Enterprise Cloud Management Agency

Home of cARMY, CReATE, and cDATA

Who are we?

At the direction of the Secretary of the Army, the Enterprise Cloud Management Agency (ECMA) is a field operating agency that provides oversight for all Army cloud processes and activities. Operating under the Headquarters Department of the Army, Chief Information Office, ECMA ensures a full unity of effort, in identification of four strategic imperatives: 1)   Establish a global cloud environment (cARMY) 2)   Create a DevSecOps framework and environment (CReATE) that serves as a basis for cRMF 3)   Establish a Data Service environment (cDATA) 4)   Codify a campaign effort across the Army and DoD. These imperatives are intended to drive the Army’s transition to cloud-enabling capabilities and to synchronize planning, resourcing and acquisition activities in the institutional and operational environments.

ECMA VISION STATEMENT

Deliver digital overmatch through data-driven outcomes at the speed of operational relevance.

ECMA MISSION STATEMENT

The ECMA increases Army readiness and lethality by continuously enhancing digital literacy; driving data, software and process transformation and delivering a secure, globally-dominant cloud ecosystem, foundational to the Army-modernization strategy and digital overmatch.

CLOUD ENABLEMENT

ABOUT US: Cloud Enablement Division designs, develops, resources, executes, and refines the Army’s central software/application modernization process, including system owner and stakeholder engagements, software assessments and design enhancements, and software engineering efforts, to deliver secure, cloud-optimized solutions and operationalize data IAW Army priorities and policies. CONTACT US: Go to the ECMA milSuite page (CAC required) and follow the steps. For questions, contact the Cloud Enablement Division at armycloud@mail.mil.

CLOUD CYBERSECURITY BRANCH

ABOUT US: The Cloud Cybersecurity Branch (C2B), under the Data and Software Services Division (DSD), enables digital overmatch by accelerating the Army’s transition to cloud technologies, with a focus on cybersecurity policy, in support of the 2019 Army Modernization Strategy. C2B provides decision makers with risk-informed policy and recommendations by modernizing the cybersecurity authorization process and decreasing time to field cloud-based solutions through the execution of a lean risk management process. Key tasks include modernizing ATO processes to capitalize on cloud-enabled DevSecOps practices, aligning cybersecurity policy to strategic guidance, Congressional requirements, and establishing compliance reporting for all Army cloud environments.

CLOUD SERVICES

ABOUT US: The Cloud Services Division instantiates and provides ongoing operations and maintenance for the set of cARMY common shared services in the cARMY Cloud Service Provider environments (Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure). These common services are established to support each information impact level (IL 2/4/5 today, with IL 6 work underway now). Additionally, the Cloud Services Division establishes and maintains the set of access and border security services for the cARMY environment, including the Virtual Data Security Stack and the availability of cARMY user access to the environments through the Cloud Access Points. Services Catalogue Common Shared Services for cARMY enable applications to function in the hosting environment and are centrally managed by the ECMA. Providing centralized Common Shared Services reduces costs and reduces barriers to cloud adoption by preparing the environment for all applications. The ECMA presently delivers 31 Common Shared Services in cARMY and will update and modify these as Army needs dictate. Visit the ECMA milSuite page (CAC Required) in order to view all 31 Common Services Support cloud applications.

CLOUD MANAGEMENT

ABOUT US: The Cloud Management Division handles the financial operations, external communications, business processes, acquisition efforts, and technical architecture for the Enterprise Cloud Modernization Office. These efforts are focused on ensuring the required vendor services are available via contracts awarded based on focused acquisition efforts, ensuring business processes are defined across stakeholders—with automated workflows in defined systems—to allow ECMA to effectively meet customers’ needs in each phase of the customer’s journey. ECMA ensures concise, informative, and educational communications are provided to all Army audiences, and has an overall technical architecture allowing all aspects of the cARMY environment to function effectively.

DEVSECOPS AND DATA SERVICES

ABOUT US: As a division of ECMA, Data and Software Services Division will provide data and development security operations (DevSecOps) products and services for the Army. This will include data discovery and operationalization of the end-to-end data acquisition and analysis process. This also includes the fielding of the Army’s Code Resource and Transformation Environment (CReATE), a continuous integration/continuous delivery pipeline for Army software product teams, which is currently in minimum viable product (MVP) development. The division will provide DevSecOps services, architecture, and product management leadership for designing, testing, and fielding software across each mission area. The Cloud Cybersecurity Branch as part of the Data and Software Service Division enables digital overmatch by accelerating the Army’s transition to cloud technologies, with a focus on cyber security policy, in support of the 2019 Army Modernization Strategy. Cloud Cybersecurity Branch provides decision makers with risk-informed policy and recommendations by modernizing the security authorization process and decreasing time to field cloud-based solutions through the execution of a lean risk management process. Key tasks include modernizing ATO processes to capitalize on cloud-enabled DevSecOps practices, aligning cyber security policy to strategic guidance and Congressional requirements, and establishing compliance reporting for all Army cloud environments.

cARMY

Common Shared Services for cARMY enable applications to function in the hosting environment and are centrally managed by the ECMA. Providing centralized Common Shared Services reduces costs and reduces barriers to cloud adoption by preparing the environment for all applications. The ECMA presently delivers 31 Common Shared Services in cARMY and will update and modify these as Army needs dictate.

About CReATE

Our Mission is to get more application teams iterating with their users. The Army's Code Resource and Transformation Environment (CReATE) enables Army software teams to get secure, resilient, and scalable applications in the hands of their users more quickly. We provide a suite of DevSecOps tools, services, and pre-built paths to production to enable cloud-native software development. Our paths to production use the Army CReATE DevSecOps Playbook (CAC Card Required), the continuous Risk Management Framework (cRMF) model and an IL-4 accredited environment.

What CReATE Offers

  • Engineering Productivity Tools is a suite of IL-4 accredited tools (currently Jira, Gitlab, SonarQube, and Nexus) that boost efficiency and serve as a total Army resource for modern software development. Engineering Productivity Tools is at General Availability and onboarding new users. For more information, contact CReATE-EPT@army.mil
  • Application Security Validation Engineers (ASVEs) are developer security advocates that bridge the gap between technical implementation and compliance to reduce security debt for teams and accelerate deployments. ASVEs currently only provide support to Army organizations within the CReATE DevSecOps ecosystem who are using our paths to production (MYOC and SRCerer). For more information contact ASVE@swf.army.mil
  • For Army software teams who build containerized applications, Manage Your Own Cluster (MYOC) provides an accredited IL-4 Kubernetes hosting platform that will speed up your path to production by offering continuous authorization and ease of use. MYOC is currently in closed beta and is targeting General Availability in mid FY22; the MYOC team is currently looking for beta users! For more information, contact MYOC@swf.army.mil
  • SRCerer is a product that offers a Source Code Push model that provides repeatable, accredited build process with inherited controls. SRCerer allows application teams to drastically reduce the time it takes for the application to go from ideation to running in production in a secure and approved way. SRcerer is currently in closed beta and is targeting General Availability in early FY22. For more information, contact SRCerer at platformteam@swf.army.mil
