IT Reform: Task Force Will Drive Data Center Closures†
- CIO Council
This past February, the Federal CIO Council launched a government-wide Data Center Consolidation Task Force to help meet the overall Federal target of a minimum of 800 data center closures by 2015, and to share progress toward individual agency goals. The Task Force comprises data center program managers, facilities managers, and sustainability officers from 24 agencies.
The Task Force meets monthly to review the progress of each consolidation project and ensure government-wide alignment between agency efforts, where appropriate. As its work evolves, the Task Force will serve as a “community of practice” for agency CIOs and data center program managers to share best practices and enhance consolidation effectiveness.
