London, U.K., 11 May 2017 – Amido, a vendor-agnostic technical consultancy specialising in assembling and integrating proven cloud technologies, was selected by Coats to help build a scalable platform that will help its customer base to manage its corporate responsibility during the supply chain process, furthering the company’s commitment to digitally transform its services. The application went live in December 2016 and is one of the first enterprises to use Azure Container Services in a customer facing environment. By using Amido’s expertise in technical design, integration and deployment of applications, Coats successfully launched a web portal on a container-based platform, marking this as the challenger to industry sceptics who define container solutions as simply ‘hype.’ Amido’s recommendation to use containers came from Coats’ requirements for an adaptable, scalable and easily manageable platform that would adhere to the strict regulations of international trading. With large investments from Amazon, Google and Microsoft, the option of containers is becoming a viable solution even at this stage of its infancy; and over the next three years, Amido predicts that there will be a large rise in its implementation. Yet Amido warns that not every organisation can benefit from its use as not all applications are suitable. The industry still views containers as hype with no long-term value in the enterprise. For Coats, however, the opposite is true. Chris Gray, Technical Director of Amido, adds: ‘Containers give you more control over the infrastructure you are deploying. This is because you are not creating a Virtual Machine for every instance of an application, meaning deployments are rapid and the overhead of the operating system is significantly lower. This combination is powerful as it means that we can issue an upgrade/change that will take effect almost immediately, without disruption to the general use of the portal. For companies where Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is severely monitored, this advantage of application upgrades and changes is vital, especially when committed to digitally transform its services - without the added costs legacy systems can bring.’ Basheer Shahul, Digital Solutions Director, at Coats, says: ‘We are breaking new ground in our industry with this platform. Speed is everything so scaling and adapting is very important to us. We needed to find a system that would offer flexibility when we have to change or adjust applications so we looked for a partner that understood all technologies, platforms and applications to help us. Amido met these requirements and we were able to create a system that not only challenged container-use perception at an enterprise level, but also did so in a timely and cost-effective manner.’ Amido warns that containers are not a magic fix for all legacy or monolithic solutions and the decision to containerise software needs to be considered carefully. Containers are valuable when monolithic applications can be split into smaller components which can be distributed across a containerised infrastructure; but this is not to say that any application will work, just that care needs to be taken to see if it is suitable for containerised deployment. With this in mind, the new container-driven customer portal exposed a real need for DevOps skills, emphasising the shift and increasing demand for IT skills in the market today. DevOp Skills Gap: The Obliteration of Monolithic IT Pedagogy The skills are shifting and lines are blurring between the developer and IT operation teams. During the development stage of the container-based platform, Coats and Amido highlighted that the skills required in maintaining this platform extended beyond the traditional enterprise skills. The market is seeing how enterprises of all sizes are harnessing powerful technology tools that require software engineers who are not only software-coding-savvy, but platform agnostic in terms of infrastructure development. Chris Gray, Technical Director of Amido, elaborates: ‘DevOps in the enterprise has always been mostly focused around tooling and processes in the development of software, with “operations” such as support and monitoring still handled by separate teams, but utilising deployment platforms such as containers bring that final piece of the puzzle back to the development teams. Developers and DevOps engineers who can embrace methodologies such as containers are more attractive to clients like Coats - Times are shifting beyond the “it works on my machine, so I’ll let the ops guys handle it.” IT skills are changing and we see this only as a positive move given that production-like infrastructure is used throughout the deployment chain. DevOps is no longer two separate roles, which is pretty special to see - at Amido we have invested in our talent to cross-pollenate skills; this is why our clients are keen to work with us.’ In addition to this, migrating skills reduces support levels as routine software upgrades and maintenance can be handled within development sprints, rather than employing whole teams to look after it. However, until the nirvana of self-healing infrastructure is realised, it is still best practice to have a view of the production infrastructure from within support teams to ensure security and scalability issues can be dealt with in a timely manner. About Amido Amido is an independent technical consultancy that specialises in implementing cloud-first solutions. We help our clients build resilience at scale, flexibility for the future and differentiation of customer experience. And, we do this while minimising business-risk and build-cost.

MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) announced the opening of a new, expanded office in Charleston, S.C. which will function as a Digital Hub to support the rapid growth of the firm’s Digital Solutions business. The state-of-the-art, 75,000 square-foot facility offers a tech-forward, open and multipurpose floor plan designed to foster collaboration on mission-critical projects and deliver new levels of innovation for clients including the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the U.S. Navy. This new facility complements the more than 30,000 square feet of office, lab and warehouse space the firm also holds in North Charleston primarily supporting the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic. Booz Allen has been a leader in the Charleston community since the 1990s, and today employs more than 550 across Charleston and North Charleston and serves clients ranging from the U.S. Navy to U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The firm’s professionals in the region are experts in areas as diverse as Agile and DevOps to data analytics, cloud technology and systems engineering to logistics and cyber. At its newly expanded Charleston Digital Hub at Clements Ferry Road, the firm expects to expand from 310+ to 400+ employees by calendar year’s end to capitalize on the growing demand for its digital services. This latest expansion is projected to bring at least $10 million of new capital investment. That team supports the company’s work with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Veterans Benefit Management System, using agile methodologies to transform the VA’s paper-intensive compensation and pension claims system to a web-based, paperless system. Today, the digital transition has decreased the backlog in claims for veterans’ benefits by 87 percent, and reduced the average wait time for a claim decision by 100 days. Digital Solutions offers clients an interconnected set of high-demand solutions to make enterprises work faster and more efficiently. “Within Digital Solutions, we are integrating emerging technologies, a deep understanding of our clients’ missions and our 100+ year consulting heritage to drive technology modernization and support user adoption,” said Gary Labovich, executive vice president, Digital Solutions leader, Booz Allen Hamilton. “The SPARC acquisition advances our Digital growth strategy by expanding the scale of our services to support our clients’ demand for transformative technology.” The Clements Ferry Road facility is one of five hubs within Booz Allen’s Digital Solutions Network which connects and unifies the firm’s 4,000+ Digital Solutions practitioners. To expand after its acquisition of the software services unit of SPARC in 2015, Booz Allen began construction on a new addition to the existing facility, but, in July 2016, the adjacent original building caught fire, causing extensive damage. In continuity with the construction schedule and client deliverables, the firm stayed the course, coordinating with clients to allow employees to work remotely and use temporary office space to remain fully operational. “We are excited to demonstrate our continued commitment to the Charleston community through the opening of our new client-focused Digital Hub with the intent to grow and develop local tech talent,” said Charleston-based Elizabeth Buske, vice president, Booz Allen Hamilton. “The facility will represent an R&D space that will allow us to build, test and refine enterprise software solutions alongside our clients. Through this process of collective ingenuity, our clients will reach solutions in real time and on budget, achieving efficiencies and cost savings at scale.” The opening of the firm’s new hub is part of the company’s continued investment in Charleston, and Vision 2020 – its plan to develop client solutions and drive transformational growth through investments in people, capabilities and markets. Booz Allen’s Digital Solutions work includes the creation of an optimized website with an automated online assistant for the Department of Defense Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) that successfully helps U.S. citizens—including approximately 150,000 military members deployed to more than 150 countries worldwide—vote in federal elections. For more on the impact of our work, visit: BoozAllen.com/insights. In partnership with Booz Allen, Agracil, Inc. and Frampton Construction provided development and general contractor services and McMillan Pazdan Smith served as the primary architect of the new office space.

Today, the firm provides management and technology consulting and engineering services to leading Fortune 500 corporations, governments, and not-for-profits across the globe.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Digital agriculture — a term that’s used increasingly — means something different depending on which agricultural company or employee is asked. Some say it’s all about data. Others say it’s about precision agriculture. At Syngenta, digital agriculture means turning data into meaningful information that farmers use to run their operations more productively and profitably, provide sustainability performance downstream, and protect their resources including soil, water and biodiversity. While Syngenta has built a track record in digital ag for nearly two decades, the company is expanding this capability. Dan Burdett, who has 20+ years industry expertise, has been named head, global digital agriculture and will lead the company’s overall strategy and implementation in this area. Burdett was most recently head of customer marketing, where he was instrumental in the 2015 acquisition of Ag Connections and expanding the footprint of AgriEdge Excelsior®, a whole-farm management program, to 14 million acres in the United States. “At the most basic level, Syngenta’s approach to digital agriculture is driven by growers’ needs and the global needs of ag productivity,” said Burdett. “That’s why we are focusing on technologies and tools that can complement the agronomic and economic depth of a grower’s operation. We are taking a similar approach to bring value to commercial growers, our plant breeders and seed production growers, by aggressively leveraging data analytics. By connecting digital agriculture capabilities to our product lines, our sales teams and our channel partners, we have the opportunity to differentiate ourselves in this active space.” In validating new concepts and bringing viable technologies to the field, Burdett and his team will collaborate globally across multiple business areas, including R&D, Syngenta Ventures, commercial, and production and supply functions. “Dan is a great leader to develop a digital capabilities ecosystem, while supporting our growers every step of the way,” said Alexander Tokarz, head of business development for Syngenta. “He has spent his entire career providing value to growers. He understands their needs. Moreover, the agriculture industry is feeling the impact of technology disruption, and Dan and his team are positioned to judiciously harness new tools and concepts by building capabilities internally, and seeking out strategic partners and opportunities.” In North America, Syngenta’s long history of providing valuable tools for growers to manage their farm operations holistically is now broadening its scope with the newly formed Digital Agriculture Solutions group. Led by Aaron Deardorff, head, Digital Solutions at Syngenta, this team is focused on developing integrated grower offers enabled by AgriEdge Excelsior® and the company’s Sustainable Solutions group strategies and initiatives. “We’re expanding our ability to offer growers more value through the new Digital Agriculture Solutions group. We are piggybacking on the success that both Syngenta and Ag Connections have created with growers for more than 15 years, and taking it to a higher level,” said Deardorff. In 2015, Syngenta acquired farm management software developer Ag Connections as a wholly owned subsidiary following a 14-year relationship. Ag Connections works extensively with Syngenta on its AgriEdge Excelsior program, which delivers leading software, trusted on-farm service and innovative product recommendations to growers. Syngenta has been recognized for its data analytics innovation over the past few years. For instance, in 2015 the company won the Franz Edelman Award from INFORMS for its use of advanced analytics in soybean breeding. The award is known as the Nobel Prize for advanced mathematics, and the company won against the likes of IBM, Ingram Micro, the U.S. Army and three others. Similarly, Syngenta won the 2015 ANA Genius Award for Analytics Innovation, beating out IBM and Adobe for the prize. Syngenta is a leading agriculture company helping to improve global food security by enabling millions of farmers to make better use of available resources. Through world class science and innovative crop solutions, our 28,000 people in over 90 countries are working to transform how crops are grown.
