Effective systems engineering requires
a holistic approach.
Systems engineering today embraces a wide spectrum of knowledge bases where, strategy, systems, operations and technology intersect. For example, Wireless networking requires an understanding of network processing, physical layers, communications, optimization; operational processes network economics and other areas. Similarly, hybrid systems, sensors and other electronic devices utilized in weapons systems, "smart" buildings and highways, and environmental monitoring require interdisciplinary and industry-specific knowledge.
We understand complex systems design, deployment
With a holistic approach, we can tackle the most complex systems engineering project. In proceeding with design synthesis and system validation, we consider the complete problem and system lifecycle. Then we can integrate all required engineering disciplines and specialty groups into a team effort. This structured development process proceeds from concept definition to design, development, production, operation and implementation.
We know the issues and get the right answers.
Issues such as logistics, the coordination of different teams, and automation become more difficult when dealing with large, complex projects. We consider both the business and the technical needs of all customers with the goal of providing a high quality, sustainable product that meets the user needs. We use a full spectrum of tools such as modeling, simulation and requirements analysis to get the right answers and engineer systems that is robust, effective and long lived.
The architecture of systems deployed in the Enterprise will change over the next five years and the topology of the Application delivery model is also changing. The use of cloud and a range of hosting providers will continue to increase over the next few years as many organizations shift their IT spending from capital expenditure to operating expenditure. The boundaries between the traditional types of infrastructure outsourcing — managed hosting, data center outsourcing (DCO), and DCO-related services such as remote infrastructure management — are becoming blurred.

Part 124, Subpart A, 8(a) Business Development, contains acquisition-related dollar thresholds subject to inflationary adjustments. . .The FAR Council shall publish a notice of the adjusted dollar thresholds in the Federal Register. The adjusted dollar thresholds shall take effect on the date of publication. (2) A procurement offered and accepted for the 8(a) BD program must be competed among eligible Participants if…
(iii) The requirement has not been accepted by SBA for award as a sole source 8(a) procurement on behalf of a tribally-owned or ANC-owned concern….
(b) Exemption from competitive thresholds for Participants owned by Indian Tribes, ANCs and NHOs.
(1) A Participant concern owned and controlled by an Indian Tribe or an ANC may be awarded a sole source 8(a) contract where the anticipated value of the procurement exceeds the applicable competitive threshold if SBA has not accepted the requirement into the 8(a) BD program as a competitive procurement.
(2) A Participant concern owned and controlled by an NHO may be awarded a sole source Department of Defense (DoD) 8(a) contract where the anticipated value of the procurement exceeds the applicable competitive threshold if SBA has not accepted the requirement into the 8(a) BD program as a competitive procurement.
(3) There is no requirement that a procurement must be competed whenever possible before it can be accepted on a sole source basis for a Tribally-owned or ANC-owned concern, or a concern owned by an NHO for to owned concern on a sole source basis…”
