IT & INFRASTRUCTURE MODERNIZATION
In recent years, the way organizations consume and contract for IT & Infrastructure has changed dramatically. Infrastructure, platforms, software, applications, operating systems, and other technologies can be consumed as a service, without long term ownership. FRC helps organizations with contracting and consuming technologies and navigating the tradeoffs of ownership, security, and responsibilities while keeping mission success the primary goal
CLOUD ADOPTION & CONSUMPTION
A cloud IS a data center – but it may be one that you’re only renting rather than running. The use of a hybrid or public cloud may offset vastly expensive equipment, real estate, power and cooling ownership, but does it create different security and privacy considerations? FRC helps organizations determine what applications and technologies can still support mission from a hybrid or public cloud and how to ensure the same levels of security and privacy at a lower overall cost.
HEALTHCARE IT, IS, & PRIVACY
Healthcare modernization utilizes advances in information technology to provide faster, better care at a lower cost. However, these advances are fraught with information security and privacy risk because of the value of the personal information being collected. FRC helps organizations ensure their healthcare mission of better, faster care at a lower cost while designing and executing the systems that protect the data, patients, and providers.
GOVERNANCE, RISK & COMPLIANCE
There are diametrically opposed philosophies regarding governance, risk, and compliance in many organizations today, often because both sides of the philosophical debate (risk vs. operations) are often underfunded, undertrained, or both. The teams tasked with charting, navigating, assessing, and trying to limit risk find GRC a tool that assists them in determining the largest serious potential incidents and recommending improvements before a serious potential incident becomes an exploited breach. Operational teams often find GRC a sinkhole of time and effort, comparing a snapshot with a short half-life against an unachievable checklist. Like many philosophical differences, the truth is often in the middle. FRC’s approach is to create a weighted approach to ensure that serious risks are mitigated without creating undue labor pressure on operators and analysts which in itself can create undue mission risk.
Ensuring that disparate parts of a project all come together at the same time successfully is a necessary science for every multi-disciplined organization. Where challenges can occur is in managing the sometimes conflicting expectations that different parts of an organization can have and balancing those expectations to ensure a successful mission outcome. FRC has past performance experience in the most challenging, often classified environments throughout both the US government as well as the private sector. Leveraging industry best practices with experienced, PMP certified Project Management staff, FRC tackles the parts of project management where problems routinely occur such as navigating change management outcomes for the wider team and leveraging modern technology to ensure the project management itself does not create undue labor burden. The result is a project management team that ensures project success – on time, on budget, meeting or exceeding the stated mission objective.
