Boundless has entered into a strategic relationship with Leidos, a national security, health and engineering solutions company, to collaborate on cybersecurity and geospatial solutions.
“Boundless commends Leidos for recognizing both the power and value that open source software brings to the U.S. government and our fellow citizens,” says Ann Johnson, Boundless CEO. “We’re very pleased to partner with Leidos to identify and support geospatial initiatives together.”
Boundless will provide Leidos with open-source geospatial software development and expertise in support of integration efforts addressing U.S. government security and intelligence initiatives, as well as support for geospatial systems running on the OpenGeo Suite including GeoServer, PostGIS, OpenLayers and QGIS. Leidos will align the open source OpenGeo Suite to its strategic initiatives to update expensive, complicated proprietary systems with cost-effective, extensible and open-source solutions.
The agreement will allow Leidos to leverage Boundless’ open source channels to optimize DigitalEdge, a platform that integrates ETL (extract, transform, and load), real-time processing and big data stores into a high-performance analytic system.
“The strategic relationship with Boundless represents an extension of our commitment to developing open-source-based solutions for our customers,” says Leidos Group President Sam Gordy. “This collaboration solidifies our position as a leading-edge, open-architecture technology and systems integrator, and is consistent with our open source strategy for both contributing to and developing solutions around open source software.”
Boundless develops and supports powerful software for enterprise Spatial IT applications. It provides platforms for managing data and building maps and applications designed for bringing spatial information into modern workflows. The experts at Boundless reduce the cost and time of deploying and managing spatial software with packaging, support, maintenance, professional services, and expert training.
