We understand that every client, program, and project is unique. This is why we provide a wide range of capabilities to align with your specific needs – your goals, your budget, your timeline. We work with you to understand the end goal and don’t stop there. Our solutions meet today’s pain points and leverage emerging technologies and techniques that will continue to support evolving needs.
Our technical capabilities include:
Data Analysis, Analytics & Dashboards
Unearthing knowledge. Many agencies have mounds of data but too little information. TCG analysts apply incisive thinking with off-the-shelf and open source tools to succinctly explain and present information on trends, performance, and impacts. From the noise of overwhelming volumes of data, TCG’s analysts, statisticians, and developers take agencies from confusion to data-driven decisions. With TCG as their data partner, agencies have smooth implementation of the DATA Act, find billions of dollars in cost savings, and are among the most transparent in the world.
Cybersecurity, Authentication & Policy
Assurance ensured. More than ever, agencies must protect systems with a wide range of physical and information assurance activities, such as improving business protocols, hardening facilities, building resiliency and redundancy, incorporating hazard resistance into initial system design, initiating active or passive countermeasures, installing security systems, leveraging self-healing technologies, promoting workforce surety programs, and implementing cybersecurity measures. TCG’s certified security professionals leverage standards such as the NIST Risk Management Framework models to tailor continuous system acceptance processes that streamline your agency’s security implementations and provide data protection via defense-in-depth approaches.
Application & Web Development
Jack be nimble. What makes an Agile project truly successful? The development lifecycle? The culture of the team? The technologies in play? We believe that real agility comes from placing priority on serving our customers in a way that removes the burden of process overhead, and delivers freedom to harness the potential that key technologies can bring. TCG has developed applications for over 20 years and has used Agile since 2003. We created the Software Methodology Rules for TCG (SMRT), integrating Agile with CMMI Level 3, ISO 9001:2008, and the PMI Project Management Body of Knowledge, to make Agile ‘sane’ and ready for enterprise utilization. Whether the project is JavaEE, .Net, RubyOnRails, PHP, or Perl, your agency’s application and web development projects will go faster and produce higher levels of quality with TCG as your partner.
Systems Architecture & Design
Users are the center of the universe. When your people love the experience of using a system, they work more effectively. That’s why TCG’s systems generate experiences that people describe as “smooth,” and “easy,” and “enjoyable”. And we know that, as agencies embrace more mobile devices, our users will want that same experience on their laptops, phones, and tablets. So we build architectures that operate with no downtime, design responsive interfaces that make users smile (in the office, on the train, or at home), and deliver projects that create greater data quality and vastly higher levels of productivity.
Make your own electricity. Clean your own water supply. Milk your own cows. After all, that’s how America grew so fast, so great, by each of us doing these things well. So agencies continue to make home-spun compute power, because it’s as reliable and cheap as having it delivered by a central service.
Or perhaps that isn’t true. Perhaps there are powerhouses of computing infrastructure, engineered to higher levels of reliability and cost-effectiveness, sitting at the end of your Internet connection, waiting to be tapped. As an Amazon Web Services Consulting Partner, Microsoft Azure Partner, and implementer of government cloud computing, TCG’s certified cloud architects, administrators, and developers have delivered affordable supercomputing capabilities through the web, accelerated Agile development through virtualization, and migrated government agencies into the cloud.
Database Architecture & Data Management
Eliminating the Tower of Babel. Like language, data is complex and diverse. Within an enterprise, data needs to interact with a similarly diverse set of people and systems. We ensure that all data “speaks the same language,” whether stored in MySQL, SQL Server, DB2, PostgreSQL, or Access, eliminating confusion and loss of clarity, so agencies get to decisions faster.
Operations & Maintenance
Smooth sailing. Once a system is complete, the real work can begin. We provide agencies with seamless operations and maintenance, from help desk to configuration management, while working to make systems even more effective and secure, with upgrades, enhancements, patches, security, and performance improvements. It’s why TCG projects boast 99.9% uptimes and systems with incredible longevity and low cost operations.
Best practices for better outcomes. When we see a giant, our first instinct is to climb on their shoulders and see what the world looks like from on high. That’s why our management philosophies are based on the best practices found in the Project Management Body of Knowledge, Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), and ISO 9001:2008. TCG’s PMP-certified project managers use best practices such as these to ensure quality, timeliness, and cost awareness for all programs.
