Former DISA CTO Dave Mihelcic discusses the impacts that enterprise cloud will have on IT at the Pentagon, and what it will provide for warfighters.
While the JEDI cloud contract’s award to Microsoft isn’t a done deal, the naming of a cloud service provider will set into motion some major changes to IT at the Department of Defense. Former DISA CTO Dave Mihelcic says that once the contract is fully in place, the warfighters will see a much faster paced tech environment.
“What we’re going to see is applications that can be developed much more quickly than they are today…” Mihelcic said. “We’re going to see really significantly enhanced capabilities for the guys on the pointy edge of the spear, once the DoD can embrace cloud-based development and cloud based operations.”
