Last week, we were honored to have U.S. Army Signal Corps leaders from around the globe attend our annual Signal Forum in McLean, VA. It proved to be a tremendous opportunity to enhance the knowledge, collaboration and teamwork of our Signal Regiment. We had valuable discussions on the Army Network Campaign Plan; the Army Operating Concept; modernizing our Army Network; moving capabilities to the cloud - and how to work with our partners in the sister services, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Industry and Academia.

I am pleased to announce the publication of the Army Cloud Computing Strategy. The Army is working with key mission partners to enable success of a cloud-enabled network in support of a globally responsive and regionally aligned force.  We are modernizing our network and developing processes and procedures to leverage approved DoD, federal and commercial cloud service providers. The key to our success is ensuring the services offered, align to mission requirements and provide the security controls necessary to protect critical information against known and emerging threats.

Our Army is changing. As we step boldly into the future, the Army will need to be lighter, more flexible and smarter than ever before. This modernized Army will be made possible, in large part, by the network. Here at the Army CIO/G-6, we are working very hard to ensure that no matter where our Soldiers are, what environment they are in or what adversity they face, they will be able to securely connect to the network and access vital information – whether at home station, en route, upon early entry or in a mature theater of operations.
We are already well on the way to achieving the vision of a network that truly enables Soldiers to execute their mission anywhere, anytime. As part of this shift, we are becoming more unified, both as a Service and as a member of the Joint Information Environment (JIE), which encourages and enables better interoperability for our increasingly complex missions.

I am pleased to announce the publication of the Army Network Campaign Plan (ANCP) http://ciog6.army.mil/AboutCIO/Mission/ANCP.aspx. As the Army continues to be regionally aligned and globally responsive, our network must adapt to meet the business and operational needs of commanders across the full range of military operations in a joint, interagency and multinational environment.  

We are already making great progress toward achieving our vision of a secure, integrated, standards-based information environment by taking a joint approach to information technology acquisition, ownership and administration, and the delivery of end-to-end enterprise capabilities. By becoming inherently joint, are reducing redundancy and closing security gaps within LandWarNet. We will also continue to leverage industry advances in cloud and mobile technologies to create a global network that is a platform for dominant cyberspace operations. While I am extremely proud of our progress to date, there is clearly much left to do.
