North Carolina 

For a County in North Carolina, ADS was chosen to set up a Program Management Office and to develop a roadmap, consisting of a wide range of initiatives to remediate existing functionality currently utilized by the County. ADS used their methodology to expedite the solicitation process and assist in negotiating the best solution for the best value.  ADS developed a set of evaluation criteria, targeting the vendors and their products, and prepared a Request for Information (RFI). This RFI incorporated the detailed business requirements as well as many questions aligned with the County evaluation criteria. The HRMS/HCM and Financial Suite of applications was deployed on a COTS Solution; however, they have experienced a myriad of problems since going live. Significant challenges existed in the integration to third party applications such as Utility Billing, Tax Assessment, GIS, Customer Information System, Asset and Inventory for Parks and Recreation, Police and Fire Departments.

Virginia

For a County in Virginia, our Enterprise Management Systems (EMS) practice provided a thought leadership around deployment of industry standard tools & processes for public sector agencies. This team implemented Next Generation Enterprise Service Management by leveraging ITIL standards as well as industry leading Service Management Tools such as ServiceNow and BMC Remedy.  Our EMS Center of Excellence (CoE) extends comprehensive services for Service Management Tools, including new implementations & upgrades, migrations from existing/legacy tools, consolidation across business/IT divisions and extension of ServiceNow beyond IT functions.

Enterprise Architect & Business Process Management

In our experience working with a Federal Agency, adhering to the Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework (FEAF) we integrated several Mainframe applications with newer technologies that used Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Cloud Computing utilizing Security protocols as per NIST guidelines. In our engagements, we partner with the client stakeholders, understand the processes and develop roadmaps to deploy new integration architectures & capabilities. We have led teams and have developed project specific integration solutions utilizing Enterprise Integration Architecture patterns.

For a Transit Agency in Virginia Beach, as part assessment engagement we managed strategic planning activities to oversee and coordinate financial and control activities to support overall functionality. We defined a strategic roadmap for the transit agency and its affiliated organizations. We provided multiple forecasts based on several different funding scenarios as well as advancing projects to accelerate completion or delaying projects to allow for less burn on monies already committed, enabled those programs to meet their goals despite budgetary constraints.

At State’s Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS), we assisted the state’s staff by defining and documenting customer business functions and processes. We worked with the end-user community and technical staff, in relating system requests and/or changes to the system, and impact of changes to the business processes and suggested suitable actions accordingly.  Working with the end-users, we assisted them in building user acceptance testing (UAT) procedures, and built several test cases, and test data, in testing the new or changed functionality. We worked with the client’s Program Management Office (PMO) in building a detailed change management process for functionalities that affected the user-community at large.

These plans provided a baseline of QA activities for a particular effort; the plans were updated on an ongoing basis throughout a project’s life cycle to reflect process improvement activities, program evolution, and the need for additional services or products. The QA plans defined the policy for quality standards and activities, outlined in the organizational structure of the QA group, described responsibilities of the QA and associated groups, and identified the QA activities necessary in achieving the program objectives, such as:

  1. Continuously measuring and improving the quality of products, processes, and services being delivered;
  2. Reducing rework and costs associated with the development and delivery of products and services; and
  3. Identifying and minimizing risks related to quality.
