Delmock Technologies, Inc.


DTI’s IT approach is comprised of industry best-practices that include CMMI, ITILv3, and PMBOK. DTI provides a disciplined approach to migrate customer solution requirements through our development and testing process to produce software applications that compliment CMS’ XLT framework. Developing solutions that are needed to bridge COTS products within legacy systems requires our disciplined approach to various development methods, such as Agile, coupled with a sensitivity to identifying solutions through a FIT/GAP analysis to the current operating model.

For instance, DTI’s proven Agile based methodology incorporates best practices for full lifecycle software development, architecture, and operations support. DTI’s Agile development base releases on requirements defined at a high level and then refine through an iterative process, with extensive engagement and feedback from stakeholders.

Application monitoring and alerting: We propose innovative approaches for automated monitoring and alerting of the CMS application by incorporating alerting procedures into the code. The benefit of this approach is that problems are proactively discovered before the CMS end users experience or reports them. For all new change requests and enhancements, we will consider the application monitoring, thresholds, alerting requirements as early as the Software requirements/development stage and incorporate these checks into code review. We will use the existing instrumentation and Tivoli Enterprise Console (TEC) alert mechanism to integrate application monitoring and alerting.

Predictive analytics for maintaining high availability and reliability: We propose predictive analytics for preventing expensive outages. Our approach includes correlation of business, technical, and historical CMS events/trends to predict potential issues by correlation of business issues (performance, slowness, or outages) and historical trends. The benefits include improved operational efficiency of the applications, reduced tickets, and minimized MTTR/increased MTBF, resulting in high availability.
