CSC puts FAA personnel into cloud environment

Computer Sciences Corp. will provide the Federal Aviation Administration with a cloud software-as-a-service solution under seven-year contract with an estimated total value of $91 million.

The contract calls specifically for CSC to implement a cloud software-as-a-service solution for the FAA’s Enterprise Messaging System, according to a June 7 CSC announcement.

CSC will provide Microsoft Office 365 in Microsoft’s secure cloud environment, a solution that includes comprehensive email, collaboration, messaging, legal eDiscovery and other office applications.

These applications will meet the FAA’s objective of being able to access data any time and any place from virtually any device in a cost effective way.

As a result, CSC will transition 80,000 users across multiple email systems to the Microsoft Office 365 system.

The contract was awarded in response to the Office of Management and Budget’s “Cloud First” initiative to integrate flexible and scalable services wherever possible.

With a diverse workforce and broad mission, the FAA’s move to a consolidated cloud service will significantly improve productivity and communications across DOT and FAA operations, the announcement said.

CSC, of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 9 on Washington Technology’s 2012 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.

Yes and now the terror rendition programs will be headed by the FDA CSC Cloud! How irresponsible of the FAA to do business with a corrupt organization such as CSC. Government agencies need to be held accountable when they do business with a company that is currently under investigation for potentially defrauding investors by irregular accounting practices by the SEC, Has failed to deliver to its customers such as NHS and is responsible for illegal terror rendition programs by the CIA.
