Emerging Technologies Lab

Emerging Technologies Lab

The Center of Excellence team, has established an "Emerging Technologies Lab" in AWS Cloud platform to experiment with emerging technologies. We closely work with industry's technology and Open Source Groups to constantly test drive the latest technologies, tools, frameworks and identify their critical functionalities and their usability across current and future AceInfo endeavors. The Emerging Technologies Lab leverages on the center's strong technology background and creates deployable and innovative solutions that are elastic and robust. Our approach emphasizes on proven, reusable and extendable components and frameworks, automation and cost-effective, secure solutions that are beneficial to customers. We ensure that the tools and technologies being proposed are well tested in the lab, where advanced and emerging technologies are first prototyped and hardened out to meet Federal Enterprise Architecture standards, IT/Security policy standards and regulations. We assess the CAPEX and OPEX costs, security implications, Total Cost of Ownership and Return on Investment when evaluating solutions, frameworks and new technologies.

The CoE team, in partnership with our program teams, has transformed technology postures, platforms and solutions into smart, auto-scalable elastic computing fabrics through in-memory computing, software containers, content management systems and Agile/DevOps based IT engineering processes and automation tools. The CoE team leverages the lab environment in AWS Cloud to experiment with "Open Source", "COTS Tools/Frameworks", "Microsoft", "Oracle", "Big Data", "GIS", "Mobile", "Cloud", "DevOps toolsets" and Artificial Intelligence technologies in conjunction with industry standards and efficient software engineering best practices and methodologies.
