EDC’s systems experience and expertise extends well beyond the traditional ERPs such as SAP, Oracle and Peoplesoft. For many years, EDC has been working with clients in both large and small organizations to leverage the investments and software licenses that reside within their current software portfolio. Having a true “product agnostic” approach to delivering the best solution for each client, EDC has worked with many different business systems and technologies including Workday, JD Edwards, Lawson Financials, Great Plains, Momentum, Manugistics, i2, Sage software and many more. We have the technical skills and functional know-how to help organizations of all sizes harness the power of ERP without the high costs and long implementation lifecycles. Our deep understanding of leading-edge systems, processes and technologies, combine for an invaluable 360-degree perspective on applying the right technology to achieve mission objectives.

Software development projects within the Federal sector often fail to readily accommodate changing requirements, leading to frequent cost overruns and delays. The reality is these legacy approaches are poorly designed for today’s more dynamic missions and tighter budgets.  EDC Consulting’s Software Development services team works in partnership with its clients to manage, design, develop, deliver and support unique custom built software and middleware solutions. Each solution is exclusively designed and implemented to meet our individual clients’ requirements.  EDC is able to deliver an experienced, highly technical team with deep subject matter expertise SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Maximo software solutions and the application development process.

Whether using SAP HANA, Oracle’s Data Integrator or other next-generation Extract Load and Transform (ELT) technology, EDC helps its clients improve performance and reduce data integration costs while providing continuous access to timely and trusted data across heterogeneous systems.  Through many years of experience and lessons learned, our key to success is driven by our deep understanding of the importance data quality and data management.  We work closely with our clients to address all data issues prior to deploying and transitioning to any new system.  EDC is managing the HR (PII) data of more than 1.2 million soldiers in a trusted data warehouse as a prime contractor in the U.S. Army.  EDC also built and maintains a three-environment infrastructure, using key components of Oracle’s Fusion Middleware (FMW), Oracle’s Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE), Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), WebCenter Portal and Content Management, Records Management, Secure Enterprise Search, Identity Management and Single Sign-on as a prime contractor for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

As with most Federal government legacy information systems, there comes a time when making system modifications or enhancements are no longer financially practical.  Since these systems are often the backbone of that organization, it is not something to consider lightly.  EDC Consulting helps its clients migrate and modernize mission-critical legacy systems so they can take advantage of new technology and increase productivity.  EDC’s full range of services is available to help every organization transfer outdated legacy systems into new technology platforms, making mission-critical applications more robust, efficient, and cost effective. EDC can do this seamlessly without missing a step during the migration. EDC works closely with its clients to allow them to operate more efficiently and effectively today and in the future.

The Department of Defense and the Federal government have countless business systems (Oracle, SAP, Peoplesoft, Legacy, etc.) dispersed across the enterprise that are in use today and must be maintained to stay operationally effective. These business systems have many challenges in maintaining them such as integration challenges with newer, more modern systems or legacy systems, lack of maintenance, upgrades and enhancements, as well as knowledgeable system resources and fiscal constraints. Replacement of these systems with newer, modern technology is a challenging option given the high cost of and lengthy schedules for development prior to fielding these systems. Therefore, our clients have a mission critical need to maintain their current systems to avoid disruption and ensure smooth and seamless operation and service to their end-users. Sustainment requires continuous maintenance, rework and repair of systems and the constant management of their underlying data sources. We work closely with our clients to ensure their key issues are addressed and that the obsolescence of their environments is mitigated. At EDC, we have developed industry-leading operational and system support solutions to give our clients a very high probability of achieving and successful implementation. We have developed best practices based on our vast experience with this kind of support. While working with EDC, you’ll have a team of dedicated professionals who will guide you to success. We will make sure our clients place their focus on their mission at all times while we sustain their systems, and ensure that mission critical systems continue to run smoothly, while keeping budgets on track– or get it back on track. We understand the DOD and Federal government business processes and we’re easy to work with.

When standard, “out of the box” business systems are delivered to our clients, they sometimes need to alter existing functionality or add additional functionality to the existing applications based on their unique business requirements. Whether applying enhancements in SAP, Oracle or Java, or developing custom system modifications using User Exits, Customer Exits, Business Add-Ins (BADIs), EDC Consulting’s experienced Developers have the expertise to customize our clients’ ERP based business systems using dynamic modeling and flexible custom dimensions to ensure that their business systems support their processes

EDC recognizes that there is a direct correlation between the successful adoption of technology by their users and the training they receive in support of that technology.  EDC offers a comprehensive approach to training that begins with Workforce Preparation and Change Management and includes the education, training and assessment of our clients’ workforce.
