Information Technology

Our team provides IT systems engineering, software engineering, application development, system integration, cloud services, network & telecommunications, information assurance, IT-focused program & project management, and other IT services:

Systems Design and Engineering Support

We produce architecture artifacts, including operational views, capability matrices, system-to-system maps, data flows, operational and system views, and controlled vocabularies, to help our customers successfully plan, model, and implement digital transformation and modernization programs and acquire new solutions. Our team is fully capable of developing, delivering, and maintaining an architecture approach and framework that is documented in an Enterprise Architecture Framework (EAF), including a deep understanding and utilization of the DoD Architecture Framework (DoDAF).

Software Engineering, Systems Integration, and O&M Support

Team Y&W provides application development, modernization enhancements, systems integration, and operations and maintenance (O&M) services for a variety of systems, including Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) and Government Off-the-Shelf (GOTS) solutions, websites, custom mission applications, and specific applications for human resources (HR), case management, and other disciplines. Leveraging our agile development methodology, our team quickly identifies stakeholder requirements, and designs and develops mission, mission-support, and customer-serving applications and websites. Our capabilities include providing system administrative services for critical applications.

Solutions: Team Y&W provides engineering change support for the integration and interoperability of ISR-based technologies and upgrades into current and future Intelligence Community (IC) baseline systems. We supported the USAF Air Combat Command (ACC) with acquisition strategies and development of new systems, including providing these capabilities:

  • Research & development
  • Requirements and capabilities analysis
  • Engineering analysis
  • Test bed design
  • System architecture design
  • Design system integration architecture
  • Prototype / demonstration application design and development
  • Development test (DT) and operational test (OT) support
  • Systems integration

Results: We successfully executed numerous Joint Expeditionary Forces Experiments (JEFX) and Technical Assessments (TA), promoting risk reduction strategies and Live Fly Operational Assessments (OA), including enabling first-ever systems integration with LF sorties at JEFX for data and data performance and interoperability assessment. Y&W received numerous commendations from agency participants for our work on this project.

Empirical delivers superior financial management results supporting clean audit opinions, effective budget execution, improved data accuracy and program performance, and moreY&W provides software engineering services in support of mission readiness, training, logistics, and administrative functions for 6,000 full-time and 15,000 part-time military service members and civilian employees of the California Army National Guard and other tenant organizations stationed at any of the 93 CAARNG facilities.

Digital Transformation and Cloud Services

Y&W can help agencies to better leverage cloud solutions, including providing applications and services migration and supporting application development and implementation in the cloud. Y&W supported the prime contractor to help the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence on their cloud migration activities, including providing objectives mapping and assessment of service cloud migration efforts in support of a common data fabric.
