As we continue to transition toward Digital Government, a critical milestone is the seamless, enterprise-wide integration of systems and data that ties together agencies and programs for smooth service delivery. UCS helps organizations implement a wide variety of custom development and integration solutions which help to improve overall communications, achieve economies of scale, and reduce costs.
We promote efficient information sharing and technology selection with our customers, which enables successful integration with legacy architectures and systems. This allows our clients to get the most from their prior investments while allowing for future scalability. Our competencies include integrating existing systems with new technologies to enhance operations and productivity and reduce costs; increasing enterprise architecture performance; and facilitating an inter-connected enterprise through implementation of technology standards such as web services and service oriented architecture (SOA).
UCS supports the entire requirements development and system design process to include software changes and interface development. Our technical experts kick-off the requirements development phase by clearly defining basic requirements with stakeholders. We then apply the requirements to many different scenarios to explore all possible "what ifs"; this helps to minimize risk and prevent costly rework that might otherwise occur later in the development process. UCS analyzes the impact of new requirements on existing functionality and interfaces, including user-friendliness and potential return on investment.
We support our clients throughout the testing and evaluation process, including creating and maintaining test plans and matrices. Our testing team coordinates with each project's developers and other technical teams during every testing phase.
