Some industry executives have welcomed a Defense Department memorandum that seeks to accelerate the migration of the agency's information technology systems to the cloud, MeriTalk reported Monday.

“There's a ton of innovation that's available to the government and it just needs someone to take a risk,“ said Rob Davies, executive vice president of operations at ViON.

“I hope it means their voices and suggestions will get that much more of a hearing,“ added Davies, an inductee into Executive Mosaic's Wash100 for 2017.

Patrick Shanahan, deputy defense secretary, issued the Sept. 13 memo about DoD's plan to form a new steering group that will work to develop and oversee the implementation of a strategy to advance the implementation of commercial cloud platforms and services.

Ellen Lord, defense undersecretary for acquisition, technology and logistics, will chair the new cloud executive steering group.
