Unisys awarded Virtustream a subcontract in 2013 to provide an enterprise cloud computing platform to host FBMS.

“The [department’s] migration of its financial management system to the cloud marks a milestone in the U.S. federal government’s push to harness the benefits of cloud computing,” added Casey Coleman, group vice president of Unisys’ federal civilian agencies business.

FBMS is a financial management application built on SAP‘s enterprise resource planning software.

DOI became the first federal agency to move a SAP-based financial management application to the cloud through this migration, Unisys said.
