US Special Operations Command has partnered with Spathe Systems and Red Hat to develop key capabilities that are transforming the way USSOCOM delivers software to the SOF operator. As a result, software acquisition, software development, IT operations, and cybersecurity processes are evolving. Adoption of Agile and DevSecOps methods and processes enable these teams to work together with the singular goal of delivering rapid capabilities to the SOF operator. During this event, Spathe Systems and Red Hat will deliver a glimpse into this transformation and an overview of the technology behind the SOF Hybrid Cloud. To realize the goal of delivering rapid capability to the SOF operator - at scale - the SOF Hybrid Cloud team needs your collaboration!

About Spathe Systems:

As the Solutions Integrator responsible for the SOF Hybrid Cloud, Spathe Systems delivered a proven framework to provide tailored application modernization services specific to the SOF Information Environment (SIE). Spathe provided proven Commercial Information Technology Industry expertise in Program Management, Project Management, and Application Development.  These Commercial IT Industry skill sets are a key departure from the Defense Industry specific approach that is typical of these types of projects. This has proven to be the difference in driving this program forward.

Spathe leveraged corporate Cloud, Application Development, and Project Management SMEs, in conjunction with Red Hat OEM partners, to deliver the SOCOM Private Cloud Phase 1 in less than half the expected time. Spathe currently leads Phase 2 of the SOCOM Private Cloud as it transitions to the SOF Hybrid Cloud for utilization across global SOF.

About Red Hat:

Red Hat is an enterprise software company with an open source development model. Red Hat taps into the collective talent and innovation of open source communities to produce better software. Our experience developing great software in the open source community has allowed us to provide organizations with a proven approach to digital transformation and modern application delivery, backed by Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat Consulting, and Red Hat Open Innovation Labs.

Red Hat OpenShift is a container application platform that brings Linux containers and Kubernetes to the SOF enterprise. OpenShift lets you easily and quickly build, develop, and deploy applications in nearly any infrastructure, public or private. OpenShift allows SOCOM to build applications centrally and deploy them anywhere; from the data center to the tactical edge. Red Hat's approach to Hybrid Cloud and DevSecOps have positioned SOCOM to deliver secure, modern applications to SOF that will improve mission effectiveness.
