DoD Seeks to Accelerate Warfighter Data Access With Cloud Tech

Defense Department officials have said they believe an enterprise-wide cloud computing platform can help U.S. warfighters receive mission-critical data faster, DoD news reported Tuesday.

John Gibson II, chief management officer of the DoD, told reporters Tuesday at the Pentagon that data accessibility, timeliness and security are key to gain a competitive edge in the battlefield.

Robert Daigle, director of cost analysis and program evaluation at the Office of the Secretary of Defense, added that adopting a single cloud platform will help the department process data at speed to support combat missions.

DoD aims to release a final request for proposals on the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure Cloud contract in May and name a winning contractor within the current fiscal year.
