Science Applications International Corp. announced a $5 million strategic investment in Morpheus Data, a leading provider of cloud automation and platform engineering solutions.
“This investment is aligned with SAIC’s strategy to seamlessly integrate best-in-class technologies to improve outcomes for our customers,” said Andy Henson, vice president, Digital Innovation at SAIC. “By combining our research and development priorities with Morpheus, we offer a compelling solution both significantly accelerating service delivery provisioning cycles and improving transparency in multi-cloud environments. This investment allows SAIC to address a strong and growing pipeline of Secure Cloud opportunities.”
Morpheus’ software will be the orchestration engine within CloudScendTM, SAIC’s cohesive suite of solutions for customers exploring, migrating and operating within the cloud environment. CloudScend has had an essential role in driving SAIC’s growth in the Secure Cloud market, which represents over $1 billion in annual revenue for SAIC.
“SAIC’s strategy to integrate Morpheus into CloudScend validates that close partnerships with systems integrators will accelerate our federal business,” said Ted Danielson, President at Morpheus. “This investment will allow us to further advance our solution and widen our advantage in the market while ensuring we maintain the speed and agility which has been key to our success.”
Launched in 2015, Morpheus enables a unified approach to hybrid cloud management and platform operations for some of the largest Fortune 1000 companies and public sector organizations around the world. The platform offers a completely agnostic approach enabling the integration of dozens of third-party tools into a well governed self-service framework that addresses people, process, tools and technology to help teams move quickly while also reducing cost and risk.
“Agencies often seek best-in-class commercial technology to accelerate provisioning and delivery of services,” said Adelaide O’Brien, research vice president, IDC Government Insights. “When this is coupled with a secure cloud management platform designed for improving transparency in government multi cloud environments, agencies can accelerate speed to value by leveraging easy to provision applications and a self-service catalogue of prebuilt apps with built in codeless integrations.”
