LTG Bruce Crawford, Army Chief Information Officer/G-6, details the Army’s plan to leverage data and the cloud, and how they’re looking for technology talent to bring it about.

The Army is examining how they can use new technology to improve insights across their enterprise, from the back office to the battlefield. Creating this new tech environment requires creating structured data out of the thousands of sources available to the branch. LTG Bruce Crawford, Army Chief Information Officer/G-6, says that finding the workforce to achieve that goal is a top priority for the Army.


“We are moving from an industrial age way of finding talent in the Army into an information age. Enter the use of technology and data to try and inform that,” Crawford said. “You may have heard me say this, we are in the people business in the Army. The absolute most important weapon system for the Army is actually people. And so, that’s a critical focus area for me as I look over the next 10-12 months.”
