IT Cloud and Infrastructure Modernization and Solutions
We believe IT solutions must deliver quantifiable business value. The Cloud has become one of the most significant agents of change in the development of Information Technology. Organizations need experienced staff with a proven track record for delivering strategic business value. Most organizations struggle to modernize traditional solutions while incorporating cloud standards whether as private or public utilities. Our approach has been to recognize and adapt to these various environment with hybrid solutions that deliver the quantifiable business value.
Our goal when providing IT solutions is to promote integration, user acceptance, efficiency, and compliance among users. We study the organization’s dynamics and combine pragmatic, standards-based technical solutions in providing services such as:

Business Intelligence and Strategic Enterprise Transformation
We believe data analytics is the engine for measuring business value and bringing about enterprise modernization. Many on our staff were career federal employees ultimately appointed by the President to lead Executive Branch planning and implementation activities. As one important link between the Executive Branch directives and the plans of the federal agencies our staff will use data science and analytics to guide strategic decisions, intelligent solutions, visionary innovation, and transformational business value.

Consolidating Other’s Opinion

Currently, our team is working with the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) Resource Management Division to develop a mission and vision. Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) Resource Management Division to develop a mission and vision.
Enterprise Security and Risk Analysis
We believe IT security will forge stable enterprise business value. Is there any question that the current security posture of all organizations is characterized by instability? If the walls of the city are crumbling, the barbarians will enter and loot. Today the loot is not just information but extends into all of the systems that make for a modern society. We must find our stability across the broader spectrum or our organizations. This requires a fundamental look at the risks that we face.
Risk considers the likelihood and impact adversarial or non-adversarial cyber events have on the mission of an organization. To determine the seriousness of a risk for an organization we follow bring a unique customized approach based upon NIST risk assessment standards. We look at system vulnerabilities in aggregate while also considering the compounding effect of multiple vulnerabilities across business functions. Our risk assessment team examines various cyber threats and evaluates the capabilities of threat actors to exploit the aggregated vulnerabilities in enterprise systems to identify adverse impact(s) for the mission areas.
We follow a well tested and measured three step approach to risk assessment: discover, determine, and decide.
