BAE Systems Attains Amazon DevOps Competency to Better Service U.S. Government and Commercial Clouds
BAE Systems has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) DevOps Competency Consulting Partner status. DevOps is a combination of practices and tools that enables users to evolve and deploy software at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes. AWS DevOps Competency Partners must demonstrate expertise in helping organizations implement continuous integration and delivery practices or aiding in automating infrastructure provisioning and management with AWS configuration management tools.
“This trusted, independent accreditation of our technical proficiency furthers our position as the go-to expert for developing and operating government cloud environments,” said Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Intelligence Solutions business.
BAE Systems develops, delivers, and sustains secure cloud environments that can be customized to support government organizations transitioning to the cloud. To accomplish this, the company’s certified AWS DevOps professionals work closely with their customers to understand their missions and use the AWS cloud to quickly deliver applications and infrastructure, optimize cost and performance, and protect organizational assets.
“Using DevOps, we are able to quickly build, test, and deploy code to eliminate bugs, enhance mission functionality and implement cybersecurity protection quickly and efficiently, while also minimizing downtime,” said Manish Parikh, chief technology officer for BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security business. “Our DevOps team is changing how our customers leverage the cloud throughout their enterprise to improve their overall user experience.”
The AWS DevOps competency is part of the company’s expanded government and commercial cloud service strategy. BAE Systems also offers its own Federated Secure Cloud solution, which has the flexibility to operate seamlessly on any commercial or on-premise cloud system, yet can be customized to support any government organization transitioning to a secure hybrid cloud environment.
