FBI CIO Unveils Next-Gen IT Strategy

The FBI has completed an agency-wide upgrade to its network infrastructure and is six months into deployment of a new Microsoft Office-based PC environment in its field offices. In addition, the FBI’s new case-management system, Sentinel, has begun Phase 2 pilot testing, despite delays that have pushed Sentinel’s completion into 2011. FBI CIO Chad Fulgham last week outlined the agency’s IT strategy and progress in an interview with InformationWeek at the agency’s Washington, D.C., headquarters.
