Aerospace company Lockheed Martin has partnered with Microsoft to help migrate the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to Office 365.

Lockheed Martin moved over 22,000 EPA email users to Office 365 for Government, a version of the online productivity suite that stores US government data in a partitioned community cloud.

The company claimed Office 365 will improve employee access to communications and mobility tools.

Malcolm Jackson, assistant administrator for the EPA’s Office of Environmental Information and chief information officer, said the move had “generated a level of excitement amongst our employees that has been unmatched”.

Lockheed Martin will provide engineering and ongoing integration services for the EPA under the terms of the four-year contract.

Greg Myers, vice president of Microsoft Federal, said: “The EPA’s vision of a more cost-effective, modernised collaboration environment has arrived, thanks in large part to the incredible work of our partners at Lockheed Martin.

“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.”

Stephanie C. Hill, president of the civil product line at Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems & Global Solutions arm, said: “Our expertise in cloud migration processes and our alliances with technology partners provide a strong foundation for flexible cloud-based solutions for federal customers.

“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.”
