Applied Insight said the deals will improve ATG’s and Stratus’ access to new federal customers and combine its expertise around its customer’s missions with capabilities to better fulfill those missions.

“At AI, we’re adept at aligning the right people and technologies with our customers’ missions,” John Hynes, AI’s CEO, said in a statement. “We know that the challenges of working with confidence in the cloud and effectively marshaling big data for actionable intelligence are widespread across government.”

Hynes added, “We’re particularly encouraged by the potential of what they can do together as part of AI. For example, we’ll be exploring how our cloud governance, machine learning and cyber capabilities can help customers better manage the need for both control and flexibility for their cloud infrastructures at scale.”

ATG and Stratus are both based in Maryland.
