Where does DOD enterprise e-mail really stand?

After migration issues, Microsoft patching, adjustments to tactics, techniques and procedures and some serious hurdles in funding – all of which the Army says have been or will soon be fixed – will 2012 be the year Defense Department enterprise e-mail transcends the rhetoric and speaks for itself?

Maybe not. If DOD enterprise e-mail’s had a murky existence so far, its future is practically opaque. In fact, there are more questions than ever, including three big ones.

Some background: A little less than a year ago, the focus was mostly on Army enterprise e-mail, since it was – and still is – the only service implementing the program. There were questions as to if and when the other services would join, but most concern centered on the technical difficulties the Defense Information Systems Agency and Army CIO were having in migrating e-mail accounts.

Air Force's Hawkins takes charge as DISA director

Army Lt. Gen. Carroll Pollett officially stepped down as director of the Defense Information Systems Agency in a change-of-command ceremony held Jan. 11 at Ft. Meade, Md., where the agency is headquartered.

Taking over DISA’s reins is Air Force Maj. Gen. Ronnie Hawkins.

Pollett has served as the leader of DISA since 2008, and is retiring after a 37-year Defense Department career.

“Every part of DISA has an essential role in the accomplishments and support we have provided the Warfighter over the past three years. Our partners throughout the department, elsewhere in the government, foreign and domestic, and in industry have had critical roles as well,” Pollett said. “I want to thank them for their continued service to their country, and for the hard work they do every day.”

Hawkins returns to DISA after a brief stint at the Pentagon as the Joint Staff's deputy director, command, control, communications and computer systems, a role he has filled since July. Before his Joint Staff assignment, Hawkins was DISA's vice director under Pollett.
