SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and Pivotal Software, Inc., today announced that Raytheon has joined the Pivotal Ready Partner Program to assist the Department of Defense to develop software capabilities to more rapidly bring new technology to the military. The agreement establishes an important relationship that will help the DoD migrate legacy applications to the cloud and accelerate software development and delivery timelines.
"This partnership marks the end of 'business as usual' for defense contractors," said Todd Probert, vice president of mission support and modernization at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. "The software enabled battlefield of the future demands new tools for the modern warfighter. Raytheon's deep mission knowledge and expertise in systems and software combined with Pivotal's innovative processes, tools and speed will change the way our military harnesses the power of technology."
Pivotal Cloud Foundry brings a software-led digital transformation to its customers. Through its cloud-native platform, Pivotal has helped hundreds of commercial customers, and recently the DoD, modernize their legacy systems, significantly improving delivery time and generating millions in cost savings.
"Today we are seeing government organizations embrace software as a strategic asset to rapidly respond to change, and Pivotal is helping enable that shift," said Nick Cayou, vice president, global alliances at Pivotal. "Since moving at startup speed is on the minds of every government organization, the collaboration between Pivotal and Raytheon will help customers drastically improve cycle time and go from idea to production software in days and weeks, not months and years."
