Last week, federal CIO Tony Scott, released the final version of the new Federal Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI). The new initiative applies to the 24 CFO agencies including the Department of Defense and supersedes the former Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) that was launched in 2010. The memo sets a framework for achieving the data center consolidation and optimization requirements of FITARA, and is meant to refresh and refocus the federal data center strategy. The plan also establishes criteria for successful data center efficiency plans and the metrics that OMB will use to measure successful implementation of these strategies.
The federal government anticipates billions of dollars in cost avoidance in coming years through agency data center streamlining. Estimates for government-wide potential savings through fiscal 2019 exceed $8 billion.
FITARA is about fixing CIO authorities, delivering modern solutions quickly, and efficient IT stated Dave Powner, Director of IT Issues at GAO, during a forum in Washington, DC on March 30th sponsored by Meritalk.
