The U.S. Navy and Marine Corps seek to transition their enterprise data from government-controlled data centers to commercial cloud platforms, Federal News Radio reported Monday.

Jared Serbu writes the services plan to overhaul their Next Generation Enterprise Network contract and open the competition to commercial providers of information technology services.

Navy Deputy Chief Information Officer Janice Haith told an AFCEA event in Washington the service plans to migrate 75 percent of its data to a commercial data center, the station reports.

Haith said the Navy lists 23 companies as potential bidders to host and transfer its data, Serbu reports.
