Information Technology

DPRA has been a leader in information technology for over 20 years. Our areas of focus include software development, cybersecurity, database development and administration, project support, and custom solutioning.

Software Development
Our software development team is technologically versatile; we have expertise in a variety of tools, from .NET to Java to open-source products. We use an Agile development approach and a Scrum-based process for most projects. This methodology focuses on iterative cycles of design, development, testing, and review, with a focus on delivering features early and often. Our Agile process also supports practicing at Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 3. This ensures our software meets requirements, satisfies clients, and is of the highest quality.
Cybersecurity
Threats to cybersecurity are constantly evolving; as such, security remains a top priority throughout all of our work. Our certified and accredited security experts have extensive experience designing, developing, and implementing software applications that meet the latest Department of Defense security standards. DPRA facilities have also been granted a facility clearance, ensuring that we are prepared to meet our clients’ needs while maintaining confidentiality. DPRA is also familiar with RMF and DIACAP methodologies; we have obtained numerous ATOs to operate on the SIPRNet.
Database
Effective data management means more time spent on decision making—not information sifting. DPRA designs, develops, and administers databases that help our clients securely store and retrieve data. We design scalable databases that store data efficiently without compromising data security or performance.
IT Project Support
In addition to developing state-of-the-art information systems, DPRA is equipped to provide all the services required to maintain the systems and ensure they operate at peak performance. We manage help desks (Tiers 1-3) to provide our customers with efficient and timely support, whether that be resetting user passwords or troubleshooting advanced technical issues. We also have network management teams who can create scalable and secure networks for your applications. Finally, we understand that a system is only as good as the user’s ability to master the system and use it effectively. From automated help applications, to traditional classroom training, to one-on-one user support for advanced applications, DPRA knows how to equip users to use systems effectively.
Custom Solutioning
Our innovative team is dedicated to finding solutions for our clients—even if that means building a solution from scratch. For over 20 years, DPRA has successfully imagined, designed, built, and fielded prototypes for the US DoD, other US federal agencies, and international clients. We are one of the few small businesses that have successfully prototyped for a DoD agency, and transitioned that prototype into a program of record that is still used today.
