SAIC gets go-ahead for Cloud One

SAIC can officially kick off work leading the Air Force's Cloud One program now that a protest of the $727 million award has been taken care of.

Under the Cloud One contract, SAIC will support the move to the commercial cloud for the Air Force and other services. The company said in an announcement last week that it will move about 800 Air Force and Army applications into the cloud. More on the fight for the Cloud One contract.
