Bruce Crawford, Paul Puckett: Army’s Enterprise Cloud Office on Track for Modernization Efforts

Lt. Gen. Bruce Crawford, the U.S. Army’s chief information officer, and Paul Puckett, director of the service’s Enterprise Cloud Management Office, said that the new unit is “functionally operational” amid coronavirus concerns, FedScoop reported Tuesday.

Crawford and Puckett recently issued a joint statement saying that the ECMO is working on improving telework capabilities through cloud technology in order to push through with its data-related initiatives despite the current health crisis.

They noted that ECMO personnel have adjusted to telework settings and are working on “accelerating our adoption and optimization of cloud computing and modern technology.”

The ECMO, created in November, was initially slated to be fully operational in March. According to FedScoop’s report, the Department of Defense previously implemented technologies such as a Microsoft Office-driven Commercial Virtual Remote Environment to support telework setups.

Dana Deasy, the DoD CIO and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient, also created a Telework Readiness Task Force earlier this month to address remote working concerns.
