CAMEO: Optimized Secure Cloud for Application Hosting
In May 2014, the General Services Administration (GSA), with the assistance of the Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM), contracted the Business Services Platform (BSP) team of Leidos to work on a large cloud project. The GSA project — CIO Application Maintenance, Enhancement, and Operations (CAMEO) — entailed plans to modernize and onboard GSA applications across multiple data centers and other, less secure cloud platforms onto this cloud, and move these processes into the BSP. The BSP team also had to provide backend maintenance and security. The primary reason for onboarding GSA apps onto the cloud was to take advantage of cost savings and to modernize aging systems.
