DISA Develops Commercial Cloud Criteria

DF-ST-87-06962The Defense Information Systems Agency has developed a process for gathering and assessing cloud computing requirements and formed criteria to evaluate cloud services against contract requirements.

DISA reached the initial operating capability phase nearly 10 months after Teri Takai, Defense Department chief information officer, designated DISA as the Pentagon’s official cloud broker, DISA said Tuesday.

As cloud broker, the agency is responsible for acquiring multi-provider cloud computing products and services to meet objectives for the future Joint Information Environment.

The agency also said it is developing an enterprise cloud service catalog, as well as forming model contract language for implementing a cloud security model and for using commercial cloud services.
