UiPath , a leading enterprise automation software company, announced its partnership with Peraton, a leading mission capability integrator and transformative enterprise IT provider, to deliver the UiPath Business Automation Platform as a cloud-based managed service to high-security environments within U.S. intelligence, defense, and civilian agencies.
Peraton specializes in helping essential government agencies overcome daunting challenges that require fast, reliable, and secure technology solutions. These valued customers require the highest levels of compliance and security to complete their missions. This partnership enables it to take advantage of the UiPath AI-powered automation platform in sensitive environments as a managed service – either via cloud or on-premises with expert support in automation scripting, implementation, and management. As a result, the customers will be able to rapidly scale in any mission area, take full advantage of higher productivity and increased visibility, enjoy enhanced insights with real-time situational intelligence, advance their digital transformation, and improve business outcomes within their unique customer environments.
Through this partnership, UiPath and Peraton allow customers to create and execute on automation strategies, drive mission agility, and orchestrate transformational impact for highly sensitive secure workloads. The AI-powered UiPath Platform offers unprecedented time-to-value by combining the leading robotic process automation (RPA) solution with a full suite of capabilities to understand, automate, and operate end-to-end processes.
“Automation can be a potent 'arrow in the quiver' for civilian, defense and the intelligence community—as well as for American businesses and citizens—as we move forward into a future of renewal, resilience, and readiness,” said Mike Daniels, Senior Vice President of Public Sector at UiPath. “With automation, implementations happen fast, and improvements are immediate. Our partnership with Peraton will enable us to jointly push automation out to the edge to effect where services are delivered, which leads to better outcomes and improved employee experiences.”
“Our partnership with UiPath will leverage the power of automation, AI, and machine learning to help tackle missions of consequence at greater scope and scale than before,” said Mike King, Chief Growth Officer at Peraton. “As national security continues to evolve, this partnership helps ensure our customers are utilizing market-leading solutions to achieve transformational impact and meet the challenges of tomorrow.”
Automation can be deployed to increase quality, reduce human error, increase compliance, strengthen controls environments, and add new services to an organization’s portfolio. The White House Executive Order (EO) on Transforming Federal Customer Experience and Service Delivery to Rebuild Trust in Government instructs federal agencies to modernize government programs and find ways to reduce costly, time-consuming administrative tasks—which are achievable in automation first organizations. Additionally, since the launch of the Federal Cloud Computing Strategy, government agencies have been migrating to the cloud to achieve scalability and reduce costs.
UiPath and Peraton combined to drastically improve processes at a U.S. defense agency. The customer needed to process hundreds of weekly metrics from data dispersed in disparate sources. With an automation solution from UiPath, the agency built highly scalable bots to fully automate the process, reducing the workload from many hours to 15 minutes. In addition, automation can be deployed to support federal and civilian agencies to manage future global events such as pandemics by processing and understanding data in real time.
UiPath is on a mission to uplevel knowledge work so more people can work more creatively, collaboratively, and strategically. The AI-powered UiPath Business Automation Platform combines the leading robotic process automation (RPA) solution with a full suite of capabilities to understand, automate, and operate end-to-end processes, offering unprecedented time-to-value.

For Memorial Day 2023, GovCIO partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration (NCA) to add to its Veterans Legacy Memorial (VLM) website more than 300,000 service members and Veterans interred in 27 Department of Defense-managed military cemeteries, including Arlington National Cemetery.
VLM, a publicly available interactive online memorialization platform, honors the service and sacrifice of millions interred at these military cemeteries; at VA National and VA funded state, tribal, and territory Veteran cemeteries; and two U.S. Park Service National Cemeteries. The digital platform allows family and friends to upload written tributes, photos, biographies, documents, and other information to Veterans' memorial pages.
Since the program launched in 2019, over 4.8 million profiles have been created with nearly 60,000 memories added by family members, friends, researchers, and other users. The newly added 27 cemeteries include 18 operated by the Army, five operated by the Navy; and four by the Air Force.
"We are honored to be part of this meaningful program that pays tribute to our nation's heroes in such a personal way," said Karen Durham-Aguilera, Executive Director of the Office of Army Cemeteries and Army National Military Cemeteries. "We look forward to this continued partnership so that more people can discover the extraordinary stories of service and sacrifice that make up the fabric of our country."
From its inception, GovCIO has led the building, implementation and maintenance of the VLM site for the NCA, ensuring survivors and family members have access to the platform to memorialize their Veterans.
"This is a big leap forward for VLM," National Cemetery Administration Digital Services Officer James LaPaglia said. "For us, to be connecting to an interment database outside of the VA is a first. And Arlington National Cemetery is something that our customers have been asking for from the beginning when VLM started in 2019."
Additional newly launched VLM features GovCIO helped implement include a simpler and faster search for users to find their Veterans and a new Personal Achievements milestone to celebrate those non-military special occasions in a Veteran's life.
"Having a number of my relatives interred at VA national cemeteries, including my father-in-law at Arlington National Cemetery, I am extremely proud that the VA has entrusted GovCIO with this important mission," said Jim Brabston, GovCIO CEO. "Improving the VLM customer experience was our top priority, and we hope these new features will continue to allow families and friends to honor their Veterans."
