Lockheed Martin Successfully Migrates EPA To The Microsoft Cloud





ROCKVILLE, Md., March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Microsoft have successfully migrated the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to Microsoft Office 365, a cloud-based collaboration and communication service. This cloud-based system improves employee access to communications and mobility tools.

"Our partnership with Lockheed Martin in bringing Microsoft Office 365 to the EPA generated a level of excitement amongst our employees that has been unmatched," said Malcolm Jackson, assistant administrator for the EPA's Office of Environmental Information and chief information officer. "Lockheed Martin exceeded my expectations in delivering this service to the EPA."

Under a four-year contract, Lockheed Martin transitioned more than 22,000 EPA email users to Office 365 for Government, a service that stores U.S. government data in a segregated community cloud and includes email, calendars, scheduling and collaboration tools for internal and external use. The company will continue to provide engineering and ongoing integration services.

"Building on Lockheed Martin's 35 years of information technology service to the EPA, this successful, on-schedule migration ensures EPA employees have the best possible collaboration and communication tools," said Stephanie C. Hill, president of the civil product line at Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions (IS&GS). "Our expertise in cloud migration processes and our alliances with technology partners provide a strong foundation for flexible cloud-based solutions for federal customers."

"The EPA's vision of a more cost-effective, modernized collaboration environment has arrived, thanks in large part to the incredible work of our partners at Lockheed Martin," said Greg Myers, vice president of Microsoft Federal. "By moving to the cloud with Office 365 for Government, EPA personnel can be more productive from any location, while maintaining the highest levels of reliability, accessibility, and security."

As the number one provider of IT services to the federal government, Lockheed Martin is a leader in secure cloud delivery, with more than five years of cloud experience in developing innovation centers, implementing flexible cloud computing solutions and working with partners to deliver the most comprehensive offerings. The company's Solutions as a Service (SolaS™) secure cloud delivery offers a flexible, mission-focused approach that combines domain expertise, proven processes and smart technology.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 120,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation's net sales for 2012 were $47.2 billion.
