Joint Offerings/Solutions

Through our alliance, we develop solutions leveraging Microsoft Cloud, Modern Workplace, Mobility and CRM platforms, and end-to-end GDIT services to help organizations adapt and keep pace with change while accelerating productivity results.

  • Migration to Office365:  GDIT has migrated hundreds of thousands of US Public Sector users to Office365 over the last 6 years, starting with the Microsoft BPOS offerings. GDIT has proven methodologies for successful and secure migrations from Lotus Notes, Groupwise, Google Mail, and Exchange to Office365. GDIT provides full lifecycle migration, training, and support services for Office365. 
  • Workload Migration to Azure:  GDIT has dozens of trained and certified Azure SME’s that are expert in the suite of services that enable rapid migration of cloud-ready workloads to the Azure cloud.  Azure Virtual Machines is a popular choice for initially migrating services to Azure because it enables a “lift and shift” migration model. GDIT can configure a VM-like infrastructure currently running your services in your datacenter, and then migrate your software to the new VM. GDIT can make the configuration updates, such as URLs to other services or storage, allowing us to migrate many applications in this way. In addition, GDIT has successfully supported agency ATO process for cloud services.
  • Application Modernization on Azure:  These services, built on the Azure cloud platform, transform business and technical environments with modernization and application development services that leverage innovations in cloud, mobility, cyber, social, and analytics technologies.
  • Implementation of Dynamics 365:  Our certified Microsoft Dynamics consultants will work closely with your team to design, optimize, and deliver the solution which best meets the needs of your users and your organization. Our Microsoft Dynamics consulting and implementation services include: business process analysis, workflow optimization, system planning and design, project management, system configuration, detailed data modeling, and application development.
