The FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board has awarded FedRAMP certification to business management system Apptio.
Apptio received certification from the Joint Authorization Board (which included the DoD, DHS and GSA) for its Technology Business Management software, and is one of only 10 other SaaS vendors who have received this class of certification.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
Apptio was one of only seven vendors accepted for the new FedRAMP Connect program. This accelerated program was designed to help the JAB select cloud service providers based on the highest demand and preferred criteria from CIOs across the federal government. Other vendors selected include Accenture Federal Services, Box, Google, Axon, XTEC and SAP National Security Services (NS2).
“The federal spend on IT programs is only increasing year over year; it’s expected to reach more than $95 billion this year,” said Apptio Vice President of Public Sector Bob Carter said. “Apptio can help agencies gain full visibility into this massive spend, adhere to FITARA and other IT Modernization mandates, and also help agencies find millions in cost recovery that can be reinvested into innovation initiatives.”
Apptio’s FedRAMP environment provides a continental United States-based and dedicated infrastructure (facilities, servers, databases, networking devices) for federal government agencies subscribing to their Cost Transparency SaaS application.
Apptio will also be releasing enhanced product capabilities around color of money considerations, federal OMB reporting and budget tracking. These capabilities are currently part of an early adopter program that is expected to launch to all agencies later this year.
