John Sherman Acting DOD-CIO
John Sherman, acting chief information officer for the Department of Defense, said DOD is considering D Cloud computing as an important part of its strategy to modernize the information technology infrastructure that supports US military operations around the world, reported DOD News.
He told a House subcommittee hearing on Wednesday that cloud technology will help war fighters access data faster as digital platforms become more common in battlefield missions.
“While data management is not directly tied to specific program elements in the 2022 budget request, we identify, evaluate and track our data-related investments through the budget certification process I lead,” added Sherman.
President Biden’s proposal $ 715 billion DOD budget supports cloud-based software projects, which the deputy departmental CIO says will drive the integration of technology processes and the provision of next-generation capabilities.
