Improving Mission Performance
Our innovative and secure solutions enhance the productivity, operational efficiency, and performance of national security and defense agencies. Whether it’s digital services, data analytics, cloud and infrastructure modernization, or collaboration, we provide the tools, talent, and tenacity needed to help our defense clients meet their vital mission of protecting the security of our country.
Our services help recruit and support our troops, modernize and protect government infrastructure, and ensure national readiness. By combining an understanding of the mission with the practical application of new and emerging technologies, Buchanan & Edwards helps ensure that national security and defense agencies stand ready to defend the nation and its citizens.
We apply innovation to help our DoD clients meet growing mission demands in the face of tightening budgets.
Helping Manage the Nation’s Defense Information Network Services
The Consolidated Database Architecture (CDBA) consists of three systems that manage DoD network connections. These web-enabled systems support the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Network Services (NS) Enterprise Connection Division (NSC) mission to collect, track, monitor, and report DoD and non-DoD data related to information assurance compliance. DISA selected BE to provide program-level leadership and technical expertise for operations and maintenance (O&M) of this critical database architecture and related systems and environments, including integration of new code and technologies into production and Continuity of Operations (COOP) environments. We also provided design, implementation, O&M, technical support, configuration management, and data integration of three custom web applications.
Working collaboratively with the government, we generated Computer-Based Training (CBT) modules for end users. We converted user guides into integrated, context-sensitive online help within an application, reducing the turn-around time required to update system documentation and improving the end user experience. We used continuous integration to support rapid unit testing to quickly check software builds and changes, reducing time finding and fixing errors and provided functionality to the client on a regular, rapid pace. We also introduced testing tools that enabled automated tests to be created, managed, executed, and recorded. BE recommended and implemented a change request process for the end user community via the DISA SharePoint site that eased the strain on client and development team resources.
