Amazon Web Services helped the Department of Justice’s tax division develop an application in less than two months to streamline the process for employees seeking approval for their telework requests and enable DOJ to implement a hybrid work arrangement as part of their return-to-office policy.
The development team at DOJ’s tax division tapped AWS Professional Services and Favor TechConsulting, an AWS partner, to build an enterprise-level application using tools in AWS GovCloud (US), AWS said in a blog post published Friday.
Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database designed to run high-performance apps and offers automated multi-Region replication, built-in security, in-memory caching, continuous backups and data export and import tools.
Amazon ECS is a container orchestration service meant to help developers manage, deploy and scale containerized applications.
The department unveiled the authorization app on April 1 and AWS said 40 percent of personnel at the tax division had used the app to request approval for their telework requests within five days of the tool’s launch.
