Enlighten IT Consulting Named New Managed Service Partner with AWS
LINTHICUM HEIGHTS, Maryland, October 11, 2018 – MacAulay-Brown, Inc. (MacB), an Alion company, announced today that its subsidiary, Enlighten IT Consulting, LLC, (EITC), has been approved by Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a Managed Service Provider (MSP). AWS MSP was designed for consulting partners skilled at cloud infrastructure and application migration to deliver seamless and low-risk managed services to AWS customers. Enlighten passed a comprehensive third-party audit of MSP capabilities with help from valued customers utilizing Enlighten’s Big Data Platform (BDP) and analytics in AWS GovCloud. As a proven MSP partner, Enlighten delivers superior value and services for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC).
Over the last few years, Enlighten has transformed its collaboration with key mission partners to rapidly develop, deploy, innovate, and operate an accredited BDP via the Rapid Analytic Deployment and Management Framework (RADMF). The proprietary framework consists of complex cybersecurity mechanisms to deploy BDP components and a suite of powerful capabilities in AWS GovCloud, including Enlighten’s new RAPID analytical workbook for data scientists. Instead of procuring various isolated tools, customers can utilize a single solution all in one place.
“Our government customers are seeking solutions allowing them to perform their missions better, faster and more securely,” said David Levy, Vice President of Federal Government for AWS. “Enlighten’s RADMF managed service on AWS GovCloud does just that by providing critical big data and cyber capabilities for the defense community. It’s accelerated the pace in which Enlighten’s customers can immediately realize mission impact for Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO) and Data Fusion challenges.”
“As an approved MSP partner, we have a tremendous opportunity to offer our customers a bundled suite of capabilities that are fully operational,” said Duane Shugars, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Enlighten. “In addition to rapid deployment and management of BDP, our flagship product now includes Artificial Intelligence (AI), an automated pipeline for Machine Learning (ML), and secure Data Science Development and Operations.”
