MCLEAN, Va., 24 January 2005. CIBER, Inc. today announced it has successfully accomplished the Active Directory migration of the Fort Campbell domain on time and within budget.

Fort Campbell, home of the famed 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Screaming Eagles, supports the third largest military population in the Army and the seventh largest in the Department of Defense. The project is part of CIBER's recently won multi-million dollar, five-year contract that provides ongoing IT services support and project management to the Director of Information Management (DOIM).

Fort Campbell's 101st Airborne Division is one of the first two divisions selected for transformation to the Army's Future Force. Future Force's goal is to transform the Army into a strategically responsive, precision maneuver force, dominant across the range of military operations. A significant building program is underway at Fort Campbell to accommodate the transformation.

The Fort Campbell DOIM is responsible for managing, fielding and sustaining leading edge information technologies on the installation. The management staff also establishes policy and enforces information processing standards as part of the Army's integration of new and modernized systems. In response to Army transformation and other issues, the DOIM is currently initiating a long-term modernization program consisting of switch modernization, bandwidth expansion, active directory and more.

CIBER's Federal Outsourcing Division and CIBER's wholly owned subsidiary, REMTECH, both part of CIBER's Federal Government Solutions practice, have extensive experience supporting other Army operations and/or migrations efforts that include: Fort Stewart, Ga.; Fort Rucker, Ala.; Carlyle Barracks, Pa.: the United States Army Reserve Command; and the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers.

During the Active Directory engagement, more than 5,000 computers were completely rebuilt either in place or at an "Imaging Center." In addition, more than 8,000 accounts were recreated in the new Active Directory domain. CIBER upgraded, stabilized and secured the new Active Directory domain, while maintaining the current Fort Campbell readiness tempo.
