Leidos, Microsoft to Support Artificial Intelligence Adoption in Public Sector
Microsoft and Reston, Virginia-based Leidos have agreed to collaborate on driving artificial intelligence adoption and usage in the government. The partnership is expected to focus in the near term on developing generative AI to improve organizational efficiency, productivity and cross-domain applications, Leidos said.
Steve Hull, Leidos’ executive vice president of enterprise and cyber solutions operation and a 4×24 member, said working with Microsoft will facilitate co-innovation through cloud and AI.
According to Angela Heise, Microsoft’s corporate VP for the worldwide public sector, combining her organization’s cloud, AI and cyber capabilities with Leidos’ national security knowledge will produce solutions for many public-sector challenges.
The two companies already work together to provide various services to the Department of Defense. Leidos recently transitioned 20 programs from an on-premise data center to the Microsoft Azure Government cloud environment as part of a Department of the Navy enterprise network support program.
In late 2022, the companies linked an edge-to-cloud capability with Azure during the U.S. Army’s annual Project Convergence exercise.
