Anil Cheriyan, Bob DeLuca leaving GSA

Two of the General Services Administration's top technology leaders have resigned. Anil Cheriyan, head of the Technology Transformation Services, will leave GSA July 17, the agency announced Tuesday.

Navy's beats goal in move to cloud

When the Navy began migrating its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) program to the cloud, it thought it would take 18 months. To the leadership's delight, though, it took less than half of that. According to Edward Quick, the Navy’s program manager for enterprise business solutions, the service cut its migration in half by reducing the number of external reviews and check-ins, having the financial resources and political backing from top leadership, and using edge-cloud systems to handle the migration of terabytes of data, helping the program office move to Amazon Web Service servers in just over half a year. Jackson Barnett has the scoop.
