Sir, We need a unified Data Centre(DC) for all GoI org to exchange information securely including Defence forces. I suggest that apart from operational and secret Army/AF/IN issues balance be shared on single platform through a common DC to enhance synergy and timeliness. The proposed DC should have adequate security measures such as SOC and NOC as well as encryption. Many IT projects gets shunned because of lack of interconnectivity between Defence forces and civil org like PCDA, CQA, IFA, etc.
