T. Kevin Carroll was tapped this month to head the new Army Enterprise Information
Systems office. The organization was established to lead a project integrating
the Army's information systems into a comprehensive infrastructure.
The project, known as the Army Enterprise Infostructure Transformation,
is intended to reduce the cost of maintaining information systems while
improving access to information and applications across the service.
"This is an opportunity to approach things in a truly enterprise manner,
which is a really big change," said Carroll, who was program executive officer
of Standard Army Management Information Systems.
