It is a great honor to be recognized by the Department of the Navy on this effort. Managers can focus on assessing and managing technical readiness and mission requirements instead of spending time processing paperwork.

The implementation team for Paladin Data Systems’ Advanced Skills Management (ASM) product has won the Department of the Navy IM/IT Excellence Award. ASM was nominated for developing a management system that increases the capabilities and capacities of organizations with complex training and maintenance requirements. ASM can be adapted to many military communities without reinventing new process, ASM provides current and future personnel readiness, and supports the ability to standardize training requirements. The implementation team consists of more than 55 government civilian employees and contractors. Paladin’s role spans the entirety software development life cycle.
Juan Haley, Paladin Product Manager for the ASM team, accepted the award on behalf of Paladin. “The ASM engineering team here at Paladin is highly honored to be a part of the Navy integrated project team in receiving the DON IM/IT Excellence Award,” he stated. “The ASM team takes great pride in providing successful solutions to our dedicated service men and women.”
The award recognizes technology implemented for the Navy that increases the efficiency and effectiveness of military personnel, expands use to the Naval Fleet remote and non-networked environments and shows significant cost savings and/or avoidances. ASM’s primary purpose is to manage the complex requirements for maintaining qualifications, certification and licenses (QCL’s) throughout the Navy.
ASM was first implemented over 10 years ago for use by Navy aviation mechanics. Prior to ASM, over 7,000 unique QCL’s were managed through an intense manual process. ASM version 3 was put into production for use well beyond the Navy’s aviation maintenance community and is being used by Navy Expeditionary Combat Command, Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command and the USMC Aviation Ordnance.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by the Department of the Navy on this effort,” states Jim Nall, president and CEO of Paladin. “Managers can focus on assessing and managing technical readiness and mission requirements instead of spending time processing paperwork.”
ASM is a vastly scalable and highly configurable application that could be used by any Department of Defense organization to manage the QCL’s of its personnel. In doing so, each organization that implements ASM avoids the charges of creating a custom developed program with the same functionality, which results in a cost savings of at least $11 million.
ASM was previously recognized as one of the Top 5 Department of Defense Programs in conjunction with Raytheon Company and the Naval Undersea Warfare Center-Keyport.
