Background

Founded in 1995, Eye Street Solutions is a web and mobile technology development company with over 15 years of experience helping our customers solve their IT challenges. We help government and commercial organizations develop and implement cost effective web and mobile solutions that streamline and unify communications with their customers. Our agile development methodologies and tools coupled with our deep industry knowledge and experience allow us to deliver innovative solutions that help our customers meet their mission and realize a positive return on investment.

Our customers benefit by having a trusted advisor that will help them navigate the following five greatest challenges facing government IT leaders today:

  • Federal IT Project History - Federal IT mishaps go back over 40 years and include billions of dollars worth of projects that were cancelled before delivering any value.
  • Project Complexity and Scope Makes Success Elusive - Large government projects typically experience anywhere from 33 to 66% scope creep.
  • Government Infrastructure Meets Modern Communication - Government systems lag behind commercial capabilities that the American Public expects. They demand instant communication and feedback through social media and other modern forms of communication.
  • Security Nightmares - The Senate, NASA, and all branches of the military have experienced dangerous criminal breaches. 96% of the security breaches were avoidable and the average cost per incident is 7.2 Million. The Cloud first initiative is further complicating the security outlook.
  • The Intricacies of Procurement - Vendors play a significant role in the success of a project. The viewpoint that government should not engage with vendors because of issues with perceived favoritism needs to be defeated. A weak vendor/client relationship is one of the biggest reasons for an unsuccessful project. Engagement upfront can help the government to shape their requirements and have a much clearer picture of the solution that is required.
