During a time of IT leadership transition in the Army, deputy CIO Michael Krieger has kept critically important technology initiatives moving in the right direction.

With 1.4 million users and an IT budget of about $10 billion, the Army is one of the largest IT organizations in the world. Last May, in an effort to halt server sprawl as it began consolidating and relocating some of its 200 data centers, the military branch took the unusual step of imposing a moratorium on server purchases. The Army is also consolidating applications, virtualizing servers, and expanding its use of cloud computing.

A senior executive in federal government and Army veteran, Krieger has held key IT positions in the Department of Defense's Office of the CIO and elsewhere at the Pentagon. He holds degrees from the U.S. Military Academy, Georgia Institute of Technology, and National Defense University.
