DLT Solutions, a leading value-added reseller in government information technology (IT) software and services, today announced the launch of DLT Cloud Navigator, a new initiative that provides public sector customers with simplified access to today’s leading products, services, contracts, tools and expertise for cloud computing.
“Cloud computing is a groundbreaking technology; one which Deltek is predicting the federal market to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 30% over the next three years,” said David Blankenhorn, chief cloud technologist at DLT Solutions. “With such significant growth forecasted and many of our customers already seeing the tangible benefits such as cost savings, improved efficiency, and agility and scalability of their IT environments, we see the need for increased guidance and a more practical approach to cloud computing. Understanding how different cloud deployment models (public, private, hybrid and community) and service models (Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service) fit together to achieve desired business outcomes can be a challenge.”
DLT Cloud Navigator brings together a unique blend of product offerings from some of today’s leading cloud vendors; comprehensive architectural support and managed services; seamless procurement through a wide-variety of contract vehicles; and comprehensive pay-as-you-go billing, account management and back office support to meet the growing need for cloud computing across the public sector. In April, DLT Solutions announced its new private platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering, CODEvolved. Architected by DLT Solutions, CODEvolved is available immediately and brings together Red Hat’s award-winning OpenShift Enterprise and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver a rapid application development, testing and hosting environment built entirely in the cloud.
“In 2011, we introduced the DLT Cloud Advisory Group, a team of IT professionals dedicated to helping public sector customers better understand the intricacies of cloud computing,” said Rick Marcotte, president and CEO of DLT Solutions. “DLT Cloud Navigator takes the expertise built from the advisory group even further by incorporating cloud procurement expertise, comprehensive professional service capabilities, and back-office support to give agencies and organizations everything they need to realize their cloud computing goals under one roof. DLT Cloud Navigator is designed to provide agencies with enhanced clarity and support the entirety of their cloud journey – from developing a strategy and choosing a solution to implementing, managing, and supporting a cloud environment long term to ensure maximum utilization of the technology by our customers.”
