Lt. Gen. Bruce Crawford, chief information officer of the U.S. Army, said the service plans to establish a cloud program office in the next 90 days as part of the Department of Defense’s cloud strategy, National Defense reported Tuesday. Crawford said the military branch intends to release an updated cloud strategy in the next three months and award two contracts for cloud services this fiscal year.

“Our near-term focus is posturing ourselves to leverage the all-purpose and fit-for-purpose cloud hosting capability” he said Tuesday at an Association of the United States Army-hosted event in Arlington, Va.
