Project Director Enterprise Services Announces Realignment of Enterprise Capabilities

By Douglas Haskin, Deputy Project Director, Enterprise Services


FORT BELVOIR, Va. – The Project Director Enterprise Services (PD ES) announced a major reorganization on Oct. 1, 2013, bringing together three Product Director offices critical to the Army’s network modernization efforts . The new Project Directorate will include Acquisition Logistics and Technology Enterprise Systems and Services (ALTESS), Enterprise Content Collaboration and Messaging (EC2M) and Enterprise Computing (EC). PD ES will oversee the activities of the three Product offices as a part of the Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) family of programs.

“This reorganization is part of an initiative to increase overall efficiencies and better align resources around the many Army enterprise service projects and initiatives that PD ES supports,” said Mr. Jeremy Hiers, Project Director for ES.

The realignment of enterprise functions and renaming of organizations consists of:

  • Mr. John P. Howell, who presently leads the PD Enterprise Email (EE) organization, will assume duties as PD EC2M and manage four acquisition initiatives: Army Knowledge Online (AKO), Enterprise Content Management and Collaboration Services, EE and Unified Capabilities. This structure will better synchronize services as the Army replaces current capabilities with newer technologies and additional capabilities.
  • Dr. Kenneth H. Fritzsche, who presently leads the PD AKO organization, will assume duties as PD EC and manage three acquisition initiatives: the Army Data Center Consolidation Plan, Cloud initiatives and the Army Enterprise Service Desk.
  • Mr. Rich Eva will continue to lead PD ALTESS, providing hosting solutions and services for owners of enterprise applications to the Army’s acquisition community and many other Department of Defense customers.

The enterprise services programs equip the Army with a comprehensive, integrated program management function focused on planning, coordination and management of critical IT services for the Army community. Key program objectives include reducing the complexity and costs of enterprise services, seamless integration of products and solutions, transition planning and migration, and enhancing performance monitoring and management capabilities – all with a focus on ensuring a positive end-user experience.
