Finding Efficiencies

The Air Force’s chief information officer said he wants to see the number of applications running on Air Force networks cut nearly in half. That move could save the service between $600 million and $800 million a year, Lt. Gen. Bill Lord said during a media roundtable in the Pentagon Tuesday. There are about 19,000 applications on Air Force networks today. Lord thinks the service could get that number down to 10,000.
