Army Knowledge Leaders Study Cloud Computing

This week it was my pleasure to explore cloud computing with Army Knowledge Leaders (AKL) !

AKL is an intensive 2 year experience of training and work rotations designed to develop leadership, business and technology competencies to support the Army Chief Information Officer (CIO) mission (Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996). In doing this, the Army is cultivating a new breed of IT leaders for a knowledge-centric organization. Program participants are self-starters and lifelong learners with solid peer/mentor relationships and a commitment to public service.

Through the use of a cloud computing mind map, these knowledge leaders covered many aspects of cloud computing, including:

  • Definition and characteristics
  • Use cases and operational requirements
  • Security concerns and techniques
  • Industry standards
  • Cloud computing reference model
  • Mission driven solution design; and
  • Adoption and expansion process

The group I was with this week was truly impressive!! Kudos to the US Army for their visionary approach to information technology.  I would also like to thank the Army Knowledge Leaders Program for giving me the opportunity to interact with such an impressive group.
