General Dynamics Information Technology

General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT), a business unit of General Dynamics, has signed a Microsoft Partner Agreement for Online Services-Government (AOS-G), GDIT reported on Thursday. 

"Clients across the federal government are rapidly adopting cloud and Software-as-a-Service solutions," said Ben Gianni, vice president and chief technology officer of GDIT. "Microsoft offers Microsoft 365 for collaboration, Azure for cloud based workloads and Dynamics 365 for customer relationship management."

Under the agreement, GDIT will provide federal customers with the capability to access Azure services and offerings, including the classified regions of Azure Government. GDIT's agreement with Microsoft will expand the company’s cloud strategy and provide federal customers the full set of offerings to meet their enterprise and mission requirements. 

Microsoft is a Strategic Alliance Partner within GDIT's technology partner program. With Microsoft, GDIT will be able to provide Department of Defense customers with migration to both Microsoft 365 and Azure under its Defense Enterprise Office Solution (DEOS) contract. 

DEOS is an enterprise commercial cloud environment supporting the DoD strategy to acquire and implement enterprise applications and services for joint use across the Department, standardize cloud adoption, and enable cross-department collaboration. 

In addition, the alliance will enable GDIT to deliver a variety of solutions on Azure, including cloud computing, storage, analytics and machine learning, as well as support the federal government as it leverages cloud technology for its missions. GDIT will also use Microsoft's offerings to streamline costs and incorporate best-practice maintenance services for its customers.

"Microsoft and GDIT have long partnered to support the most complex missions across the government sector," said Greg Myers, vice president of Microsoft Federal at Microsoft Corp. "This agreement will further solidify this relationship through GDIT's deep knowledge of the government programs to enable cloud technology to support modernization and digital transformation efforts across the federal government."
