NJVC® and Gravitant® Announce New Strategic Alliance: Partnership to Benefit Federal Agencies with Powerful Provision and Management of Cloud Services that Unify Multiple Providers
Vienna, Va., April 4, 2012 — NJVC®, one of the largest information technology solutions providers supporting the U.S. Department of Defense, and Gravitant®, a provider of cloud brokerage and management solutions for IT enterprises, announce a new strategic alliance. Under the terms of the partnership, the two companies will launch a cobranded cloud portal later this spring designed specifically to support the federal government’s planning, provisioning and management of cloud services across multiple providers.
“The consulting and business development expertise of NJVC and the software product line of Gravitant have great synergy,” said Kevin Jackson, NJVC vice president and general manager, cloud services. “NJVC government customers will now have one centralized place for all their cloud needs, and can rest assured that the underlying tools of the soon-to-be-announced portal will constantly optimize the cloud in their favor.”
The cobranded cloud portal will provide government customers access to existing Gravitant infrastructure-as-a service products (e.g., cloudScreen™ and cloudMatrix™). Under the terms of the agreement, NJVC will be the official supplier of the portal to federal customers, and will offer product-related consulting services, and its proven expertise and thought leadership in government cloud adoption and management for these highly secure and demanding IT environments.
“The cloud portal in essence will offer command and control for federal IT customers,” said Dr. Ilyas Iyoob, Gravitant director, advanced analytics. “Now CIOs and CTOs will be able to monitor the entire IT infrastructure on a ‘single pane of glass’ and leverage the power of predictive analytics to identify and resolve potential bottlenecks ahead of time. This will increase the agility of NJVC federal customers in meeting their mission requirements, and greatly minimize their operational and financial risks.”
