Army officials met Dec. 13 for the first in a series of meetings on its strategy to more aggressively consolidate data centers. Not only does the Army claim 200, or 25 percent, of the 800 federal data centers the Office of Management and Budget identified as eligible for consolidation by fiscal 2015, it just lost a year on its timeline, according to Lt. Gen. Susan Lawrence, the Army chief information officer/G6.

“The secretary had given us until 2015. He just asked us to do it by 2014,” said Lawrence Dec. 14 while keynoting an AFCEA NOVA Army IT day.
