Quotation of Stephen Cambone
Our focus is on outputs rather than inputs.
Quotation of Stephen Cambone
Over the course of two years, we arrived at a point where we began to look at the value added by making information more easily accessible across the intelligence community, both defense and national.
Quotation of Stephen Cambone
So we have a group within the office that is devoted to support for the war fighter. That's, of necessity, an operational and tactical level of concern.
Quotation of Stephen Cambone
That is really not much different from the search engines that are being constructed today for users throughout the entire world to allow them to search through databases to access the information that they require.
Quotation of Stephen Cambone
That's driven by any number of factors, the most prominent of which have been the combat experience of two major campaigns - one in Afghanistan and the other in Iraq - and the ongoing demands of the global war on terrorism.

Quotation of Stephen Cambone

We've complemented that with a second office to think about how we need to prepare ourselves for that period 10 or 15 or 20 years from now, by way of investment in our technology, our organization and our people.
Quotation of Stephen Cambone
When you live in a networked environment, it's possible to separate data from applications.
Quotation of Stephen Cambone
Where we have the choice between putting a dollar against those that are going to advance horizontal integration and those that are going to sustain current capability, we'd rather put them against the horizontal integration activity.
Quotation of Stephen Cambone
Where we want to be focused is on whether the product is appropriate and useful and is delivered in a timely way and in a format that is useful to the user, not whether we have succeeded in increasing budgets or increasing manpower or the number of reports that we have generated.
