Accenture Federal Services (AFS) has been awarded a potential $66 million U.S. Air Force enterprise-IT-as-a-service (EITaaS) Compute and Store agreement to improve mission outcomes through advanced technology solutions, AFS announced on Tuesday.
“We’re honored to be selected to help the Air Force enable its digital transformation,” said retired Army Lt. Gen. Susan Lawrence, a managing director with AFS and 2016 Wash100 Award winner.
AFS will use commercially available software and other assets to modernize the Air Force technology infrastructure at these bases, including migrating applications to the cloud. AFS will maintain the EITaaS Compute and Store environments leveraging artificial intelligence and automation to optimize infrastructure processes.
AFS will also use the recently expanded Accenture Federal Digital Studio, a collaborative environment where teams use service design principles to help federal government clients advance mission capabilities through innovation and rapid experimentation.
“By combining our leading commercial digital capabilities with our innovation methodology and cutting-edge human-centered design work, we can help provide a foundation for cloud growth within the Air Force and across the Department of Defense,” Lt. Gen. Lawrence added.
