Unisys (NYSE: UIS) has devised an “Application Modernization Platform as a Service” offering, a subscription-based service to help federal government agencies cut the cost, complexity, risk and time involved in modernizing their legacy software applications.
The platform can be implemented through a cloud infrastructure or hosted on-site and is aimed at helping federal organizations save time during enterprise platform integration and procurement.
AMPS unifies services, IT infrastructure, and applications from providers including EMC, Red Hat, Terremark and SOA Software.
“The AMPS platform builds on Unisys’ strength in mission critical computing to enable federal organizations to accelerate their application modernization initiatives by sidestepping traditional constraints that can slow progress,” said Gene Zapfel, managing partner for portfolio solutions, Unisys Federal Systems. “AMPS significantly reduces capital expenditure and reduces total cost of ownership, which are especially important as federal IT budgets remain tight. Unisys AMPS offers agencies a path to incrementally modernize their enterprise applications and create more cost-effective shared services.”
