Score one for Amazon over IBM in CIA cloud case

A Federal judge ruled in favor of Amazon(s amzn) Web Services in its bid to hold onto the CIA cloud contract it won over IBM. The award made early this year was contested by IBM(s ibm), which bid a lower amount, and the Government Accountability Office deemed that the contract should be re-bid. That was done although the ruling of U.S. Court of Federal Claims Judge Thomas Wheeler would seem to make that a moot point. IBM said it will appeal.
