RightPath Program Manager

Delivering revolutionary business transformation within a government agency requires navigating a complex maze.

There is a perfect storm of disruptive technology on the horizon that will enable a leaner, smarter government.


RightPath focuses on

People, Processes, and Technology to deliver:

powered by

Virtual Servers and Desktops hosted in your Secure Hybrid, Community Cloud

Immersive Collaboration and Social Networking tools

To deliver solutions through the RightPath framework, we have developed an agency capability that partners the best of the NNSA and DOE OCIO capabilities into one integrated team:

Program Manager – Travis Howerton, NNSA

Chief Architect – Anil Karmel, NNSA

Operations – Robbie Green, DOE

Policy/Partnerships – Peter Tseronis, DOE

Cyber Security – Mary Hitson, NNSA

Fall 2012 – YOURcloud Initial Operating Capability

Winter 2012 – OneNNSA Network – Full Production

Spring 2013 – ONEvoice – Full Production

Summer 2013 – YOURcloud – Full Production

Complete Transformation in < 12 months from funding arrival.

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering based on the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Infrastructure on Demand (IoD) solution
  • Provides an East and West geographically distributed solution for COOP, DR, and Load Balancing
  • Decreases provisioning a server from months to minutes
  • With the release of IoD version 3, we will be offering the nation’s first secure, hybrid, community cloud service

Enterprise FIPS 140-2 encrypted, mesh network connects all sites and allows a common set of communications services

Foundation for enterprise shared services

Allows access to YOURcloud for federal employees and contractors

identity management
Identity Management

Physical Access - OneID – will allow NNSA employees across the organization to seamlessly transfer building and secure access rights at labs and site offices around the country.

Logical Access – building a federated Identity Management solution that covers all NNSA sites and HQ that builds a virtual directory, enables single-sign-on, and keeps access keys fully distributed


YOURcloud-hosted, shared service for a NNSA wide social network:

    • Crowd sourcing/polling
    • Town halls
    • Organic Collaboration and Groups
    • Integration w/ LOB Apps
    • Business/Social Intelligence
enterprise wireless
Enterprise Wireless

Vision: A mobile workforce with dynamic business agility, real-time data, and efficient/secure operations that enable mission objectives.

Mission Statement: Leverage wireless technology to lower operational costs, to shorten design/build time for weapons, to attract and retain a skilled workforce, and to reduce safety and security risks across the enterprise.


Scope: Develop a process to implement secure wireless infrastructure across the NSEDeliver a wireless-fabric infrastructure to enable new application scenarios throughout the NSELeverage other funding sources to serve as a force multiplier for magnifying the benefits of infrastructure investments.

  • NSE Macro-Baseline Benchmarking Study
  • Priority #B1 – Enable and Fund Strategic IT Capabilities (NNSA and Site)
  • “This area offers the greatest return on investment and applies to every site. It would create workload reductions, improve accuracy and speed of work processes and significantly improve employee morale.”
  • “Numerous examples of using people-power instead of processing power with non-integrated desktop solutions instead of integrated enterprise IT solutions.

  • Mobile Worker w/ 802.11N
  • Classified Wireless (Voice and Data)
  • Sensor Networks
  • Wide Area Networks (Campus Mesh and 4G)

Dashboard for Energy Management (facilities, data centers, etc.

Pulls together program and project metrics

Network and security operational information

Advanced intelligence fusing business, cyber, and social analytics to improve decision making

  • An agile, robust, and effective policy framework must be established to enable the rapid insertion of emerging technologies that will enable the mission. Policies will include:
    • Cloud Computing
    • Mobility
    • Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

NNSA technology investments will enable a virtual workforce for the 21st century

Move beyond mobile workforce to virtual workforce

Reduces reliance on office infrastructure and moves toward “hoteling” approach that supports BYOD

“Work is something you do, not somewhere you go.”

- Bob Brese, DOE Deputy CIO

digital government strategy
Digital Government Strategy
  • YOURcloud and the OneNNSA network (which includes Identity Management) create the foundation necessary for Shared Services
  • Enterprise Wireless and the upcoming policy releases create an environment to support “work anywhere, anytime, from any device”
  • Data captured in the cloud can be exposed, where appropriate, to improve government to citizen services and collaboration through robust APIs

DOE/NNSA is attacking this problem on all fronts concurrently

By leveraging the IT toolbox of the 21st century, the agency can fundamentally improve the effectiveness of our mission execution.

By working together, we can create a smarter government that does more with less, makes faster decisions with better information, and fully empowers our next generation workforce.
