HP Wins U.S. Defense Manpower Data Center Contract to Modernize and Manage Mission-Critical Systems
Sep 10, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
HP Enterprise Services announced it has been awarded a task order by the U.S. Department of Defense's (DoD) Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) to support and enhance four Personnel Security and Assurance systems, and to provide development assistance for the Defense Information System for Security (DISS).
According to a release, with this three-year, $56 million task order, HP will provide Applications Management Services to monitor, maintain and enhance the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS), Defense Central Index of Investigations, Improved Investigative Records Repository and the Secure Web Fingerprint Transmission. These systems provide personnel security management for all DoD employees, military personnel, civilians and DoD contractors.
HP said its processes and procedures have been tailored to align with DMDC's, resulting in enhanced agility, efficiency and quality. This repeatable approach lowers the cost for new enhancements and increases productivity.
Further, under the contract, HP also will implement HP Transformation and Integration Services to create security and data services for the new Joint Verification System (JVS), making the environment more modern and standardized. These services will integrate with the DISS user interface components to provide efficient access to the service. HP's streamlined implementation will enable data to be shared on an as-needed basis, resulting in faster response times and less stress on the network.
Additionally, HP will migrate the existing JPAS data into the JVS format, utilizing database extraction, transformation and load processes to preserve data quality during the data migration process, ensuring quality during this transition.
"To meet the complex needs of many of our government clients, it is critical to bring together process, personnel and infrastructure to best utilize resources," said Marilyn Crouther, senior vice president and general manager, U.S. Public Sector for HP Enterprise Services. "As a long-term partner to DMDC, we have a comprehensive understanding of the processes and requirements needed to establish a solution that will help improve the efficiency of the business."
HP's EMEA client event, HP Discover, takes place Dec. 10-12 in Barcelona, Spain.
