The approach the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the U.S. Army use for cloud computing will impact how operational test and evaluation (OT&E) is performed by the Army Test and Evaluation Center (ATEC). The SEI conducted training, workshops, and detailed reviews of OT&E deliverables from several selected programs to identify the impacts that the AEC should expect when the Army shifts to cloud technology. This paper provides an overview of the work needed for OT&E to gather the information needed to successfully address those impacts.
