His team assessed the technical health and business value of 700 applications, resulting in specific action plans for modernizing, consolidating and eliminating systems. As a result, the Army will save hundreds of millions of dollars. Congress commended the Army for its results and requested that the Defense Department adopt the same approach at the enterprise level. In addition, Swan spearheaded the establishment of the Army's shared-services center for enterprise resource planning and Business Process Reengineering Center of Excellence.
