The Department of Defense (DoD) has mercifully put the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) out of its misery. Along with the announcement of JEDI’s cancelation, the Pentagon said that it would begin the process of implementing a new, enterprise-wide cloud. However, unlike JEDI, which the Department argued had to be a single award to ensure efficiency and security, the new contract, known as the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability (JWCC), will be what is called an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award with multiple vendors winning the right to bid on task orders. But canceling JEDI does not solve DoD’s problems when it comes to migrating critical warfighting functions to the cloud. The Pentagon may find that its new approach has problems, too. I have written more on this here.
