BAE Systems and Flexera announce strategic partnership

BAE Systems of McLean, VA announced on August 13 a new strategic partnership with Flexera to help government agencies moving to the cloud better manage their software licenses and more accurately plan and budget for their future information technology (IT) needs.

Under the partnership, BAE Systems, a company with unparalleled experience managing the cloud complexities that arise during cloud migrations, will integrate Flexera’s leading asset and license management tools into its scalable, hybrid cloud environment for government. The federated secure cloud, developed by BAE Systems and Dell EMC, is designed from the ground up to meet mission needs and security requirements for any U.S. Intelligence Community, Department of Defense (DoD), or federal/civilian government organization.

“With our federated secure cloud, we’re helping government agencies rethink how they share data, analyze information, and collaborate across their enterprises real-time while remaining consistent with strict governance and security requirements,” said Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Intelligence Solutions business. “It’s only natural that we’d partner with Flexera – a company reimagining how government IT assets and software licenses are bought, sold, managed, and secured.”

Flexera’s rich technology asset data, automation capabilities, and analytics will add a new dimension to the complexities of software licensing in a federated secure cloud. It will empower adopters to get the most out of their IT investments.

“Together with BAE Systems, we are providing government agencies with a secure mission-ready cloud that arrives fully-embedded with the tools necessary to mitigate the complicated and potentially costly hardware and software license management challenges many agencies fear when moving to cloud environments,” said Cindy Grogan, vice president of Global Alliances at Flexera.

The federated secure cloud has the flexibility to operate seamlessly on any Microsoft Azure, AWS or on-premise cloud system, yet can be customized to support any government organization transitioning to a secure hybrid cloud environment – to include smaller forward-operating units.

BAE Systems delivers a broad range of solutions and services enabling militaries and governments to successfully carryout their missions. The company provides large-scale systems engineering, integration, and sustainment services across air, land, sea, space, and cyber domains. BAE Systems takes pride in its support of national security and those who serve.
