U.S. Army Using IBM Cloud For Logistics Systems

US_Army

The U.S. Army is using IBM Hybrid Cloud to power one of the largest logistics systems in the U.S. federal government. The system is designed to connect the IBM Cloud to the Army’s on-premise environment to enable broad use of data analytics, says the tech behemoth.

The Logistics Support Activity — known as LOGSA — provides on-time integrated logistics support of Army operations worldwide. Since migrating to an on premise hybrid cloud model with IBM in 2014, LOGSA processes 40 million unique data transactions every day — more than the New York Stock Exchange.

LOGSA is home of the Logistics Information Warehouse (LIW), the Army’s official storehouse for collecting, storing, organizing and delivering logistics data. LIW provides services to more than 65,000 users and 150 direct trading partners around the world. LOGSA provides logistics intelligence, life cycle support, technical advice, and assistance to the current and future force; integrates logistics information (force structure, readiness, and other logistics data) for worldwide equipment readiness and distribution analysis; and offers asset visibility for timely and proactive decision making.

The IBM Cloud Managed Services for Government-Department of Defense (CMS for Defense) is located at the Allegany Ballistics Laboratory (ABL) in West Virginia, which is owned by the Department of the Navy.
