Thanks to DISA, the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC), NETCOM, and our other mission partners, the Army exceeded 500K users on DoD Enterprise Email (EE) this week. When you consider that 500K Army Knowledge Online (AKO)-only users will be migrated in February 2013, we are well on our way to completing Army migration to DoD EE by the end of March 2013. In addition to Army users, we can boast of an additional nearly 18K users from the Joint Staff, DISA, and U.S. European Command. This is an incredible milestone and one for which every member of the team can be proud.
Of course, there is a lot of work ahead. We are diligently working with the remaining commands and organizations to complete their migrations, and we are getting ready to start migrations for the Army’s classified network.
As you all know, Enterprise Email is only the beginning. In earlier posts, I mentioned one of the most significant capabilities of DoD EE is DoD Enterprise Directory Services (EDS). EDS provides a single, authoritative identity to everyone in DoD based on their CAC card credentials. As in DoD EE, EDS provides the building blocks that will enable the Army to more fully implement a single identity across the DoD. EDS enables the goal to ensure your personal and organizational data is always securely available from anywhere.
Once again, thanks to the DoD EE and EDS teams, and all our mission partners for your hard work, dedication, and contributions.
