Why Microsoft (Not Amazon) Could Win The Pentagon Contract

• The majority of forecasts favor Amazon for the Pentagon contract while overlooking the partnerships that MS has made with the DoD since Nadella became CEO in 2014.
• By the first quarter of 2019, Azure Government Secret will support “Secret U.S. classified data or Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) level 6” which is on par with Amazon.
• The question that remains is if the Pentagon will want to use Amazon for cloud infrastructure while using Microsoft for operating systems and software.
In 2019, the biggest cloud customer in the world will be the United States Department of Defense. The DoD is currently reviewing bids to award a single cloud provider a multi-year contract. Obviously, this isn’t your typical enterprise IT department, transferring from on-premise servers, or a startup who needs the flexibility of cloud infrastructure to scale. The program is called the Joint Enterprise Defense Initiative, or JEDI, and its purpose is to move the DoD’s massive computing systems into the cloud. This one contract is worth $10 billion, or 25% of the current market, which currently stands at $40 billion in annual revenue.
Many prognosticators and reporters unanimously believe the contract will go to Amazon Web Services. This belief is so strong that vendors, such as Oracle and IBM, made a rebuttal to Congress, believing the terms of the proposal favored Amazon. However, the majority of these forecasts overlook Microsoft’s strength in security and IT, and the alliances Microsoft has been forming with the DoD since Satya Nadella became CEO in 2014. Admittedly, guessing a company other than Amazon will win the Pentagon contract is a pure gamble, however, there are strong indicators for Microsoft that should not be overlooked.
Background on JEDI Contract
The Pentagon contract will move 3.4 million users and 4 million devices off private servers and into the cloud. The security risks of using servers outside the Pentagon’s domain are offset by physically separated government regions and hybrid solutions that extend on-premise servers by adding the cloud where necessary. The benefits of artificial intelligence, deep learning, and other technologies like virtual reality are essential for modern warfare as real-time data will inform missions when soldiers are in the field and also help to prepare them for combat.
Ed. note: Something to think about and that is all this technology came out of the United States over the past 50 years. Ben Gurion’s plan all along was to achieve technological superiority at any price. This technological superiority has always been the ultimate driving force behind Zionism using religion as its catalyst.
“Cyber is the real domain of power“. –Benjamin Netanyahu
“It’s giving us powers and prowess we never had before.” — Benjamin Netanyahu
“More than six decades later, the Israelis have turned their country into an oasis of technology and innovation. With the most startups per capita worldwide, and the third highest number of patents per head, Israel has become one of the leading players in the world of high-tech innovation, attracting international giants to its shores.”
Ed note: Here are a few examples of Zionism using religion as its catalyst in its drive to technological power. What’s interesting is that the number one supporter of Minsky’s book The Emotion Machine is Jeffrey Epstein. We’ll let readers fully absorb that concept after hopefully comprehending the connections.
“Marvin Lee Minsky (August 9, 1927 – January 24, 2016) was an American cognitive scientist concerned largely with research of artificial intelligence (AI), co-founder of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s AI laboratory, and author of several texts concerning AI and philosophy. Marvin Lee Minsky was born in New York City, to an eye surgeon father, Henry, and to a mother, Fannie, who was an activist of Zionist affairs. His family was Jewish.”
Ed note: Ray Kurzweil over at Google developed his “singularity” idea from John von Neumann. Note very carefully Kurzweil and von Neumann are both Jewish. The hyper-rationalism of Jews is astonishing. It’s going to cause an enormous schism in our species: combining machine in man and depriving our species of its spirituality. Von Neumann’s accomplishments are astonishing. Game theory is critical in the development of A.I. technology because with gaming every known extreme in human emotion is involved – as is pedophilia.
“John von Neumann (December 28, 1903 – February 8, 1957) was a Hungarian-American mathematician, physicist, computer scientist, and polymath. He made major contributions to a number of fields, including mathematics (foundations of mathematics, functional analysis, ergodic theory, representation theory, operator algebras, geometry, topology, and numerical analysis), physics (quantum mechanics, hydrodynamics, and quantum statistical mechanics), economics (game theory), computing (Von Neumann architecture, linear programming, self-replicating machines, stochastic computing), and statistics. Von Neumann was born Neumann János Lajos to a wealthy, acculturated and non-observant Jewish family (in Hungarian the family name comes first.”
Ed note: There is an aspect of A.I. that requires children Spielberg wants us to know about.
Ed note: Developing children bringing them into your home because you want to “share love.” Yes, today is going to be an “awesome, awesome day” alright.
