Golden Gov: Executive of the Year

Army Chief Information Officer Raj Iyer has seen some major wins in 2022. Most recently, his office launched a Google Workspace for soldiers, sunsetting the service’s use of Defense Enterprise Email for a streamlined user experience for active duty members, reservists and guardsmen. The service also recently launched a new bring-your-own-device pilot, allowing soldiers to connect their personal communication and IT devices to Army networks. And finally, the Army is on the path to launching a $1 billion cloud procurement in fiscal 2023. “This is going to become the easy button for the Army to actually move to the cloud,” Iyer said.
