Rancher Government Solutions | February 10, 2023
Rancher Government Solutions (RGS) named Booz Allen Hamilton the inaugural recipient of its annual Innovation Partner of the Year Award for its excellent leadership in providing DevSecOps services as well as vital technical expertise to the Air Force's Platform One initiative, which aims to advance and re-imagine the Department of Defense's (DOD) approach to software delivery.
Rancher Government Solutions picked Booz Allen Hamilton for its expertise in advocating the adoption of Kubernetes and other cloud-native, open-source technologies to facilitate digital transformation and enhance mission success in the U.S. government.
The partnership between Booz Allen and RGS on USAF Platform One is an excellent illustration of how these transformative technologies promote innovation and modernization inside the Department of Defense (DOD). RGS, in conjunction with Booz Allen and USAF Platform One leadership, is supporting the innovative work of the Air Force and the Department of Defense with its technical knowledge across a variety of Platform One value streams.
Booz Allen, partnered with RGS as a key supporter of Platform One, is at the forefront of enterprise-wide software industrialization and innovation for DOD, the federal government, and private sector organizations that can leverage Platform One to accelerate delivery via continuous, reusable, flexible, and secure solutions. The U.S. Air Force has teamed with Booz Allen to commercialize Platform One's Big Bang product and Iron Bank container hardening services, accelerating the delivery of contemporary, secure mission capabilities at scale.
Platform One's primary concept is that business software services must be open, vendor-agnostic, scalable, and interoperable, with continuous delivery and extensive security. The Air Force required an innovative solution that would enable it to assume complete control of its infrastructure, adopt open architecture across the organization, and engage with industry partners in wholly unusual ways. Platform One was created to pioneer this concept and revolutionize the DOD's software distribution approach.
