These megatrends the ebook examines are:

  • Big Problems
  • ―manifested partly as expanding complexity of either endeavors and firms, as army institutions shape coalitions with one another, and partnerships with a number of civilian businesses and non-governmental organisations

  • Robustly Networked Environments―enabled via the tremendous large availability of complex info and communications applied sciences (ICT) that position extraordinary powers of data construction, processing, and distribution within the palms of virtually someone who wishes them―friend and foe alike
  • Ubiquitous Data―the exceptional volumes of uncooked and processed details with which human actors and C2 platforms needs to contend
  • Organizational alternatives―as decentralized, net-enabled methods to C2 were made extra possible via expertise.
