Congress has added a roadblock to the Army's move to a government-operated cloud for enterprise email service. Language in this year's Defense authorization bill requires the Army to put its move to the cloud on hold while it prepares reports and business case analyses for the service, operated by the Defense Information Systems Agency, and reports back to lawmakers. The Army estimates it'll set back its transition to enterprise email by at least 45 days.
