OMB tasks the DCCOI PMO, in consultation with the Office of Shared Services and Performance Improvement (OSSPI), and the Technology Transformation Service (TTS), with the following actions: Over the past two years, the Office of Management and Budget has received extensive feedback from agencies as they implemented the Data Center Optimization Initiative, identifying areas where agencies were able to achieve the greatest improvements and savings, as well as those that did not yield a positive return on investment.
required the Federal Government to consolidate and optimize agencies’ data centers by October 1, 2018.
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) responded by issuing M-16-19, Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI), extended the data center requirements of FITARA until October 1, 2020.
This will frequently require updating legacy applications to take advantage of modern technologies such as APIs, microservices, and cloud, as well as replacing bespoke systems with commercial offerings when cost-effective.
Agencies should consider carefully the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) when making such determinations, not just licensing and hosting costs.
