Gabe Camarillo: Army to Invest $290M in Cloud Migration Initiatives

Army Undersecretary Gabe Camarillo said the service plans to spend approximately $290 million on cloud migration efforts over the next few months as it works to become a digital-first organization, Defense News reported Thursday.

Camarillo said “2023 is very much, in my mind, a year of acceleration” when it comes to cloud adoption efforts and that having a steady stream of resources, including funding for the Enterprise Cloud Management Agency, is key to advancing the service’s cloud goals in support of its missions.

As we all know, over the last year the digital tools that accompany our capabilities — software, infrastructure on the digital side, data and security — are all going to be absolutely critical to our ability to win the next conflict,” he said.

In October, Raj Iyer, the Army’s chief information officer and a two-time Wash100 winner, said the service hopes to award the potential $1 billion Enterprise Application Modernization and Migration contract vehicle by the end of June 2023 and intends to operate the EAMM ontract through the Enterprise Cloud Management Agency to streamline the contracting process and inform commands of technical options to facilitate the cloud migration process.
