Based on Congressional and Executive mandates, government agencies know they must modernize their legacy systems and migrate current systems and applications to the cloud. Spending also must be prioritized to focus on the most vulnerable and costly of their legacy systems.
Because each organization is at different stages in terms of legacy systems, workforce capability, and service delivery, there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution.
TWD’s role as a trusted partner, coupled with our breadth of experience and deep expertise leads to innovation in solution development for these organizations. We work closely with the customer to evaluate current assets, establish a roadmap that identifies potential roadblocks, and develop a workflow that allows for immediate delivery of value as well as ongoing improvement. In short, we make technology work for them.
A Culture of Continuous Improvement
We believe at our core in the discipline, rigor and accountability needed to minimize risk and disruption, while continually improving processes and outcomes. TWD has received the highest form of third-party validation for our work and processes through appraisal at Level 3 of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) for Development. Our certification under ISO 9001:2015 for Quality Management Systems, assures our customers that TWD employs management practices and risk-based thinking designed to improve performance at all levels.
Aspects of Effective Digital Transformation
TWD has demonstrated its ability to adapt, problem-solve, and think creatively throughout our 28-year tenure. We have created an Agile Solutions Center (ASC) to develop innovation and as an incubator for new ideas and solution experimentation.
The ASC serves as our principal enabler to perform on large and complex IT modernization initiatives with state-of-the-art architectures and implementations. Our dedicated, cleared rapid deployment teams have full stack capabilities and cloud services expertise to serve all the needs of our customers – from small upgrades to full modernization and cloud transformation capabilities.
An Agile Approach The shift from legacy to the cloud can be significant. TWD approaches these transformations carefully, using Lean-Agile and other modern processes which enable organizations to realize business value quickly – with lower risk.
Future-Enabled Technology evolution is continuous. TWD’s use of an open source technology stack ensures that applications are future-ready.
Optimizing for the Cloud Because an infrastructure can’t just be lifted from the data center and dropped into a cloud, TWD works to reconfigure applications that are running on outdated mainframe and client-server systems to be compatible with cloud environments – and to achieve the significant cost savings that a move the cloud promises.
The Human Component Generational changes in the workforce and user bases make it imperative that applications are modernized in a way that improves the user experience across multiple devices. With the human interface an essential part of the modernization process, TWD incorporates user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) best practices to create a user-centered design that delivers simplicity, convenience, and high-quality.
Collaboration TWD’s business culture inherently drives a collaborative approach to design, engineering, and implementation of infrastructure, systems, and applications. Our high-touch customer experience provides close collaboration with customers, partners, and stakeholders. We engage with all organizational teams to integrate innovations and deliver improvements continuously into the service stream. Customers have free and unlimited access to TWD engineering and solution design services to help define and refine requirements and develop holistic, custom-engineered solutions.
Industry Partnerships TWD is vendor-agnostic and selects the technology that will work best for each solution. We do have corporate technology partnerships with industry-leading vendors. These are based on competency, though, rather than sales volume.
Knowledge Sharing TWD ensures that project successes and lessons learned are shared within our organization, transferring important knowledge among all TWD teams that can benefit from this information.
