The Senate on Friday confirmed Lt. Gen. Steven W. Boutelle to become the Army's next CIO.

Boutelle, who last week also was promoted to lieutenant general from major general, will replace Lt. Gen. Peter Cuviello. Cuviello will retire in early July after three years as the service's CIO. Boutelle currently is director of information operations, networks and space in the Army CIO office.

'I think Gen. Cuviello has had a great vision in transforming the Army from a legacy Army into a networked Army,' Boutelle said last week during an interview with GCN.

Boutelle said he would continue Cuviello's efforts to 'seamlessly network the entire Army with the joint world."

One of Cuviello's primary objectives during his tenure was development of the Army Knowledge Online portal.
