The Army plans resume Enterprise Email migration on or about 1 Sept. 2011. Between Aug. 16 and Sept. 1, the Army is first testing new, refined migration procedures at Fort Lee, Va., and Fort Leavenworth, Kan.

All,

As you all know, DISA and the Army have been working on improving performance of DoD Enterprise Email (EE) for the last 2 months. Four major items adversely affecting EE performance were identified and resolved. The operational pause for EE is paying off and I am confident we will meet the criteria to lift it soon, and resume migrations.
 
MG Jennifer Napper, CG, 9th SC(A)/NETCOM shared a progress report with me that I'd like to share. Her progress report is below.

It’s time for an update on the Army’s migration to Enterprise Email (EE).   This migration is one of our main efforts and also a pacing item for Army IT consolidation and modernization.

We have migrated over 70K users so far. I, LTG Lawrence, and the NETCOM Commanding General, MG Napper, along with our organizations were early adopters and have been using EE for over 4 months. ARCYBER Headquarters migrated in May.
 
Let me share what we've learned to date:

On May 23rd, LTG Lawrence joined the Army Vice Chief of Staff, GEN Peter Chiarelli, in talking to the media about what I consider to be one of the biggest challenges, albeit opportunity, to influence change in how we command and control our Army – delivering the Global Network Enterprise. Also present were two of our most important partners in this effort, MG James Barclay, Deputy G-3/5/7, and MG Keith Walker from the Brigade Modernization Command at Fort Bliss Texas.
From our posts, camps, and stations to the tactical edge, we must get Soldiers, civilians, and mission partners the information they need, when they need it and in any environment. To do so, we must deliver an integrated and interoperable network, from the highest echelon to the lowest, forming a true enterprise network.
