The Department of Veterans Affairs is taking another step toward the deployment of tablet computers to its workforce. VA has sent a request for information to industry in the hopes of buying a mobile device management platform that will let it secure and manage tens of thousands of tablets across the enterprise. The plans call for a deployment of 10,000 tablets running Apple's iOS, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows Mobile to start. They plan to eventually increase that to up to 100,000 tablets.
As the intelligence community looks for ways to cut its budget over the coming decade, it's turning to IT efficiency to be a big contributor. The director of national intelligence says he intends for agencies to get half of their budget savings by implementing more collaborative and common IT architectures, and migrating more services to cloud computing. DNI James Clapper says the stretch goal will take some up-front investment, but he hopes the IT initiatives will pay big dividends over the next ten years.
The Department of Veterans Affairs thinks it can squeeze around 50 million dollars from its technology budget by using hardware and software more efficiently. VA is launching what it calls its ruthless reduction project. For example, employees will be given a choice of a laptop or a desktop computer - not both. VA will get rid of printers at individual employee desks and move to multifunction devices. And they'll implement more server virtualization, to cut down on the physical IT infrastructure they operate.
