The technology required to support complex programs

Build, Implement, and Modernize — We have built and implemented technologies designed to work across complex systems effectively and efficiently. For decades, we have consulted with states on how to modernize their systems, and have over 30-years' experience working with federal agencies to sustain legacy application systems — some still programmed in COBOL — that are dependent on obsolete software technologies. We supported modernization and data cleansing in some of the most extreme and urgent circumstances at the IRS.
