Cloud Migration & Optimization

Cloud Migration is providing federal agencies with a way to scale back O&M and infrastructure costs.  The Federal Government needs to exit the data center business and we’re here to help.  Using cloud resources to replace data center resources usually provides a clear return on investment (ROI).  ROI is maximized when the shift to the cloud is accompanied by a measured effort to replace application functionality with cloud-native services like search, containerization, storage, etc.

A-TEK has an experienced cloud migration team which understands that every application which requires migration also requires close coordination with multiple (sometimes dozens) of teams to ensure that cutover of services in progressive environments is accomplished without operational disruption or friction between partner teams.

Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

A-TEK provides support to Federal Agencies which have a need to leverage AI, ML, and RPA to meet their missions in a more cost-effective way. We are experienced developing solutions for federal partners which leverage emerging AI, ML, and RPA concepts to meet Agency Mission Objectives. Our clients can realize order-of-magnitude efficiencies by incorporating these solutions into their case management processes and data mining and analysis activities.

Molecular Thoughts


We see it way too often. DevOps teams spend an enormous amount of time and money developing applications that go into pre-deployment and fail the technical security assessment. Agencies have a choice of sending them back and spending more time and money or accepting the risk. Neither is a good option.

With A-TEK DevSecOps, security is integrated throughout the full development life cycle of applications and systems: planning, coding, building and testing to deploying, operating, and maintaining. We ensure our applications and systems work securely the first time out, minimizing risk while reducing time and costs.

Other key differentiators include:

As data sources, types, and volumes increase, the process of mining real intelligence for decision making becomes more and more complex. Simply layering on more software, dashboards, charts, reports, and rollups just adds to the complexity and creates confusion with extracting the intelligence.

Dashboards may be cool, but they do not intrinsically produce intelligence.

A-TEK is transforming data into decision analytics and business intelligence. We start by defining the decisions the enterprise makes every day, every quarter, and every year. We then consider what data is necessary to make those decisions and determine what tools need to be built or customized to extract the intelligence required. Instead of overwhelming the customer with unnecessary information, our solutions produce something else: real, actionable intelligence for decision making; and intelligence that is easily accessed through a user-experience interface designed for decision-makers, not technologists.

A-TEK’s data services include:

  • Data Storage, Centralization, and Consolidation
  • Extract Transform Load (ETL)
  • Technology Solutions
  • GIS

Systems Integration

The demand for rapid access to information is on the rise making the role of Systems Integration more important. This complex need for data and application systems integration requires expert knowledge of the systems, operations, technologies used, and platforms supporting them.

A-TEK integrates legacy, custom, and COTS/GOTS applications spanning multiple domains. Using industry standards and best practices, such as Application Programming Interfaces (API), we connect diverse systems to support process automation, data presentation, and improved operational management.

Our experience, expertise, and end-to-end approach let you reap the rewards while avoiding the pitfalls. Addressing the full lifecycle of requirements, our Systems Integration can be used to design, develop, integrate, and enhance enterprise applications.
