Managed services have come a long way in the 30 years since federal agencies first sought to escape the cycle of buying, maintaining and replacing PCs and the software they ran. Today vendors offer a range of up-to-date programs that lower the capital expenditure, or CapEx, obligations and move them to a recurring fee operational expense, or OpEx model.
In contemporary times, modernization is driven not only by the continuous advances in technology, but also by the need to control costs and deliver state-of-the-art services.
The Defense Information Systems Agency started implementing functionality from the $7.6 billion contract on Thursday, deploying DEOS capabilities first to the agency's own users.

Warfighters and decision-makers at the Defense Department need access to their data at the speed of relevance. That is, data is not much use to them if they can’t access it in time to complete the mission. That’s one of the reasons the backup and restore capability is one of the most important in the Defense Information Systems Agency’s milCloud 2.0.
GSA announced it again picked the team led by CSRA LLC, now known as General Dynamics-IT, for the 10-year, $4.4 billion blanket purchase agreement called DEOS.

The Government Accountability Office ruled against GDIT in its protest of the $7.7 billion award to Leidos. A separate protest, filed by Perspecta, is due to be settled by next week.
GAO dismissed Perspecta’s second protest of the enterprise email and cloud collaboration contract called DEOS awarded to GDIT in August after GSA said it would take corrective action.
It’s time for milCloud® 2.0, a solution specifically designed to provide the performance, reliability and security our warfighters need to deliver on their mission.
