increase our analysts' capability in defending the DoDIN.

Problem Statement #2

Measure What Matters – Key Performance Indicators

Problem Statement: Leaders and employees are expected to set broad-reaching goals -- but how is the agency measuring performance? How does DISA know if it has accomplished its mission?

Why This is Important: Key Performance Indicators starts with having something to measure first. If you can't measure it, then you can't track it. And if you can't track it, you won't achieve it or will achieve it most inefficiently. DISA must invest in scalable and repeatable tools to help leaders and individuals set objectives and measure key performance indicators to fully understand the agency's IT, program, and project investments.

Problem Statement #3

IT Investment Optimization (Technical and Business)

Problem Statement: Is the DoD/DISA using its invested IT to its full potential?

Why This is Important: With the hundreds of IT vendors that help to power DISA services and internal business operations, it is impossible to know all the terms and conditions of a given service or software. DISA must divest from technology that no longer efficiently and effectively solves the warfighter's problems. The agency must also determine if it currently offers redundant systems or tools that should be removed to simplify operations and reduce costs. DISA requires a detailed insight into its IT investment to measure its effectiveness and extract the best value for mission partners.
