Leidos and Boundless Enter Strategic Relationship

Companies to Collaborate on Open Source Cybersecurity and Geospatial Solutions

(New York, NY and Reston, Va.) – September 30, 2015 Leidos, a national security, health, and engineering solutions company, and Boundless, a leading provider of open source geospatial software and services, today announced they have entered into a strategic relationship to collaborate on cybersecurity and geospatial solutions. Leidos and Boundless will collaborate on joint business development efforts to market and identify opportunities. 

Boundless will provide Leidos with open-source geospatial software development and expertise in support of integration efforts addressing U.S. government security and intelligence initiatives, as well as support for geospatial systems running on the OpenGeo Suite including GeoServer, PostGIS, OpenLayers, and QGIS. Leidos will align the open source OpenGeo Suite to its strategic initiatives to update expensive, complicated proprietary systems with cost-effective, extensible, and open-source solutions.

The agreement will allow Leidos to leverage Boundless’ open-source channels to optimize DigitalEdgeTM, a platform that integrates ETL (extract, transform, and load), real-time processing, and big data stores into a high-performance analytic system.

“The strategic relationship with Boundless represents an extension of our commitment to developing open source based solutions for our customers,” said Leidos Group President, Sam Gordy. “This collaboration solidifies our position as a leading-edge, open-architecture technology and systems integrator, and is consistent with our open source strategy for both contributing to and developing solutions around open source software.” 

Michael Leiter, Leidos Executive Vice President of Business Development and Strategy commented, “The Leidos-Boundless strategic relationship exemplifies our commitment to partnerships with cutting-edge technology companies—especially those who are committed to using open source technology—across national security, health, and engineering.  Partnering to combine our technical talents and customer relationships, along with Leidos’ 40+ years of experiences in these fields, is a win-win for our companies and our customers.”

“Boundless commends Leidos for recognizing both the power and value that open source software brings to the U.S. Government and our fellow citizens,” added Ann Johnson, Boundless Chief Executive Officer. “We’re very pleased to partner with Leidos to identify and support geospatial initiatives together.”
