Bill Marion: Military Services Have ‘Consistent Path’ in IT Delivery

Bill Marion

Bill Marion, deputy chief information officer of the U.S. Air Force, said service branches are aligned in their information technology delivery, FedScoop reported Tuesday.

“Services, cloud, the network, all of those elements – we have a consistent path we’re all going down together,” Marion said Tuesday at the Air Force Information Technology and Cyberpower event in Montgomery, Ala. “It truly is aligned.”

He said the U.S. Army agreed to “leverage” the Air Force’s Common Cloud Environment to accelerate its network modernization effort as well as the latter’s work around enterprise IT-as-a-service and network-as-a-service programs. Marion said the Air Force also plans to field its Cloud Hosted Enterprise Services program into the Pentagon’s $8B Defense Enterprise Office Solution contract for cloud-based collaboration tools.
