Introduction to Data Management

This Online Training (OLT) course explains why an Intellectual Property Strategy is required by DoDI 5000.02 and Defense Acquisition Guidance, to identify and manage the full spectrum of Intellectual Property and related issues including the technical data, computer software deliverables, patented technologies, and appropriate license rights with these forms of Intellectual Property from the inception of a program through the complete life cycle. The Intellectual Property Strategy is the Program Manager's approach to managing the Intellectual Property needs that will affect the program's costs, schedule and performance. The strategy needs to be captured as part of the program's documentation, i.e., summarized in the Acquisition Strategy and presented with the Life Cycle Sustainment Plan. Critical to enhancing support throughout the system's life cycle.





The target audience for the DM CLMs includes Program Managers, Systems Engineers, Engineers, Contracting Professionals, Logisticians, Product Support Managers, Data Managers, and Intellectual Property (IP) Attorneys.
