Enlighten IT Consulting, a MacAulay-Brown, Inc. company, has been awarded a basic ordering agreement from the U.S. Army Contracting Command. The 3-year Army Cloud Computing Enterprise Transformation, or ACCENT, agreement has a $247 million ceiling value across all holders. Awardees will be considered the preferred source by all Army commands and organizations needing commercial cloud hosting, data center migration, transition support and application modernization services.
“We have a proud history of supporting PEO EIS technical initiatives,” EITC Senior Vice President and General Manager Shawn Justice said. “We view the ACCENT BOA award as another key vehicle to providing innovative cloud engineering practices and processes to meet the challenges associated with critical IT infrastructures, as well as business systems across the Army user community.”
“Our acquisition of EITC has shown an immediate benefit to not only MacB and EITC, but also to our valued customers,” MacB President and CEO Sid Fuchs said. “With the addition of EITC to the MacB portfolio, our strategic plan is on the right trajectory, thus enabling our combined companies to expand into valued defense markets with leading-edge capabilities.”
Managed by the Army’s Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems, ACCENT is a contract vehicle to procure technical support for migration of enterprise systems/applications to a commercial cloud environment or an Army enterprise hosting facility. Requirements are derived from the Army Data Center Consolidation Plan for modernization and migration. The goal is to move designated IT applications, systems and associated data to authorized commercial cloud service providers and also consolidate data centers to AEHFs.
EITC will deliver cloud engineering services and application migration solutions that include infrastructure-as-a-service. Enlighten’s experts will provide application and security requirements analysis, business process reengineering, data preparation, migration planning and scheduling, modernization (code refactoring and augmentation) and virtualization. Work also will include cutover and back out planning, technical engineering, interface and service transition planning, training/compliance in a cloud service environment and go-live support.
