For one DoD agency, meeting DoD cloud migration mandates meant the need for a different type of consulting partner. A traditional firm might be able to complete the technical objective. But with the agency’s 1,500-strong global user community relying on its business systems software to procure all goods and critical services, meeting technical objectives is only the start.
We approached the job with a deep understanding of DoD needs. These include procurement regulations, a classified environment, intra-agency interface communications, and the need to maintain audit compliance. We then started translating the agency’s overall goals into corresponding enhancements to their COTS business systems software. One-on-one personal consultation from senior executives ensured that the agency’s unique strategic challenges were met in tandem with its mandated technical requirements.
As a result of Macro’s efforts, DoD procurement and other critical systems are more efficient than ever. For the first time, DoD business applications are migrated to a secure hybrid cloud environment, are fully auditable, and FISCAM-compliant. Plus, through 11 software version changes with an aggressive schedule of 3 – 5 per year, the agency has seen no unscheduled system downtime or disruption.
