Accenture Federal Services Books $127M Army Cloud Modernization, Migration Contract

Accenture‘s (NYSE: ACN) federal services subsidiary has secured a potential three-year, $127 million contract to help the U.S. Army modernize and migrate the service branch’s large-scale applications to the cloud.

The company said Monday it will assess Army applications and build a migration and modernization approach to transition applications, systems and information from data centers into an enterprise multi-cloud environment.

Justin Shirk, managing director for federal cloud and secure missions at Accenture Federal Services, shared that the company will use its Cloud Migration and Modernization Factory to support various defense missions in the cloud.

“Our goal is to rapidly deliver on a modernization vision that will empower the Army to improve its agility, as well as its application and data availability, in critical mission systems that drive force resiliency,” Shirk said.

The Enterprise Application Modernization and Migration contract has a one-year base period with two option years.

“The U.S. Army’s cloud modernization journey is foundational to the Army’s overall modernization strategy and reflects its digital-first mindset,” said Accenture Federal Services Managing Director and Army Client Account Lead Dana Oliver.
