The Marine Corps Systems Command is seeking industry advice on application rationalization as it looks to shut down several on-premise data centers and migrate those operations to a commercial cloud environment. In a request for information posted Jan. 7, the command asks for details on firms' approaches to application discovery and rationalization, as well as the "cost and timeline associated with refactoring applications."
The sources-sought notice suggests the Marine Corps is open to infrastructure-, platform- and software-as-a-service solutions, and is particularly interested in microservices to replace or complement the existing applications. It also specifically mentions "big data service development in the cloud," and asks about companies' experience with migrating to cloud providers certified by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program. Responses are due Jan. 23.
