VMWare (NYSE: VMW) announced on Thursday that it has been selected by US Army Futures Command to enable a software factory for soldiers.
“Together, Army Futures Command and VMware will cultivate the first Soldier-led “Silicon Valley software company” inside the Army,” stated VMWare.
The initiative will work on helping soldiers to take up cloud-native development practices and help produce software to address current and future mission priorities.
Soldiers will be paired with a VMware Tanzu Labs expert in their fields to learn to build, develop, field and operate the software.
The program will take in 30 hand-selected participants every six months for the next five years.
“Successful organizations build apps to deliver specific outcomes,” said Ajay Patel, VMware’s general manager, modern applications business unit.
“The Army has that focus, and we’re honored to work with them to enable soldiers to write software that serves mission priorities. It will bring the best of VMware Tanzu products and principles to the Army and help them build capabilities that will have a lasting impact.”
