Oakland is pleased to announce that our ongoing contract with USTRANSCOM and the Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (SDDC) to provide technical and functional support for the Transportation Financial Management System (TFMS) has been modified to implement a DevOps capability in an AWS GovCloud environment.

As background, USTRANSCOM and SDDC have directed Programs of Record (PoRs) to modernize and transition applications to a USTRANSCOM Commercial Cloud Environment leveraging cloud managed services and automated pipeline technologies.  Similar to other “on-prem” applications, TFMS will move to the cloud utilizing a “lift and shift” strategy.  The desired end-state at the completion of this task is for the TFMS to be fully functioning in the USTRANSCOM Commercial Cloud Environment.

Having successfully migrated TFMS to AWS GovCloud, Oakland was recently awarded a contract to identify available DevOps tools, recommend business processes to be automated using those tools, and implement those recommendations approved by the Government.  Over the life of the contract, Oakland will integrate tools from differing phases of the DevOps cycle and define an end-to-end automated process.  This will contribute to synchronization and collaboration across the organization and introduce improved effectiveness and efficiency.  The end result will be faster and more accurate deployment and releases. 

Cedric Nash, Oakland’s CEO and President, noted that “Oakland’s efforts are a key part of the USTRANSCOM and SDDC cloud migration strategy and we are excited to be a part of the process”

The plan includes the target environment, migration method, resource plans from both the Government and Contractor, scope, strategy, schedule/timeline, dependencies, risks/issues, estimated costs, and test strategies.
