The article discusses the U.S. Navy's information technology modernization program that proposes to replace the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) with the new initiative called Next Generation Enterprise Network (NGEN). It notes that the gaps in cross-domain security and in information access and exchange, along with system interoperatibility and responsiveness that does not meet the requirements for warfighters, have prompted the department's need for the new system.
