MODIS 2011 sets the high-level context for Defence to collectively transform the way we use and manage information.

Document description

The Ministry of Defence Information Strategy (MODIS) 2011 sets the high-level context for our continuing transformation of the way we use and manage information, a transformation that underpins successful Defence reform. The Defence Information Vision is:

Agile exploitation of our information capabilities to improve effectiveness and efficiency on operations and in support areas through access to, and sharing of, timely, accurate and trusted information.

The Strategy directs how we will improve our use of information across Defence by breaking down what needs to be done into seven Information Themes. Key high level activities are identified within each theme; the details of each are contained within the Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP).

CIO as the Information Management Process Owner will drive the Information Agenda forward, however we all have a part to play in realising the Defence Information Vision through our collective pursuit of better decisions through better use of Information today, and in the future.
