By Fedscoop , January 28th, 2019
The Air Force recently reached a major IT milestone, migrating 555,000 email accounts in the continental U.S. to the Microsoft Office 365 cloud.
The move is part of the military branch’s $1 billion Cloud Hosted Enterprise Services (CHES) program — a continuation of the Air Force’s $296 million Collaboration Pathfinder initiative to deploy Microsoft Office 365 with email, productivity and communications tools across the service, as well as the Defense Logistics Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Dell EMC, Microsoft and General Dynamics are supporting the massive contract, awarded in 2017.
