Be Informed and CACI Announce Launch of New Civilian Government Software as a Service Platform
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Be Informed, the global market leader in semantic business solutions, announced today at SemTechBiz Conference the development of a new service offering through a strategic relationship with CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI). The service will offer federal agencies a new, agile and cost-effective way to provide citizen services in today's constricted budget environment.
The service platform is a flexible offering, available either as Software as a Service (SaaS) from CACI's cloud or installed at the client site. The offering provides a customizable application model capable of addressing a broad spectrum of mission-critical services, including interacting with citizens, collecting data from multiple agency stakeholders, and complying with regulations and legislation.
The value of this new offering for agencies and citizens starts with the cost-savings of cloud architecture over traditional infrastructure, and continues through time and cost-savings derived from modeling applications. Modeling applications offer a reduction in time to deployment, costs and reliance on expensive development resources when compared to the custom code development in use today. The service is also easily updated, so changes can enter the release management cycle within hours instead of months - saving not just time and money, but also increasing responsiveness to U.S. citizens and to federal mandates.
The service utilizes Be Informed's semantic model-driven platform, which is rapidly becoming a tool of choice across Europe and the Caribbean, and offers government clients the tools and templates created for other global government clients as a springboard to accelerate the modeling of their mission applications.
"Public sector organizations are burdened by complex processes that are resource-intensive to build and costly to change," said Dan Latham, CEO of Be Informed USA. "The creation of this new offering in partnership with CACI changes this, allowing government agencies to deploy solutions quickly and economically. Moreover, it enables customers the power to react immediately to new requirements, transform core processes incrementally with lower risk and evolve new capabilities as changes accelerate."
"We are pleased to work in partnership with Be Informed on this innovative SaaS offering," said John Mengucci, Chief Operating Officer at CACI. "Be Informed's semantic modeling approach deployed in CACI's cloud offers innovative technology and cost savings to our federal customers, which is particularly important in today's budget environment."
CACI provides information solutions and services in support of national security missions and government transformation for Intelligence, Defense, and Federal Civilian clients. A member of the Fortune 1000 Largest Companies and the Russell 2000 Index, CACI provides dynamic careers for approximately 15,300 employees working in more than 120 offices worldwide.
