United States : SAIC Wins U.S. Army Human Resources Command Cloud Contract
Publish Date : 19-Nov-2019
The U.S. Army selected Science Applications International Corp. to modernize its information technology (IT) infrastructure by migrating enterprise applications to a cloud environment. The Army Human Resources Command Cloud Computing Environment (HRC2E) contract is worth more than $41 million over three years and was competed under the Information Technology Enterprise Solutions - 3 Services (ITES-3S) contract.
We are excited and pleased to work with the Army/HRC to modernize their legacy systems and help steward their applications to a cloud environment. This initiative is a critical step towards the Armys goal to capitalize on cost savings, agility, and innovations as they successfully transition into a commercial cloud environment, said Jim Scanlon, SAIC executive vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems Customer Group.
The contract calls for SAIC to assess, modernize, and migrate 89 Army Human Resource applications to a commercial cloud solution. By modernizing its IT, the Army will refactor, re-architect, rebuild and/or replace internal application components, which results in improved cybersecurity and application performance, lower total cost of ownership, and/or lower operations and maintenance costs.
This new contract is another important step in SAICs efforts to deliver first-class IT modernization solutions to the U.S. government, said Coby Holloway, SAIC vice president of IT Modernization. By helping our customers on their digital transformation journey to make use of the best technology has to offer, were empowering the Army and others to focus on what matters most delivering outstanding mission outcomes.
