Intelligence analysts must be able to access data from cloud computing platforms to support information-based services and insights for agencies, DigitalGlobe services business lead Tony Frazier told National Defense magazine in an article published Monday.

Longmont, Colorado-based DigitalGlobe announced its $140 million acquisition of geospatial information services provider The Radiant Group Oct. 11 and will add 400 employees with secret security clearances with 250 of them software developers.

Frazier told the magazine Radiant’s software development and engineering workforce were important factors in the acquisition as intelligence agencies shift toward greater use of cloud-based applications and applied data science techniques with cost as a key consideration.

“One of our goals is to help build ecosystems, encourage more providers of algorithms to help answer questions and create new demands for imagery,” Frazier said to National Defense magazine.

Radiant brings to DigitalGlobe positions on 80 new contract vehicles with agencies such as the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, Defense Intelligence Agency and U.S. Special Operations Command.
