Cloud Integration & Data Center Consolidation
Cloud Integration and Data Center Consolidation are top concerns for large and small, government and private organizations alike looking to decrease infrastructure and instead focus on delivering mission critical IT services and innovation. TIAG's cloud integration and data center consolidation experts bring a unique understanding and proven approach to deliver flexibility, disaster recovery, and decreased costs. TIAG has been leading the way in the migration of essential government applications and services to Cloud-based environments such as the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Defense Enterprise Computing Center (DECC) and Microsoft Office 365.
The implementation of a hybrid approach that straddles the line between local servers and the cloud is a common strategy for organizations that wish to achieve many of the efficient operational and rapid scalability benefits while maintaining additional compliance and security options. Our depth and breadth of experience give us unparalleled insight into the benefits, challenges, and risks associated with migration to the cloud or consolidated data center. Applying our well practiced process, TIAG integrators lead organizations through a well-designed migration and consolidation effort. The result is better utilization of resources, increased availability of services, and lower costs of ownership and operation.
U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) Deputy Chief of Staff (DCS) for Warrior Care and Transition (WCT)
MEDCOM’s Deputy Chief of Staff for Warrior Care and Transition chose TIAG to modernize, streamline, optimize and maintain the Army Warrior Care and Transition System (AWCTS) — an integrated, unified, web-based application that assists ill and wounded soldiers throughout medical and rehabilitation processes, and during their transition back into the force or into veteran status. TIAG applied its expertise in clinical and business informatics, user-centered design, cloud integration and data center consolidation to update and maintain the system, in addition to incorporating customized features and reports for AWCTS, and delivering specialized training for the system.
The Defense Base Closure and Realignment (BRAC) required the Army’s largest health care facility, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, to migrate operations to the National Naval Medical Center and the newly established Fort Belvoir Community Hospital (FBCH). TIAG provided a strategic approach to accurately identify and rationalize the nearly 730 systems and applications. Our team architected and implemented a mobile virtual environment that simplified the transition of critical applications to the new data-centers, ensuring the absolute minimum level of disruption to healthcare delivery.
In support of AMC, TIAG spearheaded the consolidation of services, applications and datacenters throughout the command to enterprise hosting facilities. This has included review and assessment of current capabilities, preparation of services and applications for migration and virtualization of physical servers. These efforts have advanced the AMC CIO’s goals to standardize IT processes across the command, in turn consolidating redundant technology solutions.
The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation chose TIAG to provide cloud migration and integration expertise that transformed the organization from a legacy email service to a comprehensive Office 365 cloud- computing environment. TIAG seamlessly facilitated the process without downtime or loss in service, ensuring organizational collaboration and increased availability while eliminating hardware costs.
Supporting the U.S. Army’s need to decrease 450 data centers to 185 through fiscal year 2015, TIAG designed the blueprint for virtualization and cloud migration of enterprise services. In this work, our experts designed and implemented an enterprise-class configuration management database to provide multi-level visualization of infrastructure and application dependencies along with impact analysis to enhance decision-making capabilities.
