US Army’s Cloud Migration Proceeds Through $127M Task Order to Accenture Federal Services

The U.S. Army has tapped Accenture Federal Services for its Enterprise Application Modernization and Migration program, geared to accelerate the transition of the service branch’s legacy applications to the cloud. 

According to Accenture, the Army’s EAMM task order has a potential value of $127 million, with a one-year base period and two optional years. Most of the applications will be moved from the service’s data centers to the Army’s enterprise multi-cloud environment, providing shared access to applications, systems and data, Accenture said Monday.

The contract’s tasks include assessments of the applications for cloud transition and providing recommendations on the cloud migration process, including system modernization, the company added. Dana Oliver, AFS managing director, assured that the company’s cloud modernization capabilities can meet the Army’s mission needs and “digital-first mindset.”

During the Army IT Day conference in January 2023, Army Undersecretary Gabe Camarillo announced a planned EAMM spending of $290 million. Raj Iyer, the Army’s chief information officer, unveiled the cloud migration program in October 2022 as a potential $1 billion multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

In September, AFS booked a potential five-year, $25 million U.S. Air Force contract to modernize the Air Force Sustainment Center’s operations, which is expected to include the integration of cloud and edge computing technology. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is another Accenture customer on cloud migration, with its three-year, $189 million contract for the services awarded in October 2022.
