Jason Gray, chief information officer of the Department of Education, said the department is working to consolidate its operations through a multicloud environment while ensuring that personnel have the necessary tech skills. 

Gray told attendees at the SNG Live: Cloud Smart event that the Education Department recently updated more than 700 of its systems as part of a “tech refresh” effort on cybersecurity, processing power and memory functionalities.

He noted that consolidating cloud environments will help the department reduce its information technology footprint while requiring a smaller amount of certified cloud experts.

“For a future state of where we’re going, I would love for it to be simpler because otherwise you’re having to make sure that people get trained on this skillset and on that skillset,” said Gray.
