Army gets side benefits from cloud email transition

The Army says its new enterprise email system is bringing some side benefits, along with improved messaging services. Moving the entire Army to one cloud-based platform forced the service to undertake a huge cleanup of its global networks--networks Army leaders say had grown disorganized and nonstandardized after ten years of war. After finishing the cleanup, the Army plans to start a full-speed-ahead migration of the rest of its 1.4 million users within the next month.
