RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The U.S. Army selected Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) to modernize its information technology (IT) infrastructure by migrating enterprise applications to a cloud environment. The Army Human Resources Command Cloud Computing Environment (HRC2E) contract is worth more than $41 million over three years and was competed under the Information Technology Enterprise Solutions - 3 Services (ITES-3S) contract.
“We are excited and pleased to work with the Army/HRC to modernize their legacy systems and help steward their applications to a cloud environment. This initiative is a critical step towards the Army’s goal to capitalize on cost savings, agility, and innovations as they successfully transition into a commercial cloud environment,” said Jim Scanlon, SAIC executive vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems Customer Group.
The contract calls for SAIC to assess, modernize, and migrate 89 Army Human Resource applications to a commercial cloud solution.
