Army Research Laboratory (ARL)

IT Platform Modernization​


  • The Problem
    In early 2018, ARL approached DSFederal with a new goal to move to a low-code platform to accelerate implementation timelines for new business applications. We helped ARL develop a technology strategy and a migration path to maximize business agility, minimize administration burden, and increase speed to market.

  • Our Solution
    Our team’s development of the Collaboration Manager Application, which is integral to ARL’s Open Campus initiative, supports the continuous flow of people and ideas in a research environment. We also provided ARL with new functionalities and automated manual processes that enhance their ability to execute cooperative research and development agreements (CRADA).

  • The Results 
    By integrating open-source technology with legacy applications, DSFederal has created more robust and future-proof products, eliminating many of the support costs associated with legacy technology.
