FAIRFAX, Va., Aug. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Sevatec, a leading national security firm specializing in Agile, software delivery, data analytics, cybersecurity, and cloud engineering solutions, announced it has partnered with Databricks, the leader in Unified Analytics and founded by the original creators of Apache Spark™, to become its first-ever Gold Partner in the federal space.
The achievement recognizes Sevatec's delivery of groundbreaking technical innovations, capabilities, and skills for mission-critical work. The partnership will continue to leverage Sevatec's expertise and experience, coupled with Databricks' Unified Analytics Platform, to deliver innovative data science and machine learning solutions to the federal government that create efficiencies, save time, and ultimately save money for the American taxpayer.
"Sevatec is proud to be named Databricks' first ever Gold Partner in the federal space," said Lisa Spory, vice president of national security and immigration programs. "We are deeply committed to helping federal customers break ground with leading-edge innovations that accelerate efficiency, provide radically improved operations, and enhance mission capabilities, accuracy, and quality. These frontline technological applications draw on Sevatec's 's unique understanding and expert key personnel, coupled with Databricks cutting-edge technology, and have considerable room for expansion throughout the federal government. We're excited to join with Databricks to assist customers in realizing impressive solutions in the new realm of the possible."
Together with Databricks, Sevatec was the first to pioneer and implement innovative, auto-scalable, distributed processing technology for a federal agency. A just-released video interview with Spory and Sevatec's Rakesh Pol, director of data analytics, explains the relatively new concept of how auto-scalable data capacity can be expanded for individuals to use during high demand and then collapsed again during low demand. The Databricks Unified Analytics Platform increases speeds by up to 50x, thereby reducing time spent on tasks that could take days, down to mere minutes.
"We're thrilled to be working with Sevatec and look forward to seeing the value this partnership delivers to our joint federal customers," said Michael Hoff, senior vice president of business development at Databricks. "Our partnership with Sevatec will extend the power of our Unified Analytics Platform, lowering the barrier for federal government agencies to innovate with AI and accelerate their innovation."
