The delivery of infrastructure assets over the Internet is one of the most significant trends in IT today. SAIC's comprehensive, managed cloud services help federal, state, local, and commercial customers achieve business transformation with the economy, flexibility, and speed of the cloud.
SAIC can optimize, manage, and secure your IT infrastructure with a number of next-generation solutions:
SAIC’s cloud computing helps clients be more secure, more agile, and more efficient with partners and technologies customized for each IT challenge.
SAIC’s cloud-computing services employ a pay-as-you-go approach to technology. Because you pay only for the amount of computing you need, the cost for hardware and software services is greatly reduced. SAIC’s approach brings costs down by eliminating the need to maintain computing centers that regularly operate at less-than-full capacities.
SAIC is more than an IT company. We use deep domain knowledge to solve problems of vital importance to the nation and the world. We understand how your IT infrastructure supports the services that you need to provide. It is this knowledge that drives us to deploy flexible cloud-management solutions that enable you to focus on your mission, not just your technology.
Cloud computing reduces the long procurement and development cycles inherent in legacy computer systems. As an experienced systems integrator, SAIC helps you to quickly purchase comprehensive computing capabilities, such as servers and storage, without having to contract with multiple vendors. SAIC offers a framework that allows you to apply consistent security and governance policies across a mix of private, community, and public clouds. You'll get all the benefits of cloud computing built into a unified solution that can be applied across multiple clouds and providers for maximum flexibility.
SAIC delivers multiple options and opportunities using a portfolio of solutions that help you assess your needs, develop your solutions, migrate your data, and manage your infrastructure. We provide you with maximum flexibility to deliver technology quickly, cost-effectively, and efficiently from the cloud.
Weather Edge LIVE™, SAIC’s first-to-market, cloud-based weather analysis and decision tool, empowers meteorologists with quick and accurate live weather data. If your business relies on forecasting accurate, short-and-long-term weather patterns, Weather Edge LIVE can help you make smarter decisions and give you a new competitive edge.
With a Weather Edge LIVE subscription and an Internet connection, any laptop or tablet becomes a powerful weather analysis workstation with live data streams and images. Weather conditions can significantly impact consumers’ purchasing decisions, particularly within the transportation, aerospace, energy, oil, and natural gas industries. Meteorologists working for state and local government can benefit as well by having real-time information to help manage assets.
With customer mission and business needs as our central focus, SAIC uses our proven engineering best practices and standards in an iterative process to conduct a cloud-computing assessment and perform design, development, implementation, and ongoing managed operations in the cloud. We work directly with the customer's project team to understand its business objectives, review the agency's existing environment, identify opportunities for migration, and create a roadmap for adopting a strong and secure cloud management infrastructure. Continuous stakeholder involvement is the hallmark of our process.
Whether it's a public, private, or community cloud, SAIC's cloud integration solution delivers the best of what the IT industry has to offer without locking you into a single vendor solution. We focus on your mission by allowing you to select from a wide range of cloud providers.
SAIC offers a service catalog to aid customers in their assessment and selection of cloud services. The document provides federal agency customers with pricing and definitions for cloud-computing assessment, security assessment, and management strategy assessment. It details the SAIC offerings currently being marketed in three packages (small, medium, and large) depending on the agency’s number of personnel, mission-area focus, collaboration requirements, and FIMSA security levels.
SAIC offers cloud customers access to a number of core competencies:
SAIC provides a full range of cloud services including migrating applications to clouds, developing migration plans and roadmaps, refactoring applications to take advantage of cloud features, and developing new cloud-based systems as needed. For customers interested in managed cloud services, SAIC offers ongoing management of the end-user applications, server instances, storage, and databases established in cloud-service provider clouds. SAIC also offers services for ongoing monitoring and response, disaster recovery, cloud backup, incident, problem, change, configuration management, service request support, and security services.
SAIC’s portfolio of on-demand technology services including Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), data centers in the cloud, and Email-as-a-Service (EaaS) virtualizes the operating system of the organization:
SAIC focuses on aligning the mission and the cloud to achieve needed results.
The EPA needed a common management model and platform to support extensible environments for their internal private cloud. SAIC prepared a proof of concept showing the VMware VCloud Gen5 tools (specifically, the VCloud Director) could meet the EPA’s requirements. The EPA adopted the VCloud Director and sub-tools to replace the non-performing solutions and standardize the agency’s virtual environment.
NASA’s primary data center service needed to reduce infrastructure costs and speed time-to-deliver and time-to-value for its IT services. SAIC built a private, cloud-based active data center environment with automated data recovery failover. The system allowed for significant cost reductions in data recovery costs, an 87% reduction in power usage, a 95% reduction in physical servers, and an 87% reduction in the facility’s footprint.
The Missile Defense Agency’s CIO needed to reduce data center footprints across the agency. SAIC designed and implemented VMware-based classified and unclassified private-cloud environments and managed the transition of services to the new platform. Initial efforts, from June 2010 to January 2012, achieved virtualization of 35% of the servers in the agency and a 37% reduction in data center power consumption.
