IBM has renewed a contract with the U.S. Army to continue providing a full portfolio of IT management services to the U.S. Army Materiel Command Logistics Data Analysis Center (LDAC). Under this LITeS III contract, IBM will continue to serve one of the largest logistics systems in the U.S. federal government and expand upon the software development and cognitive computing capabilities provided in previous LITeS I & LITeS II contracts, also awarded to IBM.

During the next five years, IBM will work to enhance the U.S. Army IT readiness and resilience by providing LDAC with a series of IT management services that include cloud migration support; analytics; software development and sustainment; database management and analysis; application integration and management; customer support; business case analysis; enterprise design, integration, and consolidation; cybersecurity; product end-user guides and project management.

“This third contract awarded to IBM in the LITeS series confirms IBM’s positioning to serve the U.S. Army’s critical IT programs,” said Steve LaFleche, IBM’s General Manager at U.S. Public and Federal Market. “We are proud to continue our collaboration with LDAC and to provide them with the high quality, efficiency and effective support they require to further their digital modernization journey.”

IBM’s work with LDAC (formerly Logistics Support Activity, LOGSA) started in 2012 with the LITeS I contract that focused on modernizing LDAC’s legacy data center into an on-premise hybrid cloud managed services delivery model; implementing strong cybersecurity controls and transitioning the organization to an Agile delivery organization. The second contract, LITeS II in 2017, transitioned LDAC to a platform as a service delivery model, allowing inter-agency data sharing and implementing initial analytics capabilities.
