At the Pentagon, JEDI is out and JWCC is in — the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability, that is. While the Department of Defense’s new enterprise cloud acquisition is brand new and many details, like its price ceiling, are still a mystery, the department hopes this contract will finally, after years of delay with the beleaguered Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure contract, kick off its journey to an end-to-end cloud infrastructure capability. The department will look to issue multiple direct awards with cloud service providers and is also intending to seek proposals from JEDI-winner Microsoft and its main competitor Amazon. Several years down the road, DOD will also pursue a “larger, full-and-open” multi-cloud procurement.
