The Army’s Plan To Move to the Cloud

APRIL 7, 2015

This month, the Army released a formal cloud computing strategy that aligns with thePentagon’s evolving policies and will position it to capitalize on disruptive commercial cloud computing technologies prevalent in the private sector.

In a blog post, Army Deputy Chief Information Officer Gary Wang said the transition “to cloud-based solutions and services advances the Army’s long-term objective to reduce our ownership, operation and sustainment of hardware and other commoditized IT.”

In other words, storing, processing and analyzing the growing amount of information the Defense Department produces in the cloud makes more sense than storing it internally nowadays.
