The management of ICT as a Military Capability has become very complex due to the flexibility that is required to accommodate a wide range of diversified Operational and Administrative objectives, in the military domain.

ICT Operational and Administrative Functional and Technical synergy needs to be achieved through an approach that will ensure an evolutionary movement from the current silo-based mechanisms towards an integrated ICT Capability.

An approach of full life cycle management encompassing the domains of all DOD ICT Stakeholders involved in the management of Functional Requirements, Capability Specification, Establishment and Utilisation is envisaged.
