Deborah Lee James, former Secretary of the U.S. Air Force, discusses how Digital Service teams have affected the way the Pentagon strategizes on technology, and why collaboration between services is important.


The U.S. Digital Service was established by the Obama administration in 2014. In the years since its inception, Digital Services have changed the way agencies develop their technology strategies. The Department of Defense has a robust digital service workforce, including specialized teams covering the Army and Air Force. Deborah Lee James, 23rd Secretary of the U.S. Air Force and founder of the Air Force Digital Service, believes that close collaboration between Digital Services is important to accomplishing each of their missions.   “I envisioned very, very close collaboration. I went to the head of the Defense Digital Service and asked his opinion as to who we can appoint to lead our team in the Air Force,” James told Government Matters. “Really, the Defense Digital Service, this is a team that is helpful to everyone. I was very pleased to see that Ellen Lord, the new Undersecretary for Acquisition and Sustainment, has brought in her own top advisor on software acquisition.”
