DISA wants more info on mobility of the future has an update on the Defense Information Systems Agency source sought notice we ran a couple weeks back.

New information out includes a DISA app store request for information. One challenge is attracting developers given the military’s high-security requirements.

Some other challenges include integrating aps with both DOD and commercial systems, hosting apps in a secure environment and developing apps across Microsoft, Apple, Android and Blackberry operating systems, according to the FCW report.

DISA also is looking for a desktop replacement Windows tablet that would support email, chat and other applications.

And finally, while no DISA customer has asked for HTML 5 application support the expectation is that it will be a future requirement.
