Army plans to centralize IT management

Army plans to centralize IT management

The Army intends to centralize systems management at about two dozen major commands under the service's chief information officer, to designate a single authority to manage information dissemination and to set up accounts for all Army personnel on the agency's enterprise portal'all by Oct. 1.

The initiatives are laid out in the first Army Knowledge Management Guidance memorandum signed last week by Army secretary Thomas E. White and Gen. Eric K. Shinseki, the service's chief of staff.

'This is about managing information technology in the Army at the enterprise level, not each [individual] level,' said Miriam Browning, principal director for enterprise integration.

Meanwhile, the service has a broader systems consolidation effort under way. In February, the Army will begin consolidating its systems into a single servicewide enterprise. The service plans to finish the systems realignment by Oct. 1, 2002. Lt. Gen. Peter Cuviello, the Army's CIO, will provide a draft enterprise strategy by Nov. 1.
