Navy to Migrate Asset Mgmt System to AWS Cloud Platform

The U.S. Navy is set to move an enterprise resource planning system to Amazon Web Services' cloud environment as part of an information technology modernization effort.

The migration to AWS GovCloud (US) will allow the Navy to consolidate documentation on $70B worth of goods and components into a single platform, the company said Wednesday.

The ERP system's transition to the cloud will potentially augment data visibility and reinforce decision making capacities on maintenance, repair logs, budget and financial reporting.

AWS noted the service branch pushed with the migration to address gaps in disparate on-premises systems.

To date, the Navy's ERP system is accessed by 72K users from six commands.
