Report: SSA Wants ‘Hybrid’ Cloud Environment for IT Modernization Initiative

John Foertschbeck, a senior adviser at the Social Security Administration‘s Office of Systems Operations and Hardware Engineering, has said adopting a hybrid cloud computing infrastructure will help the agency manage its footprint on mainframe systems, FedScoop reported Friday.

SSA aims to migrate information technology applications to public and private cloud platforms as part of a five-year modernization effort.

The agency selected CGI‘s federal unit, Leidos and Northrop Grumman to provide IT support services under a potential 10-year, $7.8 billion contract.

Foertschbeck noted that SSA wants to expand the agency’s cloud portfolio and help customers manage tasks with the use of infrastructure, platform and software-as-a-service platforms.
