Microsoft recently announced the availability of cloud-based Microsoft Dynamics business services designed to meet the security and functionality requirements of U.S. federal government agencies.
The services were designed to enable government organizations to collaborate, manage data and improve processes, while leveraging the potential flexibility and cost savings of a cloud-based delivery model hosted by Microsoft partner Layered Technologies Inc.
Intended to meet the National Institute of Standards and Technology security and control standards required of federal agencies for Federal Information Security Management Act compliance, the Layered Tech environment includes a private cloud with dedicated hardware and physical storage for the tightest security requirements, Microsoft said.
“This environment allows [agencies] to achieve the business benefits of cloud computing while meeting even the most stringent security requirements,” Amir Capriles, general manager, U.S. Public Sector for Microsoft Dynamics, said in a statement.
A set of Microsoft Dynamics services will be available on the new infrastructure, designed to allow government agencies to provide functions such as workforce management, task management, field inspection, intelligence gathering, call center interactions, financial management, grants management and emergency response.
