The Defense Department has announced plans to move up to 80 percent of its applications to the proposed Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure cloud platform, Federal News Network reported Monday.
DoD’s cloud migration goal was revealed after the Government Accountability Office issued its ruling on a protest filed by Oracle over the solicitation for the potential $10B JEDI cloud procurement contract.
“The JEDI Cloud is a critical first step toward an enterprise cloud solution that enables data-driven decision making and allows DoD to take full advantage of applications and data resources,” Heather Babb, a spokeswoman for DoD, said in a statement to the publication.
“The scale of the missions at DoD will require the DoD to have multiple clouds from multiple vendors,” Babb added.
The Pentagon issued in July its request for proposals for the single-award JEDI contract.
