Gary Wang, deputy chief information officer of G-6, has announced the release of the U.S. Army’s new cloud computing strategy to schedule resources in order to fulfill mission requirements.

Wang wrote in a blog post published Thursday that the Army works to modernize its network and develop processes in order to leverage Defense Department-approved cloud service providers.

He said the service aims to align cloud services to mission requirements and protect critical information from threats using security controls.

“The Army is working with key mission partners to enable success of a cloud-enabled network,” Wang added.

The Army is developing a commercial cloud services provider policy guidance that Wang says “outlines requirements for acquisition and use of off premises commercial CSPs, and provides a high-level overview of the Army applications migration process flow.”

Wang also said the Army will need to invest in network infrastructure security, application migration and continuous assessment of potential vulnerabilities.
