The U.S. Navy completed its largest-ever cloud migration 10 months ahead of schedule, according to a service news release Aug. 23.
During its “tech refresh,” the Navy moved over to the cloud its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, which it uses to budget, track and audit its resources and manages over half of the Navy’s resources. According to the news release, nearly $70 billion of the U.S. economy runs through the Navy ERP. The migration was completed Aug. 19 and is a “critical step” in the modernization of the Navy’s financial management capabilities, the release said.
