Renee Wynn, chief information officer at NASA, has said her office has begun to leverage cloud platforms in an effort to optimize operations and improve the space agency’s enterprise information technology infrastructure, FedTech magazine reported Thursday.
Wynn told FedTech managing editor David Stegon in an interview that her office also has started to implement an architecture that seeks to equip employees with collaborative platforms for use in instant messaging, telephony, video communications and Web collaboration.
“We want to ensure the infrastructure supports not only internal NASA collaboration requirements, but also external partner collaboration,” she added.
Wynn, former acting assistant administrator at the Environmental Protection Agency, noted that the space agency also has established a laboratory at Johnson Space Center in order to expand the use of Internet of Things platforms within the agency.
She also cited in the interview that big data is one of the areas of data management that she wants to focus on.
