One thing that comes out of war is innovation. Innovation is the creation of new and innovative ways of doing things. In war, one would want to keep ahead of the your enemy. In many cases, this could mean that you need to be more innovative than your enemy; whether this be by spying, weaponry, transportation, protection, tactics etc etc.
During both WWI and WWII, the level of innovation increased dramatically in so many areas, "computers" being one of them. This podcast states that IBM (a company that makes computer hardware) is said to have been involved in helping the Nazis process their information quicker.
