Cloud migration at scale. In 2019, Seay oversaw a critical effort to migrate the Navy’s enterprise resource planning system to the cloud. The ERP system is the Navy’s largest, with 72,000 users spread across six commands. Thanks to Seay’s dedication, the system moved to a commercial cloud 10 months ahead of schedule. Now users can track $70 billion of the Navy’s supplies from a central system. Seay’s work has set a high bar for cloud migration at the Defense Department and demonstrated best practices for launching or accelerating IT modernization projects.
