We enable large-scale digital transformations in the US Government ranging from Cloud Migration of on-premises workloads, re-platforming legacy systems, creating and implementing SecDevOps best practices, and Data Management and Analytics. Tarkik’s track record of creating strategic digital transformation roadmaps and delivering successful implementations makes us an ideal partner for Federal agencies embarking on modernization efforts.
Cloud Smart | Cloud Native | Cloud Migration The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) defines cloud computing as "a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction". Our team brings extensive experience in architecting cloud-agnostic solutions, consistent with the Federal Government's Cloud Smart strategy which accelerates adoption of cloud-based solutions. We have successfully implemented Cloud Native architectures in several cloud environments such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Heroku. Our experience includes analyzing, planning, and implementing a Cloud Migration strategy for on-premises systems, accommodating business and technical requirements such as cost, security, scale and timeline.
Security | Automation | CVEs DevOps refers to a paradigm that merges development and operations into one organization, with shared responsibility for product quality and operational effectiveness. SecDevOps (Security-Development-Operations) differs from DevOps by extending the DevOps philosophy to incorporate security objectives. Tarkik brings extensive experience developing a shift-left approach and security testing automation in our agile software development teams. We utilize Static Application Security Testing (SAST), Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), dependency scanning, container scanning, and license management in Continuous Integration (CI) / Continuous Delivery (CD) pipelines. Automation allows us to stay on top of Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) reported in NIST's National Vulnerability Database (NVD).
Data Analytics and Business Intelligence
Descriptive | Diagnostic | Predictive Data analytics is the science of extracting meaningful, actionable insights from raw unstructured and structured data. It comprises the processes, tools, and techniques of data analysis and management, including the collection, organization, and storage of data. Tarkik performs descriptive analytics, diagnostic analytics, and predictive analytics for Government clients and manages Business Intelligence (BI) platforms to support ad-hoc reporting, canned reports, and creation of dashboards to inform business decisions.
Custom Application Development
12-Factor | Open-source Tarkik has extensive experience developing custom software solutions, such as web or software-as-a-service applications, for public and private sector clients. We utilize a twelve-factor application development methodology that uses declarative formats for setup automation, has clean contracts with the underlying operating system, is suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, minimizes divergence between development and production, and scales without significant changes to tooling or architecture. Our solutions are commonly developed to take advantage of open-source programming languages.
