General Dynamics Information Technology will utilize Gravitant Inc.’s new cloud services brokerage and management platform to support its new offerings intended to help government customers adopt secure and low-cost hybrid cloud computing.
The cloudMatrix offering will help General Dynamics deploy cloud services brokerage offerings to state and local governments and federal agencies, according to a Gravitant statement.
Mohammed Farooq, chairman and CEO at Gravitant, said the platform enables “system integrators, VARs, and larger enterprises to transform how they manage an IT supply chain that leverages cloud computing services.“
This platform is designed to help cut costs on information technology and allow for seamless remodeling of the infrastructure to adapt to the growing demands of clients, the Austin, Texas-based company added.
Gravitant noted that complex sourcing and usage of various public cloud service providers and scarce tools to integrate the IT supply chain pose a challenge to adopting cloud computing.
The cloudMatrix platform enables clients to centralize the design, purchase and deployment of services across hybrid cloud computing systems under a common management framework, the company said.
The tool can serve as both a business and IT management hub for just-in-time International Technology Transfer Management, speeding up adoption of cloud computing.
