Science Applications International Corp. has created a virtual laboratory environment in a move to help federal customers accelerate the development of information technology software platforms.
Red Hat’s OpenShift container application platform serves as foundation of the cloud-based lab.
Charles Onstott, a senior vice president and chief technology officer of SAIC, said that Innovation Factory is intended to help clients test artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, blockchain and internet-of-things technologies.
The company will initially host Innovation Factory in Reston, Va., and intends to work with customers to deploy the platform at their facilities.
SAIC noted a team of professionals who knows about agile and DevOps methods and cloud-native architectures will support clients through the lab.
