The U.S. Navy is looking to upgrade its information technology network in phases as it transitions operational responsibilities of the infrastructure to its command, Federal News Radio reported Friday.
Jared Serbu writes the Navy and HP are working to move the network into government ownership under the Next Generation Enterprise Network contract.
Capt. Michael Abreau, manager of the Naval Enterprise Networks program office, said Navy plans to operate the network through an IT service management process based on the Information Technology Infrastructure Library, the station reports.
“We’re going to work with our mission partners, our resource sponsors and our service provider to evaluate solutions together that make sense going forward, and we’re going to do it in this ITSM process,” Abreau said at the AFCEA Navy IT day.
Abreau cited cybersecurity services, data center integration assistance and mobile computing transition as services that the Navy is interested in purchasing for the network upgrades, according to the report.
Serbu writes the transition of the network’s full ownership to the government from HP is scheduled to complete in September.
