This is the July 25, 2013 hearing, "Data Centers and the Cloud, Part II: The Federal Government's take on Optimizing New Information Technologies Opportunities to Save Taxpayers' Money," before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. From the opening statement of David L. McClure: "The Administration launched the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) in 2010 to stem the large increase in federal data centers that had occurred over the past decade. Establishment of the FDCCI coincided with the initial drive to migrate federal IT infrastructure to cloud computing solutions, providing a framework for development of a baseline inventory that would enable agencies to make data-driven decisions about how to gain efficiencies and achieve cost savings within their IT infrastructure. […] In February 2010, the then Federal CIO [Chief Information Officer] issued guidance requiring agencies to identify their existing data center assets and formulate detailed consolidation plans that include a roadmap and consolidation targets." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David L. McClure, Steven VanRoekel, and David Powner.
