The Defense Department is targeting between $10 billion and $20 billion in savings over the next five years by eliminating duplicate databases, Federal News Radio reported Monday.

Terry Halvorsen, DoD’s acting chief information officer, said his office is working with Dave Tillotson, acting deputy chief management officer, to execute the business process and systems review, Jared Serbu reports.

“In some cases, we’re going to look at what we have in our legacy systems, decide that they’re not the answer, and decide it is more effective and efficient to kill those legacy databases and start new,” Halvorsen told the station.

DoD plans to procure new systems instead of shutting down legacy databases in some instances, the station reports.
