Abstract:

The DoD Cloud Computing Strategy has evolved to identify the most effective ways for the Department to capitalize on opportunities and take advantage of cloud computing benefits that accelerate IT delivery, efficiency, and innovation as an Enterprise. Prior drafts were informally coordinated and comments from across the Department were used to broaden the scope and depth of the current document significant modifications and additions have been incorporated. In addition, DoD CIO and Defense Information Systems Agency DISA led a DoD Capability Assurance and Alignment Process CAAP Working Group to refine the approach and clarify required capabilities. The DoD Cloud Computing Strategy has been expanded to address use of commercial cloud services in the Departments multi-provider enterprise cloud environment. Adoption and implementation of commercially provided cloud services are being rapidly accelerated with the maturing of the Federal Cloud Computing Initiative, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program Fed RAMP, and release of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act.
