Proven, Reliable Engineering for Your Mission Critical Information Systems

High-Velocity Delivery at 30-40% Less Cost

With deep technical expertise and mission experience, veteran APG professionals are a force multiplier enabling U.S. Defense, Space, and Intelligence Agencies to rapidly architect, develop, and deploy secure leading-edge software solutions—quicker and at 30-40% less than leading commercial software and hardware providers. We simultaneously optimize your existing investments, and accelerate schedules, while reducing your program risks. Therefore, your mission critical information systems can reach full operational capability faster with more functionality, robust security, and greater return on investment (ROI).

Our Services Leverage Key Integrated Partnerships

We’re highly effective in leveraging our commercial “reach-back” partnerships (e.g., IBM, Oracle, and Red Hat), in concert with our System Integrator relationships (e.g., Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Ball Aerospace, and ITT Exelis). Such world-class leverage enables APG architects to rapidly develop and deploy leading edge software solutions for mission critical information systems in the following key areas:

Data Management

Turning Big Data into Actionable Information

APG stands ready to tackle the dynamic challenges you’re facing in today’s high-speed net-centric enterprise. Today’s operational environment requires Information Superiority, and multiple missions are accelerating the volume, variety and velocity of information flowing throughout the Defense Information Enterprise. We embrace the fact that high-performance data management ultimately impacts the successful deployment of enterprise systems. We excel at turning Big Data into actionable information you can act on with high confidence.

APG High-Performance Data Management Services

Our approach to data management enables you to mitigate the risk inherent in the adoption of complex, leading edge data management solutions while optimizing your Return on Investment. Our proven track record for architecture, implementation and deployment of highly available, distributed database solutions is exemplary. Rapid application of our experience will ensure optimized and accelerated solutions to your mission system needs.

Solution Architecture Support

Our highly experienced senior architects have successfully designed, implemented and deployed numerous mission critical database solutions for national and military agencies. We can help guide and support your architecture strategy via requirements definition, refinement and traceability in concert with commercial (e.g. Oracle/IBM) best practices for establishing robust and scalable data architectures. We have extensive experience in systems and platform architecture for mission critical enterprises using Maximum Availability Architecture, Enterprise Information Integration, Very Large Data Base (VLDB) architectures, Data Warehousing and Grid Computing.

COTS and Open Source Enterprise Database Implementation Support

APG Tech database engineers are outstanding professionals who possess numerous formal industry certifications, and decades of hands-on experience with Oracle and IBM advanced database features such as Spatial, Partitioning, Security (Label Security, DataVault, AuditVault), Real Application Clusters (RAC) and Grid Control. In addition, we have extensive experience in migrating from COTS DB platforms (e.g. Oracle 11g and IBM DB2) to Commercial Open Source DB platforms (e.g. MySQL, Accumulo, MongoDB, Cassandra, and HBase). Leverage our talent and experience to accelerate your development schedules and minimize risks across your entire enterprise database development lifecycle.

Enterprise Deployment Support

You can rely on APG experts (DBEs, DBAs and Developers) to work as a force multiplier for fielding and supporting your mission critical program. Our ability to minimize complexity and risk during the critical transition from testing into field operations comes from proven experience in deploying numerous DoD and IC enterprise DB systems.

Private Cloud Engineering

Converging Private Cloud and Enterprise Architectures

Based on our experience over the past few years, we’ve integrated two DoD/IC market trends, private cloud and federal enterprise architecture. APG has recognized that rather than evolving down independent paths, private cloud and enterprise architectures have converged to drive agency directives toward private clouds and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) enablement. APG has the private sector skills and DoD and Intelligence knowledge to effectively and securely move mission critical information systems into the Private Cloud while leveraging the best elements of the federal enterprise legacy.

APG Private Cloud Engineering

With APG, agencies can reap the time and cost saving benefits of Private Cloud architectures, while maintaining operational control over their data and applications, and integrated robust cyber security required by their critical missions.

Our private cloud engineering experience and expertise focuses on the Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) layer. We leverage our deep experience in virtualized, and traditional system infrastructures, for integrating and testing scalable and secure mission critical applications using leading edge middleware COTS and COSS technologies. We continue to hone our leading edge skills using commercial open systems and open source platforms, such as OpenStack to meet private cloud requirements in Defense and Intelligence Communities.

Information Assurance & Cyber Security

Maintain Security in the Cloud with APG

The DoD/IC Community has committed to applying Cloud Computing in order to consolidate data centers and reduce costs in today’s world of Defense budget cutbacks; however, the cyber threat continues to grow and private cloud platforms must conform to certification & accreditation (C&A) directives such as DIACAP and DCID-6/3 (ICD-503). With decades of experience deploying Information Assurance (IA) capabilities in accordance with DIACAP and ICD-503, plus certifications and advanced skills, APG can help ensure that cyber security is a robust, embedded capability for your enterprise, not an after-thought or add-on. With APG, cyber security becomes the silver lining in your private clouds.
