Representative Programs:

Department of Defense (DoD) Enterprise Email (DEE) Program: General Dynamics IT successfully implemented the DEE program, the largest enterprise-wide e-mail infrastructure in the DoD. The system, which consolidates e-mail infrastructure, centralizes e-mail management and reduces technical and functional costs, supports e-mail for 4.5 million users worldwide. Today, there are over 1,000,000 users who have migrated and more than $75 million in savings making DoD Enterprise Email one of the largest independent email systems in the world.  As an enterprise-wide service, DEE reduces the cost of operations and maintenance by consolidating hardware into DISA’s secure, global Defense Enterprise Computing Centers.

General Services Administration (GSA) IaaS BPA: We are one of 12 companies and the only systems integrator selected to provide cloud computing services through an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) blanket purchase agreement issued by the GSA. This initiative facilitates access for government agencies to cloud computing resources and enables a ready, cost-effective and timely connection to a wide array of cloud computing services.  

U.S. Marine Corps MCEITS Program:  As the prime contractor on the Marine Corps Enterprise IT Services (MCEITS) program, General Dynamics IT designed and delivered a unified enterprise application environment in an innovative private cloud computing architecture to support collaboration, shared services and access to trusted information.  

Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR): Our cloud brokerage solution offers Texas agencies a cost-effective alternative to traditional enterprise IT infrastructure, application development platforms and services. Cloud brokerage provides agencies with shared pools of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) available via an on-demand, self-service provisioning portal that can be accessed from anywhere on virtually any device.
