SAIC - Cloud Computing at SAIC

 

Cloud Computing at SAIC

Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), based in McLean, Virginia, provides information technology, system integration, and e-business solutions worldwide. These solutions include big data and analytics, cloud computing, cybersecurity, IT managed services, networks and communications, and software and mobility services. SAIC’s primary customer is the United States government, but its 13,000 employees also deliver systems engineering and integration offerings to large-scale government and commercial projects across the globe.

What is unique about SAIC is their dedication to delivering quality mission-oriented technical services and solutions and to contributing to the security of our nation and the well-being of our local communities. They not only believe high ethical standards are essential to achieving individual and corporate goals but they can also apply their core values to all their interactions with their customers, fellow employees, suppliers and subcontractors, neighbors, and stockholders.

vCloud Air represents an opportunity to create synergies between existing vSphere deployments and the investments SAIC has already made in operational procedures. For the company, the solution is familiar, less expensive and faster to deploy than other cloud service provider options—all of which leads to increased availability of services for SAIC clients and higher customer satisfaction.

The addition of VMware vCloud Government Services provided by Carpathia makes it easier to address security concerns while offering hybrid cloud services to public sector clients. SAIC sees vCloud Government Services as being almost the perfect platform for delivering enterprise IT that includes cloud but also recognizes that there’s a much broader set of services that have to be delivered in the IT portfolio.

"At SAIC, we use vCloud Air because we already have a large investment in vSphere technology. It was very straight forward for us to migrate our IT Services from our existing virtualization environment into a vCloud Air Platform. Additionally, we have a large base of trained personnel on VMWare Management technologies making it very easy for us to integrate our technology with VMWare's Cloud Service Provider offerings known as vCloud Air."

"SAIC sees vCloud Government Services as being a very viable Cloud Services Platforms for the entire US Government. It's one of the reasons we are heavily investing in becoming very technically proficient and building solutions on top of it. The Federal App Accredited Cloud Provider environment that VMWare offers provides a migration path for vSphere users today which is a large portion of our customer base that makes it straight forward to integrate with existing management solutions and to migrate workloads back and forth between that Fed App Accredited Community Cloud and their existing private side Cloud environment."

Tribune Media

 

Business Transformation at Tribune Media

Tribune Media has over 42 owned or operated TV Stations, WGN Cable, Gracenote for Entertainment Metadata and Tribune Movie Studios, and is one of the nation’s largest independent broadcasters. VMware has really helped Tribune Media stop the conversations around technology, focusing instead on the outcomes it needs to operate the business. Now they can concentrate on increasing security capabilities, decreasing costs and responding to customer needs faster. Tribune Media can grow the business and go after new markets, and that translates into more revenue per customer.

“VMware has been really critical to drive the fluidity back to the business. My head of engineering has literally a saying over his door. It says, ‘If we can’t automate it we don’t need it’. If we deploy an application in our infrastructure to automate processes, we give that time back. What ends up showing up to the business is our ability to do more projects and do them faster, cheaper and better.”

— David Giambruno, SVP and CIO, Tribune Media

Tribune Media

 

See How Tribune Media Succeeds with VMware Automation

See how Tribune Media tripled its productivity and kept staffing costs in check with the VMware vRealize Cloud Management Platform, including vRealize Automation. Application setup and configure times are now measured in minutes instead of days, all with help from VMware's Cloud Management Platform.

“In five months, we set up this infrastructure. We moved 141 apps onto the infrastructure and we had 9 helpdesk calls. So guess what? It works. It really works.”

“We have gone from the Flintstones to the Jetsons in less than 18 months."

“It’s literally ‘click a button’ to provide services and capabilities out to the business. We operate in minutes and seconds, not days and weeks.”

— David Giambruno, Senior Vice President and CIO, Tribune Media

VIF International Education and VMware

 

User traffic on VIF International Education's Learning Center, an online professional development platform for K–12 educators, grew by more than 500 percent in one year, but its on-premises IT infrastructure couldn’t keep up. This mission-critical service was running on a single server blade without power or network redundancy, leading to unacceptably high downtime. By moving to the VMware vCloud® Air™ platform, VIF gained vastly higher availability and near-unlimited scalability, improved resource utilization by 300 percent, and reduced its IT systems management workload.

VIF International Education builds global education programs that prepare teachers and students for success in an interconnected world.

Boekel De Nerée

 

Boekel De Nerée wilde haar serveromgeving consolideren om de hoeveelheid hardware terug te dringen. Op basis van VMware vSphere heeft Boekel De Nerée inmiddels 95 procent van de alle servers gevirtualiseerd, inclusief de bedrijfskritische systemen voor SAP, document management, SharePoint en mobiele apparatuur. Met VMware heeft het bedrijf meer grip op de centrale serveromgeving die alle bedrijfsapplicaties ondersteunt.

“Een belangrijk aspect van VMware is dat we nu onafhankelijk van hardware zijn, waardoor de flexibiliteit is toegenomen. Een nieuwe server inrichten is nu een kwestie van minuten. Voorheen duurde dit aanzienlijk langer. Capaciteit is dus ‘on-the-fly’ beschikbaar. Daarmee vergroten we de slagkracht van de IT-organisatie, maar belangrijker is dat we kernactiviteiten effectiever ondersteunen tegen lagere kosten.”

— Frank Keessen, ICT manager Boekel De Nerée

Gemeente Zoetermeer

 

De gemeente Zoetermeer verving de verouderde desktops door virtuele desktops op basis van VMware View. De gemeente wilde resources on demand kunnen bijschakelen en kunnen inspelen op de snel veranderende markt. Ook dient de gemeente te voldoen aan compliancy-regels die onder meer stellen dat bepaalde activiteiten binnen twee dagen weer up-and-running moeten zijn na een calamiteit. Door over te stappen op desktopvirtualisatie kan de gemeente aan al deze eisen voldoen.

"Wij hebben een keuze gemaakt voor VMware View om een aantal belangrijke knelpunten op te lossen. Je moet hierbij denken aan verbeterde flexibiliteit. Flexibiliteit om vanaf elke werkplek in te loggen met behoud van eigen zelf samengestelde desktop beleving, plaatsonafhankelijk werken en het losknippen van de afhankelijkheden tussen hardware van de computer, besturingssystemen en de applicaties."

— Richard Thiele, ICT-projectleider, gemeente Zoetermeer

Met deze aanpak ondersteunt het de gehele ICT-keten van bijvoorbeeld fi nanciële dienstverleners, retailbedrijven en energiemaatschappijen; van functionele uptime tot de interfaces met derde partijen. Om klanten maximale fl exibiliteit, beschikbaarheid en performance te bieden, optimaliseert Schuberg Philis continu haar eigen infrastructuur en processen. Daarbij heeft het bedrijf inmiddels een aantal jaar geleden ook de stap naar netwerkvirtualisatie gezet.

“Een nieuwe server opzetten is niet langer een kwestie van netwerken optuigen, machines inrichten en de bekabeling in orde maken. We kunnen VMs én netwerken snel modelleren en het applicatielandschap razendsnel uitrollen. Dit proces kostte voorheen al snel een paar weken. We kunnen het nu in ruim 18 minuten. Dat is enorme tijdwinst.”

— Edwin Beekman, Netwerk engineer bij Schuberg Philis
