Chuck Elmore, chief information officer at the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations, plans to consolidate the organization’s enterprise network into the military branch’s AFNet infrastructure in the next year or so, Federal News Radio reported Friday.
Jason Miller writes AFOSI has already migrated about 20 percent of its network into AFNet as part a network consolidation effort.
“Once we collapse this network, we basically hand over our local staff, all of the investigators and analysts and folks that are in the field, to the local base for them to now become the maintainer for those folks,” Elmore told the station.
He added AFOSI also seeks to build a single database system for information that the organization collects to facilitate manpower, budgetary and mission planning activities.
His office is also working with other military commands and agencies to identify strategies to meet a January 2017 deadline for a Defense Department-wide implementation of Microsoft Windows 10 operating system, Elmore noted.
