Engility launches Cloud ASCEND

Engility Holdings, Inc. of Chantilly, VA announced on May 31 the launch of Cloud ASCEND™, an end-to-end solution for enterprise cloud architecture, migration and optimization. Developed for the unique requirements of highly secure government enterprises, particularly within the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community, Cloud ASCEND brings a data-driven approach to customers that helps realize the benefits of cloud computing and enterprise modernization.

“Cloud ASCEND is another example of the innovative engineering that Engility is driving to support the federal government, for whom cloud migration is a huge priority,” said Amanda Brownfield, senior vice president for Engility’s Intelligence Solutions Group. “We look forward to working together with our customers and partners to tackle this critical step in advancing the government’s digital transformation.”

Cloud ASCEND combines commercial cloud tools with Engility’s proprietary methodology and team of certified cloud experts to help customers realize a seamless and secure digital transformation.

Engility leverages dynamic cloud analytic tools to deliver cloud migration in less time:

  • IBM Brokerage – Rapid assessment of enterprise systems for cloud readiness and mission benefit
  • Burstorm – Model, design, benchmark and optimize cloud infrastructure
  • Sequoia Combine – Model, develop and test systems bound for the Intelligence Community’s secure C2S cloud in an unclassified emulator
  • CSA STARWatch – Manage security compliance with industry standards and requirements

“While many organizations and agencies recognize that they need to migrate to the cloud, they are often hindered by not knowing when and how to get started,” said Kevin Jackson, Engility director of cloud solutions. “The process we use in the Cloud ASCEND solution delivers a clear, data-driven path to the cloud and ensures mission performance so that customers migrate with confidence.”
