Federal News Radio: Navy Eyes Cloud Migration Process Streamlining Strategy


U.S. Navy Chief Information Officer Robert Foster has delegated authority to approve requests from naval components to move its systems to cloud-based environments in an effort to streamline approval processes, Federal News Radio reported Monday.

Jared Serbu writes the initiative works to “reduce some of the red tape” for the cloud purchase processes for Defense Department.

New managed service organizations will be established by the Navy and Marines that will aid owners with the migration of government data facility to privately-operated cloud services.

Serbu noted MSOs will assist the contracting process as brokers for commercial cloud similar to what Defense Information Systems Agency handled for cloud acquisitions.

The Navy has started to develop an MSO through a Data Center Application and Optimization office-run cloud store that would help the service branch in it commercial cloud services acquisition and procurement needs.
