new capability for enterprise-level information technology management including Services Lifecycle Management
Dayton, Ohio (PRWEB) March 28, 2011
Ross Group Inc announced today that it was awarded a subcontract by prime contractor Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) to support the NETCENTS-2 EISM contract. The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract has a total ceiling value of $460 million for all awardees, if all options are exercised.
The EISM contract provides the Air Force with a new capability for enterprise-level information technology management including Services Lifecycle Management(SLM) using non-personal Advisory and Assistance Services (A&AS) contracts. Because EISM provides strategic level consulting, it will help the Air Force and its major commands, direct reporting units and center-level organizations manage and plan for IT and net-centric changes within their domains. These services will enable enterprise integration and service management support for both infrastructure and mission capabilities.
“Ross Group is well positioned with SAIC to provide complementary Services Lifecycle Management on EISM,” says Steve Woody, Senior Vice-President of Government Solutions. “We provide best practice SLM services to customers across the country running Ross Group’s Enterprise Application Software (EAS) systems built on Web Services(WS) and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) frameworks. They rely on our SLM support, methodology, and continual service improvement.”
