Novetta announced Thursday that it has secured an agreement under the SOSSEC consortium’s other Transactional Authority (OTA) Cyberspace Operations Broad Responsive Agreement (COBRA) vehicle for the account management optimization effort in the cloud (CAMO) with the US Army’s Enterprise Cloud Management Agency (ECMA).
The military has chosen Novetta’s technology to reinvent the service branch’s cloud management processes. The company’s solution will allow the military to consolidate existing cloud spending and standardize how the military purchases cloud. This project will eliminate inaccurate estimates, inefficient procurement and overspending as the military moves towards cloud spending estimated at $ 1 billion by 2025.
“Our solution for the CAMO effort will disrupt the traditional account management lifecycle and revolutionize cloud account acquisition and management for the entire military enterprise. It will provide the best automated procurement, management, budgeting, funding and control processes for 360 degree visibility of the military’s cloud footprint, ”commented Justin Shirk, vice president of Novetta who leads its asymmetric analysis division.
The Army’s Enterprise Cloud Management Office was elevated in March 2021 to a Field Operating Agency under the leadership of the Army’s Chief Information Officer (CIO). The reorganization is a strong signal of the army’s commitment to integrate an advanced cloud service and to realize its digital modernization strategy by adopting new digital technologies.
“By combining our automated cloud management and provisioning infrastructure with CloudTracker, our solution will improve the military’s adoption and optimization of cloud computing while providing transparency on cloud spending,” said Kevin Heald , senior vice president of Novetta.
