Pentagon cancels $10bn 'Jedi' contract
The Pentagon is scrapping a multibillion dollar cloud computing contract, which sparked a row between Microsoft and Amazon. After Microsoft won the massive Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure contract, it drew complaints and a legal challenge from tech rival Amazon, which claimed that the choice was politically motivated. After the work was awarded to Microsoft in 2019, Amazon - which was seen as the favourite for the project - filed a legal challenge to object. Mr Trump referred to the Washington Post as 'Amazon Washington Post' and penned tweets about him calling him 'Jeff Bezo'.When Amazon pitched for a lucrative government cloud computing contract, many analysts believed they were the ones to beat. Amazon has since been arguing that Mr Trump exercised undue influence in the procurement process.
