Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) has secured a massive contract to help shift Air Force and Army capabilities to the cloud.
The Reston contractor inked a contract to spin up the Air Force’s Common Computing Environment (Cloud One), which will call on it to migrate close to 800 mission applications to a common cloud environment. The business is worth up to $727 million.
“The Air Force and Army need speed, scale, and security in migrating their mission apps to the cloud,” said Michael LaRouche, executive vice president and general manager of SAIC’s National Security Customer Group, in a press release announcing the win. “We leveraged the best of our own proprietary solutions and partners’ technologies to develop a smart migration approach to address the military’s critical needs.”
