cloudITThe Department of Homeland Security‘s Office of Inspector General looks to migrate its local data center infrastructure to a federal cloud computing platform as part of an information technology modernization initiative, Federal News Radio reported Friday.

Jason Miller writes Mike Horton, chief information officer at DHS OIG, said he aims to accelerate the transmission of data across the organization’s network with cloud technology.

Horton told Federal News Radio he also plans to transfer the office’s public-facing website from a private cloud system to a public cloud as well as add new collaboration tools to its email as a service.

He added DHS OIG began to accept proposals for the planned private-to-public cloud migration of its website and could award a contract later this year, Miller reports.

The report said the organization also seeks to implement the LINK and SharePoint collaboration tools in its data center.
