US Army Looks to DISA for ERP Migration Aid; Alfred Rivera Comments

ContractSigningThe U.S. Army has enlisted the help of the Defense Information Systems Agency for the service branch’s effort to migrate to new enterprise resource planning programs as part of a potential $846 million contract, C4ISR & Networks reported Tuesday.

Amber Corrin writes the Army wants to transition the general fund enterprise business system, Army enterprise systems integration program, logistics modernization program, Global Combat Support System-Army and the Integrated Personnel and Pay System-Army to the Defense Enterprise Computing Center.

The Army awarded the potential five-year ERP services contract in January to 10 small businesses.

Alfred Rivera, director of DISA’s development and business center, told the publication he intends to “build a center of excellence with a core set of engineers and process folks, along with our implementation guys, that can work directly with mission partners to holistically pull these systems together into the data centers.”

“We see a big opportunity for the services to get some savings behind that, and hopefully they’ll take advantage of that as we build this ecosystem for ERPs,” Rivera told C4ISR & Networks.
