Brett McMillen

TYSONS CORNER, VA, June 19, 2019 — Brett McMillen, general manager of Amazon Web Services‘ U.S. federal civilian and ground station unit, said the cloud serves to address a potentially unlimited range of challenges that federal agencies face, including providing access to emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and bolstering the capabilities of the federal workforce.

“[Virtually] every government workload can benefit from running on the cloud,” he told ExecutiveBiz in an interview published June 11, citing cloud-driven programs at the National Institutes of Health, Bureau of the Fiscal Service, National Hurricane Center and Jet Propulsion Laboratory as examples.

McMillen added that using cloud technology with analytics to aggregate and process large volumes of data works to deliver increased insights without driving up cost.
