New cloud infrastructure delivers the scale, security and governance required for modern projects with an isolated and compliant platform for government customers, contractors and federally funded research projects
Chicago – Aug. 4, 2020 – Copado, a leading native DevOps platform for Salesforce, today announced Copado Government Cloud to help government agencies accelerate the time-to-value of Salesforce digital transformation projects. With Copado DevOps, federal, state and local governments can optimize and measure innovation delivery on the Salesforce platform with full visibility and accountability to ever-changing regulatory and security environments. Copado will enable agencies to respond faster, deliver more digital services, scale to unprecedented demands and connect to its citizens.
Due to COVID-19, government agencies are working to address the exponential demand for digital solutions to meet the needs of the public. This demand is overwhelming delivery capacity. Additionally, government projects require a high level of quality, compliance and governance to reduce risk and protect against increased digital threats.
Copado delivers the quality, speed and scale required by federal, state and local governments to address these needs. Currently in process to be FedRAMP Moderate Authorized by the end of 2020, Copado offers the only Salesforce DevOps platform that scales to the needs of large government projects with the visibility, governance and analytics required to manage multi-million dollar budgets. The company continues to offer its platform free to COVID-19 specific projects to help the fight against the global pandemic.
Since March, Copado has signed contracts with seven new government agencies. The company is helping five agencies rapidly build and deliver high-quality COVID-19 communication, reporting and tracking apps to its citizens. These include scaling and optimizing call, web, chat and text response systems. Copado has deep experience working with government customers including the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the states of California, Kansas, Massachusetts, Missouri and Vermont, the Louisiana Department of Health, the District of Columbia, and international government agencies including the Province of Ontario, Canada.
“Governments are scrambling to address the demands from constituents on many fronts since COVID-19 disrupted daily life. They are creating contact tracing apps, digitally delivering needed services and scaling existing services to handle exponentially higher demand — all with a remote workforce,” said Ted Elliott, Chief Executive Officer of Copado. “Copado can offer the scale, security and experience in optimizing Salesforce deployments to even the most sophisticated government projects. Beyond our own industry-leading DevOps technology, we are partnering with the leaders in government technology and services to ensure the highest levels of success in these projects. Copado DevOps gives government agencies the confidence to move at the pace of today’s uncertain world.”
Copado is also partnering with Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions ProviderⓇ, to streamline the procurement process. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Copado’s public sector distributor and make Copado DevOps available to government agencies as an AppExchange vendor for Salesforce’s Government Cloud through Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V contracts and National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint cooperative purchasing contract.
