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 EDC’s full range of services is available to help every organization transfer outdated legacy systems into new technology platforms, making mission-critical applications more robust, efficient, and cost effective.

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.

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.

EDC recognizes that there is a direct correlation between the successful adoption of technology by their users and the training they receive about 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. EDC recognizes that not everyone learns at the same speed or using the same processes, and therefore we offer different options for training including classroom-based instructor led training (ILT), virtual ILT, self-paced e-Learning, over the shoulder work instruction and much more.  EDC use the most advanced technology and methodologies to support curriculum development and instructional design processes, and update, modify and modernize existing training materials and resources.

EDC Consulting offers a comprehensive portfolio of IT professional services to support SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Maximo, JAVA, .NET, Mobile and Cloud Infrastructure platforms that are compliant with Federal government mandates while speeding up implementation timelines and increasing the pace of innovation—all at the same time. Federal IT initiatives such as the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI), Cloud First, Joint Information Environment (JIE), and continuous monitoring put a lot of pressure on IT to become more agile while reducing spending. Whether it’s building a Network Operations Center (NOC) for the U.S. Army, or hosting a Maximo environment on behalf of an Energy services client, EDC has the necessary experience to streamline service delivery with a scalable, secure platform and increase value through the integration of IT Operations Management (ITOM) tools.

At EDC Consulting, we believe that managing a Federal information security program requires a common-sense, comprehensive, impact based approach that balances risk against our clients’ mission and business need. At EDC Consulting, we empower our Information Security team with strategies to implement stringent monitoring to support the unique needs of the Federal government. Our solutions focus on providing true protections to Federal information systems while meeting Federal compliance requirements. The value of the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) Risk Management Framework can only be realized with a program that includes a continuous monitoring, security lifecycle approach. Our continuous monitoring implementations provide our clients with standardized, repeatable security impact assessments and processes. This provides the necessary metrics and organizational risk understanding needed to make value based security decisions to enable an agency to fulfill its mission. We use an impact based approach that starts with an understanding of the clients risk profile and business processes. This permits a tailoring of security controls based on impact that radically lowers the cost of security while improving effectiveness.
