Krieger portraitArmy Enterprise Email migration will soon be underway as the final testing nears completion.   The migration for CIO/G-6 and headquarters elements at NETCOM and RDECOM is now scheduled to begin Feb. 15.   CIO/G-6, DISA, NETCOM and 7th Signal Command leaders advised adjusting the scheduled start date to reduce the operational impact of the migration. We remain on target for achieving our overall goal to complete migration by Dec 31, 2011.

We have completed the Outlook Web Access test with no significant issues. NETCOM also recently hosted a week-long training session for the S6, G6 and NEC personnel who will lead the migration in the field. 
 
The bottom line is we will move forward with Enterprise Email only when we are confident it is ready. I encourage you to post comments and to follow the latest Enterprise Email information available at https://www.us.army.mil/suite/page/646647.

Happy New Year! 2011 will be significant and dynamic for Army IT leaders and users around the world. The Army is leading the change in how our fighting force—and ultimately all of DoD—receive and send information. 

This year, Army email users will migrate to a Microsoft 2010 Enterprise Exchange managed email service—hosted by the Defense Information Systems Agency. Instead of obtaining email from local email servers at each installation, the Army will use email services from the DoD private cloud.  The Army is the first service to migrate to Enterprise Email as part of a larger DoD effort. The goal is to improve capabilities and security, while simultaneously reducing costs.
