1 min read

Gordon Bitko, chief information officer of the FBI, said at a recent AFCEA event that the agency seeks to improve data management through automation and personnel data literacy efforts, Federal News Network reported Friday.

As part of its overall data strategy, the FBI has several programs to assess new information technology capabilities and “understand what fits into our portfolio best, smartest and quickest,” Bitko said.

Bitko wants to migrate more of the agency’s tools and systems to a cloud environment to help investigators conduct operations with greater efficiency. Bitko cited other FBI data modernization initiatives including workforce training and recruitment, personnel aptitude testing on data analysis skills and the transition of the agency’s next generation identification biometrics platform to the cloud in line with the Justice Department’s IT strategy.
