US Air Force Launches Data-as-a-Service Offering on Cloud One
The U.S. Air Force‘s Business and Enterprise Systems Product Innovation team has announced that its operational capability data-as-a-service offering was launched into production on Cloud One.
DaaS provides authorized users with easy yet secure access to data for Air Force applications. It serves as a conduit that connects the data source to application teams developing offerings to meet mission needs.
DaaS features include authentication, application programming interfaces and security controls. It also enables single sign-on features for users.
The offering has been used in various BESPIN platforms, the Air Force Materiel Command said.
DaaS was developed and launched in partnership with Omni Federal, a small business that creates digital solutions for data, analytics, business process automation, cloud and other federal government applications. BESPIN and Omni will continue working on DaaS under a Phase III Small Business Innovation Research contract to add data access, analytics and artificial intelligence capabilities to the product.
At the end of the SBIR Phase III effort, DaaS is expected to enable accelerated application migration to the cloud, provide improved security, eliminate duplicative work and reduce cyber risks.
Cloud One is the Air Force’s cloud hosting service that offers reliable access to Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Google Cloud environments and services. Science Applications International Corp., the prime industry partner of Cloud One, provides integrated commercial clouds and other offerings such as zero trust security, migration services and other support services.
