The Flexibility and Scalability of the Cloud Is Transformational
The cloud is transforming businesses across every industry, and government is no different. Agencies can leverage the cloud to deliver improved services to citizens, support and scale their mission critical operations, and enhance business outcomes with innovative technologies the cloud has to offer in data analytics, security, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and serverless computing.
REI’s enterprise cloud transformation framework helps organizations intelligently adopt cloud technologies specific to their mission requirements. We support the entire cloud lifecycle from strategy to application modernization through migration and management—we offer the right tools, processes, security expertise, and partnership ecosystem to help government realize the full business value of the cloud.
Improve Operations and Agility
Well-architected cloud environments have few issues, are much more reliable and secure, and take the burden of operational management off IT teams so they can focus on mission-related systems. We design environments to meet your confidentiality, integrity, and availability demands. The cloud improves innovation and experimentation by simplifying the process of quickly activating new capabilities.
REI helped set the standard for cloud across government by supporting the development of the General Services Administration and the Office of Management and Budget’s security policy. We bake in layered security from inception with the software we deliver through the cloud environments we build and manage, using best practices like immutable infrastructure deployed through continuous delivery pipelines, multifactor authentication, and FISMA-compliant technology.
A well-designed cloud architecture provides cost-effective value in many ways – including providing automated disaster recovery and the ability to scale to meet your users’ demands. Legacy system designs can be expensive to run in the cloud. Unoptimized or unmanaged environments may not improve produce unnecessary expenses. REI helps understand your needs, modernization roadmap, and user expectations to craft a baseline environment to accomplish your mission objectives. Further, we continuously look for opportunities to reduce costs based on usage patterns or emerging FedRAMP authorized services.
Leverage Emerging Technologies
The cloud offers the ability to leverage new capabilities like containers, serverless computing, microservices, the Internet of Things, big data, AI/ML and much more. These emerging technologies can take agencies to the next phase of mission innovation without significant up-front investment.
While cloud computing has many known benefits, it is not always the right option for government agencies. Read more about when and what should be moved to the cloud.
