Palantir Technologies, an American software company that builds enterprise data platforms for use by organizations with complex and sensitive data environments, announced last week that it was chosen by the U.S. Army to provide one of two prototype contracts for the Common Data Fabric and Data Security solution to support the network design experimentation for the next network modernization set of technology.

It will be the first time for the company’s Gotham software to be integrated with the Command Post Computing Environment (CPCE), the Army’s mission command software application. The CPCE, which provides improved visualization tools, common applications and new server infrastructure to the commanders, is being tested throughout the Army.  The prototype will offer a single solution that enables commanders to have a global view of operations and make better decisions driven by the data.
