Overview[edit | edit source]
The DoD Cloud Strategy reasserts the U.S. Department of Defense's commitment to cloud and the need to view cloud initiatives from an enterprise perspective for more effective adoption. It recognizes the DoD's experience over the past five years and identifies seven strategic objectives along with guiding principles to set a path forward. It emphasizes mission and tactical edge needs along with the requirement to prepare for artificial intelligence while accounting for protection and efficiencies.
The strategy drives implementation toward the enterprise cloud environment, an ecosystem composed of a General Purpose and Fit For Purpose clouds. It focuses implementation activities on two fundamental types of work: first is the stand up of cloud platforms ready to receive data and applications, and second is the ongoing work to migrate existing applications and to develop new applications in the cloud.
