The Customer: FAA ADE500/PURE

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Office of Information Technology (AIT) is responsible for the IT management, security, privacy, and data security across the FAA. AIT’s IT portfolio consists of a large portfolio of on-premise applications. FAA AIT is committed to designing new and innovative ways to leverage the FAA cloud to dynamically improve data analysis, enable data-driven decision-making, and streamline how information is provided to aviation stakeholders.

The Challenge

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Office of Information Technology (AIT) was challenged with an aging, on-premises infrastructure that prevented it from introducing new products and services quickly. The costs of keeping its legacy IT infrastructure up and running continued to rise, delaying the agency from reallocating investments on new strategic initiatives to support aviation mandates.

The Solution

Karsun Cloud Runways toolkits contain proven playbooks and pipelines to assess, migrate and manage government cloud migration projects rapidly. There is a Cloud Runway for every step of the modernization journey including refactoring, rehosting, reshaping and replatforming.
