RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Octo Consulting Group, Inc. (Octo), a premier next-generation IT Federal services provider, has been awarded a spot on the Army’s Cloud Computing Enterprise Transformation (ACCENT) Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA).

“We are elated to have the ability to support the Army and the DoD speed their cloud adoption and leverage Octo’s world class cloud migration and engineering capabilities through the ACCENT BOA,” said Mehul Sanghani, Octo’s CEO. “As a firm we are focused on helping the Federal Government modernize its legacy infrastructure and speed its adoption of next generation IT solutions. We see ACCENT as another way for us to continue that mission. Most importantly, we look forward to expanding our support of our warfighters at home and overseas.”
