We've come a long way delivering innovative solutions. But our next chapter is still being written.
Just over a year ago at South by Southwest 2016, we introduced Codelift, an innovative application that allows users with any level of Docker experience to create and deploy Docker containers with the click of a button. Since then, we’ve worked with commercial and federal customers in various stages of Docker maturity levels—like the General Services Administration (GSA)—to modernize applications and move to open and microservices-ready architectures.
At the 2017 annual Docker Federal Summit, Booz Allen and Docker announced we’re joining forces to help our customers move towards containerization and microservices. Through the Docker Modernize Traditional Applications (MTA) Program, we’re introducing a unique joint offering that allows organizations to containerize traditional applications to be more secure, efficient, and portable in private and hybrid cloud infrastructure.
“Our clients look to us to provide digital solutions which are secure and resilient at production scale, while delivering new capability with velocity.”
With the joint offering, we’re taking a comprehensive approach to container adoption that goes beyond technology insertion to consider business needs and missions, supporting frameworks, DevOps elements (e.g., continuous integration and continuous deployment) and maturity, and security and enterprise IT roadmapping. In addressing these critical, yet often overlooked components, our strategy ensures long-term success and a higher ROI in Docker adoption.
This unique offering is a major step towards future collaborative developments. To further foster collaboration and advance our commitment in open source, Booz Allen will also play a role in the Docker-sponsored open source project, Moby Project. As a first step, we’ll be collaborating to open source Codelift to help customers move to Docker faster and easier.
Docker has revolutionized the IT landscape by popularizing containerization as an alternative to virtual machines. And no one understands the platform better than the organization that created it. Booz Allen has more than 100 years of experience in systems integration and innovation, helping the world’s biggest organizations tackle their most complex IT challenges. Together, the two companies have collaborated on several joint commercial and federal client engagements.
“Our partnership with Docker, and this MTA program, enables us to bring the latest in container technology to our clients, which drives the modernization of their legacy applications, and helps move them towards a cloud-native environment.”
