Director, Enterprise Cloud Management Office, (CIO)/G-6
Department of the Army
The Army’s new director of its Enterprise Cloud Management Office discusses the plans to implement the service’s cloud strategy and his view that the cloud is an essential tool to achieving successful data management. Despite the COVID-19 response that moved much of the workforce out of the office to remote sites, early efforts at EITaaS pilots are underway and are yielding new insights. Securing the access of those remote workers to the cloud and protecting their data is a high priority. Next up is the development of an enterprise data management framework for the Army.
