US: IBM announced that the US Army is using IBM Hybrid Cloud to power logistics systems in the US federal government. The new hybrid cloud system is designed to connect the IBM Cloud to the Army's on-premise environment to enable broad use of data analytics for sharper insights and result in improved performance, enterprise scale, better security, and greater reliability — all IBM hallmarks.
The Logistics Support Activity (LOGSA) provides on-time integrated logistics support of Army operations worldwide that impacts every soldier, every day. Since migrating to an on premise hybrid cloud model with IBM in 2014, LOGSA processes 40 million data transactions every day. LOGSA will harness data and analytics via cloud computing to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of logistical coordination.
