Thomas Sasala, most recently chief data officer at the Department of the Navy, has joined the U.S. Army as deputy director of the office of business transformation, Federal News Network reported Wednesday.
He said in an email to colleagues obtained by FNN that he will facilitate efforts to reform business practices, advance process optimizations, lead business process reengineering and modernization initiatives and help uphold the service branch business community’s alignment with the mission.
During his tenure as CDO, Sasala said DON created a data management program, standardized data management responsibilities and roles and developed an enterprise data management and analytics platform.
He joined DON in April 2019 as director of data strategy. According to FNN, he helped advance the Jupiter data platform, promote the use of data to inform decisions and address data duplication issues across the service.
Before DON, Sasala spent more than two years at the Army, where he served as CDO and director of the architecture integration center.
