Organizations deal with ever-growing data volumes. This means that growth-minded businesses must put data at the heart of every application, process, and decision. But how you use your organization’s data is the key to accelerating innovation and accomplishing your organizational goals.
Many public sector customers are interested in building secure, cost-effective, reliable, and highly performant applications. Technologies like containerization and serverless help customers migrate and modernize their applications. In this blog post, learn how public sector customers use offerings from AWS like AWS Lambda, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) to build modern applications supporting diverse use cases, including those driven by machine learning (ML) and generative artificial intelligence (AI). If you want to learn more on this topic, please register to attend the webinar series, Build Modern Applications on AWS.
Some US federal agencies and those who collaborate with them must support an automated, secure, and scalable multi-account cloud environment that meets Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) and Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) standards. To support these needs, AWS customers and partners can deploy the Landing Zone Accelerator (LZA) on AWS. Recently, AWS worked with Coalfire, a FedRAMP-approved third-party assessment organization (3PAO) and AWS Partner, to assess and verify the LZA solution.
Implement a secure, serverless GraphQL architecture in AWS GovCloud (US) to optimize API flexibility and efficiency
GraphQL is a query language and server-side runtime system for application programming interfaces (APIs) that prioritizes giving clients exactly the information they request and no more. GraphQL can help public sector customers focus on their data and provide ways to explore the data in their APIs. Learn a reference architecture using serverless technologies that you can use to build GraphQL-enabled solutions in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions to unify data access in real-time and simplify operations.
There may be use cases where customers must orchestrate actions spanning AWS GovCloud (US) and standard AWS partitions. The common reasons customers may need to invoke AWS services in a standard account from an AWS GovCloud (US) account (or vice versa) include: cross-domain applications, feature parity, and if the AWS service doesn’t exist in AWS GovCloud (US). In this blog post, learn how to navigate these scenarios.
Public sector regulatory agencies are at an inflection point as digital assets have emerged in the private sector in the form of cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). To inform this process, AWS has collaborated with industry analyst firm, Constellation Research, to write a new research report available to the public. “The CIO Imperative for Digital Assets in the Public Sector” presents an exploration of the requisite topics to get CIOs and their teams up-to-speed and ready for this journey.
AWS IAM Identity Center (successor to AWS Single Sign-On) provides administrators with a simple way to manage identity and access (IAM) across numerous AWS accounts. IAM Identity Center is available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions, enabling customers to simply manage access to numerous AWS accounts in their AWS GovCloud (US) organizations. In this blog post, learn four different architecture patterns for providing an organization’s AWS users with access to both standard and AWS GovCloud (US) accounts using IAM Identity Center that can help minimize administrative overhead and simplify the user experience.
In early 2020, the Norton Police Department’s (NPD) on-premises, legacy system, failed them for the last time. Lifesaving services were down. To revive them, NPD made the decision to go live on AWS Partner SOMA Global’s public safety platform—six months ahead of the scheduled cutover date. Despite the early deployment, the SOMA platform exceeded expectations, making sure critical emergency call-taking and dispatching continued. Using SOMA also helped NPD cut costs and save time. Read on to learn how the NPD found a successful partnership with SOMA Global in their time of need.
How to improve government customer experience by building a modern serverless web application in AWS GovCloud (US)
Modern applications built using microservices architectures improve customer experience by dramatically reducing the risk of failures in a web application. In this blog post, we present a sample AWS reference architecture of a microservices application built using an architecture framework based in AWS GovCloud (US), which can help support adherence to a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) High Baseline.
This blog post explores the options US public sector customers and their business partners should evaluate when selecting an AWS partition. We discuss the differences between AWS GovCloud (US) and the AWS standard partition and how to decide which partition may be the best match for your organization’s security, compliance, and availability needs.
