Technica to assist in migration & modernisation of US Army cloud under ACCENT
The US Army’s Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems (PEO-EIS) has selected Technica Corp., a leader in high-end systems engineering and operations and maintenance for mission-critical networks and applications, as a provider for the $250 million Army Cloud Computing Enterprise Transformation (ACCENT) Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA), under which Technica will support the army in transitioning its systems and applications to FedRAMP-certified commercial cloud hosting services or an Army Enterprise Hosting Facility (AEHF). This contract is in direct alignment with the army’s data centre consolidation strategy, with goals of a 75% reduction by 2025.
“Technica is excited to be onboarded to the ACCENT BOA, which provides access for army and other DoD capability owners to take advantage of our proven abilities and deep knowledge in migration of enterprise systems and applications to commercial or DoD-hosted cloud environments,” said Doug Sickler, Vice President of Business Development for Technica. “As a long-standing, trusted IT engineering partner to DoD agencies, we are pleased to extend our reach to the Army.”
ACCENT allows army solution owners the ability to obtain commercial cloud service offerings and Information Technology (IT) technical support for the transition of army enterprise system/applications migrating to a commercial cloud environment or an AEHF.
These commercial cloud hosting services can be acquired in any combination of service models, deployment models, and Impact Levels as defined in the DoD Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (CC SRG) along with transition support services required to move a system/application to a cloud environment. Cloud requirements may also include mobile computer solutions.
ACCENT provides services and solutions necessary for the army to satisfy the requirement to migrate army enterprise systems/applications to commercial cloud service providers and/or AEHFs. Commercial cloud services are acquired based on approved Cloud Service Provider (CSO) Cloud Service Offerings (CSOs). ACCENT also enables capability owners to modernise and transition applications to CSP/CSOs and/or AEHFs, and facilitates the acquisition of modular or mobile hosting facilities.
