Architecture Data Migration
It can be a daunting and expensive proposition when an organization decides to migrate their enterprise architecture practice from legacy applications to industry leading tools. Preserving investments in enterprise architecture often involves more than just a straight conversion of data from one architecture tool to another. It likely also involves:
- conducting meta data analysis to understand how data in the legacy tools should fit into the target environment
- data wrangling from multiple legacy sources
- data cleansing and normalization prior to migration into the target environment
- transitioning to new architecture methods and convention
VAIL has proven and cost effective approach to address these challenges using its enterprise architecture migration tool, SAARIS, streamlined methodology and an adept workforce with experience in data science principles and skillsets, including (but not limited to) Python, R, and Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK) Processing.
To support requirements of this nature, VAIL Technologies can be sole-sourced as an SDVOSB to provide this capabilities, to include our proprietary SAARIS code, in accordance with FAR 19.1406.
Data Analytics & Integration
VAIL is highly experienced with multiple information technology environments and development frameworks. Our analytic capability includes utilizing industry-leading Cloud-based solutions (such as Amazon Web Services) and software (such as Tableau and coding platforms such as Python and R). We have developed software-intensive systems for multiple functional areas. Our team provides the capability to extend functionality of COTS to designing and developing custom applications to meet constantly evolving, complex business and mission challenges. We are experienced in developing advanced ETL, prototyping, and CASE tools to improve integration and quality of enterprise architectures and enabling more efficient and effective portfolio management.
