Booz Allen Hamilton has been awarded a 5-year, $674 million contract by the General Services Administration to maintain and support the exponential growth of the Defense Department Advana data analytics platform to improve decision-making across the organization.
Led by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller), Advana integrates hundreds of business systems across DOD — from financial and medical data to personnel and logistics — to make data widely accessible, understandable and usable.
The platform is currently used by over 20,000 users spanning 42 DOD organizations to meet critical mission and business challenges.
Booz Allen will leverage cutting-edge techniques and technologies in data engineering, artificial intelligence and machine learning operations, data visualization and cloud computing to support the platform’s exponential growth.
“In response to increasingly advanced threats from global adversaries, the Department of Defense has placed a clear priority on enabling ready access to data and analytics across its enterprise so its teams can make faster, smarter decisions that benefit their business, operations, and mission,” said Leslie DiFonzo, an executive vice president at Booz Allen.
“We are proud to take part in helping the Department of Defense continue the meteoric growth of the Advana platform by providing full lifecycle IT support, data engineering, and analytics capabilities,” she added.
