Capgemini Awarded Contract with U.S. Army Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems

Capgemini Government Solutions LLC, a member of the Capgemini Group, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced it has been awarded a five-year, $88 million contract by the U.S. Army to provide Independent Verification & Validation (IV&V) support services for the Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS), the organization responsible for providing infrastructure and information management systems to the Army.

PEO EIS is establishing an IV&V function at the Army Enterprise level to improve enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementations. This will help to reduce the total costs associated with the Army’s ERP programs and to provide an enterprise view across the entire Army, thus addressing the Army’s goal of Total Asset Visibility (TAV).

Capgemini will support the Army’s five ERP programs, including: Global Combat Support System-Army (GCSS-A), Logistics Modernization Program (LMP), General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS), Army-Defense Integrated Manpower and Human Resources System (DIMHRS-A), and the Army Enterprise Systems Integration Program (AESIP, formerly PLM+). Capgemini’s scope of work will include providing – collectively at the enterprise level and individually at the project level – broad-based IV&V services encompassing Army ERPs within the purview of PEO EIS, including future ERP program requirements.

“Capgemini’s past experience working with the U.S. Army and the Department of Defense, coupled with our strong knowledge of the Army’s requirements and challenges, provides the necessary insight to develop a collaborative partnership with PEO EIS and to meet and ultimately exceed their needs,” said Joe Moye, head of Capgemini Public Sector in North America. “Capgemini’s strategic approach to enterprise resource planning will allow the Army to rapidly deliver on its mission of ERP implementations improvement at a reduced cost.”

In addition to providing ERP IV&V services, the Capgemini team will develop, operate and maintain an automated Central Risk Repository for the PEO EIS that is designed to track and monitor information related to the validation services performed. Capgemini will collaborate with a number of subcontractors to complete the project, including American Systems, Business Management International Inc., CSCL, Exalt, Hampton University, Lighthouse Technologies Inc., New Vectors, PRTM and Pragmatics.

1 Independent Verification & Validation services consist of entrusting verification and validation tasks to an entity independent from the development team. According to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, verification and validation processes for projects such as the Army ERPs can be used to determine whether (1) the products of a given activity conform to the requirements of that activity and (2) the software satisfies its intended use and user needs. This determination may include analyzing, evaluating, reviewing, inspecting, assessing, and testing software products and processes. The verification and validation processes should assess the software in the context of the system, including the operational environment, hardware, interfacing software, operators, and users.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
