RevaComm and Galvanize Provide U.S. Air Force with Scalable Learning Solutions for At-Home Instruction During Pandemic
HONOLULU–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RevaComm, an enterprise digital transformation company that has 30 years of experience transforming organizational challenges into powerful digital capabilities, and Galvanize, a leader in developing talent and capabilities for individuals and corporations in the technical fields of software engineering and data science, announced today they are working with the U.S. Air Force to provide better management and tracking of synchronous and asynchronous learning for Airmen and contractors, whether they are in-person or remote.
For the first time, with the development and guidance from prime contract holder RevaComm, Galvanize has modified its commercial proprietary LEARN training and technology system to deploy on Platform One, the Air Force, and the Department of Defense’s hardened internal technology platform. Over 11,000 members of the Air Force workforce plan to use or have already begun utilizing this system, with more added each day.
“COVID has forced us all to think differently,” said Harsh Patel, Galvanize CEO. “We are known for creating world-class learning outcomes, and our market-leading instructors leveraging our LEARN software helps make this possible. With the help of RevaComm, this solution enables us to onboard, train and upskill active duty and civilian DoD members remotely, via synchronous or asynchronous learning, and at-scale. We are happy to bring this capability to the Air Force in an effort to help Airmen and contractors learn in a more engaging setting.”
Some of the key adaptations of the LEARN software that allow it to conform to the standards of Platform One, and integrate with current Department of Defense tools, include containerization of the LEARN system, integration with current Air Force tools like GitLab, passing all security and testing protocols, and deploying to CloudOne, the Air Force internal cloud system. When the project is fully realized, the LEARN software on Platform One will allow for high-impact onboarding and training for Airmen and contractors.
“The goal was to bring 11,000 Airmen and developers into this space by the end of the year, but when COVID hit, we had to change the way we solved this, and fast,” said Brett Kimura, President, RevaComm. “We promptly pivoted to a ‘virtual first’ approach and leveraged commercial software more than previously anticipated to help with onboarding. Once we discovered we could utilize the current Air Force source code repositories and deployments to get LEARN deployed to CloudOne, we easily provided Platform One and other DoD or Air Force programs with onboarding-specific programs.”
