Vital Edge Solutions follows a defined methodology to take your project from requirements to reality. We spend time up front drilling down to the right level of detail to present a plan that meets expectations on all sides. Our processes are consistent, and our communication is frequent, but appropriate. Our specific areas of expertise are:
SAFe and DevSecOps
Vital Edge Solutions works closely with our clients to provide the insights, training and implementation of a SAFe development framework integrating into a DevSecOps practice. We create an environment where stakeholders, developers, testers, security and operations work together, help each other and focus on a common goal towards rapid deployment, reliability and security.
Your ability to use all the information available within your organization can be limited by legacy systems, proprietary technology, or changes in business requirements or goals. Whether within a new system implementation or as part of a larger context, system integration can eliminate redundancies, streamline processes, and improve productivity.
Vital Edge Solutions has the breadth and depth of knowledge about IT systems to make the right recommendation for your systems integration. We are not bound to any brand of technology, so our recommendations can be based on what will work for the specific needs of your organization.
By developing an Enterprise Architecture to show how all the elements of your organization’s IT work together, you can understand and demonstrate areas of strength along with areas where efficiency and effectiveness could be improved. It represents physical assets as well as information flows and business processes and without this global view, your organization might now be making the most of its technology investments.
Vital Edge Solutions can develop and maintain your Enterprise Architecture as the blueprint to help guide future IT development in a fully orchestrated way. Among other benefits, your organization will be able to improve its data sharing capabilities, respond to changes in technology, and reduce costs through efficiencies.
If meeting your business goals requires a custom-programmed solution, Vital Edge has the experience to design, create, test, and maintain systems that fit the unique nature of your business or organization. Always in consideration of integration requirements, development focuses on related functionality, component interfaces, and system interconnections. Quality is built into the development process throughout, rather than held until the end.
By adopting the philosophy behind agile software development, Vital Edge Solutions shifts the traditional, end-to-end software development life cycle to an iterative process. Improving progress visibility for stakeholders allows for nimble change procedures, high quality code, and better alignment with business goals - all of which impact your return on investment.
Once an IT solution is successfully delivered, its ability to meet the business goals for which it was designed depends upon ongoing attention to operations and maintenance. System monitoring, change management, and user support/training are just a few of the critical tasks in this stage of a system’s life.
Vital Edge Solutions can help your organization achieve a reliable and unified O&M framework to maintain expected service levels. With the same iterative approach used in our software development methodology, we can initiate a cycle of continuous improvement that lasts as long as the system is in use and can include:
The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) provides a comprehensive, consistent, and coherent set of best practices and is widely accepted as the de facto standard for IT service management worldwide. ITIL has become the internationally accepted standard and provides a clear set of processes for the integration of your IT department and internal service organization.
By adopting effective, quality-driven practices, Vital Edge Solutions can target and achieve better results for its IT customers with fewer resources and measurable service levels. Steps toward effective use of ITIL include thorough planning to identify appropriate features, implementing according to plan, documenting aligned procedures, and formalizing ongoing quality/ control processes.
At Veteran Affairs, we have been very successful implementing and supporting websites and dashboards which incorporates multiple data sources and displays them in an easy to use web interface. The site is also 508 complaint and fully accredited.
Our design process has proven to be successful with our government partners and will be very critical to the success and implementation of any website design and implementation. We utilize Microsoft Technologies and ensure each system is secured according to NIST 800-53 guidelines. Some of our existing solution are already rated and categorized as FISMA High.
The Portfolio Dashboard from Vital Edge is designed to provide Program Managers, technology leaders, Project Managers and CIOs with important insights into the IT organization.
