After migrating to the cloud, USAID knew it could streamline its transcription process of its leader’s public remarks with cloud technology. Read this blog to learn how USAID created a solution with Amazon Transcribe, an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered service from Amazon Web Services (AWS), in collaboration with AWS Partner CloudShape that helps the agency transcribe and publish remarks in minutes.
In this blog post, learn how Amazon Web Services (AWS) helps Government of Canada (GC) customers move workloads into production in the AWS Canadian Regions. This requires putting their workloads through the Security Assessment & Authorization (SA&A) process and can pose headwinds for GC customers developing applications to support digital modernization efforts.
The Landing Zone Accelerator on AWS (LZA) solution deploys a cloud foundation that is architected to align with AWS best practices and multiple global compliance frameworks. Customers with highly-regulated workloads and complex compliance requirements can use the LZA to better manage and govern their multi-account environment. Some of these same customers are also using VMware Cloud on AWS to integrate on-premises vSphere environments, allowing them to move existing workloads to the cloud more quickly. In this blog post, explore the technical considerations related to integrating your LZA landing zone with your VMware Cloud on the AWS environment.
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.
As more federal public sector organizations move toward cloud computing, many are looking for ways to make sure that they’re using the cloud effectively and efficiently. One way to do this is to establish a cloud center of excellence (CCoE). Learn how to build an effective CCoE to help streamline cloud adoption, security and innovation needs, reduce costs, and more.
New IDC whitepaper: How cloud drives government outcomes at scale and supports compliance with security requirements
A new IDC whitepaper explores how, with cloud, US federal agencies can achieve meaningful digital innovation while addressing their mission needs. As more agencies migrate applications and workloads to the cloud, including their most sensitive and heavily regulated data, a key consideration is meeting federal compliance and security mandates.
Transportation agencies are increasing their focus on cybersecurity prevention due to persistent threats. Learn how transportation agencies can use AWS to support four cybersecurity best practices and position their organizations against cyber threats.
Improving the customer experience (CX) has emerged as an imperative for government agencies. In this blog post, learn an architecture pattern that public institutions can use to improve CX while building and deploying secure, resilient, and performant web applications that support sudden surges in demand for public services. This architecture pattern addresses the need of an example use case in which an agency must request information from thousands to millions of civilians, who may access a single-page application at similar times, and then sends email notifications to each civilian to confirm their activity.
AWS announced the launch of the Cloud Audit Academy (CAA) for Federal and DoD Workloads (FDW) in AWS. This is a two-day accelerated training course to educate customers on how to leverage AWS services to assist with US Federal and Department of Defense (DoD) security and compliance requirements. This training course also qualifies for 12 hours of continuing professional education (CPE). Register at no cost today.
Booz Allen speeds migration and reduces costs for a US government agency with the AWS Migration Acceleration Program (MAP)
Moving sensitive US government data to the cloud requires the meticulous application of a proven migration methodology, skilled resources, a robust solution, and a mature logistics model. A US government agency elected to move its Security and Information Event Management (SIEM) system from a virtualized, on-premise environment to the AWS Cloud. AWS Partner Booz Allen performed the migration and used the AWS Migration Acceleration Program (MAP) and AWS Snow Family of devices as mechanisms to help the customer save time, reduce costs, and increase their agility to develop new features for their constituents.
