He completed the migration of 16 data centers to two enterprise centers, for an expected savings of $2.8 billion through 2030. He transitioned more than 100,000 DHS employees to a private cloud email service and launched a platform as a service that supports Linux, open-source and Wintel environments at a cost equal to or less than what is commercially available.
