AIS' Shiv Kumar is presenting at next week's Microsoft Manicas User Group Meeting!
AIS (Applied Information Sciences) provides software and systems engineering services to government agencies and businesses across the United States. We specialize in cloud services, DevOps, custom application development and IT services. Our areas of expertise include: Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Office 365, SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, Software Development, Enterprise Mobility, User Experience (UX), Business Intelligence / Advanced Analytics & IoT, Operations & Support, and Help Desk Services. Our customers include a broad range of organizations from startups to Fortune 100 companies, state and local governments, as well as defense and national security agencies. Our analysis-driven approach to solving business problems – combined with our commitment to deadlines and budgets – results in successful projects and long-term relationships with our clients. We’re a top-tier cloud partner for Microsoft, Amazon and Equinix with proven capabilities and a track record of success.
Our people are our greatest asset. We endeavor to build relationships and networks to identify best-in-class technologists who have a true passion for solving challenging business problems. Talent at AIS is about entrepreneurship, passion, motivation, thoughtfulness and perseverance. We seek pioneers and innovators; whether that’s in regard to a knowledgebase, a solution, a client relationship, or a career path. Our talent holds the reins at AIS while the management team offers a supportive framework to accomplish sustainable growth.
In some other workplaces it seems that which is valued in candidates for hire is forgotten after they walk through the door on the first day. AIS not only values our desire to learn about new technology, but really follows through by always providing more opportunities to learn. And in finding favor among those who contribute to the community through blogging or public speaking, AIS actively supports and encourages these efforts.
I’ve been with AIS for over a year and have never had a better job. The company is full of brilliant technologists who are quick to help when asked. Management encourages the staff to expand their knowledge and will support them in doing so through projects, training, and speaking. I’ve been able to expand my SharePoint skills, learn client-side languages, and learn the latest with Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.
I’ve been with AIS since 2000, and people often ask me why I’ve stayed so long. The answer is simple, our people. Getting to work on teams of talented, smart, and dedicated professionals who truly share a passion for the technology and providing business value is a humbling, rewarding experience. While at AIS, I’ve been given incredible career growth opportunities that I attribute to hard work, the dedication of our ownership to our people, and to the collaborative approach my managers utilized over the years.
They determine and control company behavior and define the culture.
We are very clear and transparent about our business model. It enables our culture as well as attracting and retaining the kind of people, partners and projects we want. We have a set of guiding principles:
We operate more for a purpose than a profit. We are out to create a community of like-minded people, bound together for this common purpose to realize our guiding principles. We want to create an outstanding system and software engineering firm that partners with clients to realize transformative results.
It drives everything about their business.
By focusing on delivery excellence we challenge and hold everyone accountable. What matters most is the quality and timeliness of what we deliver. Today, most of our competitors elect to provide staffing services with the focus on hours billed. This works well for low level, repetitive commodity services which are only differentiated by price. This is advantageous for the service provider because they assume no risk, no liability and no level of investment other than staffing services. Personnel are treated as commodities to be placed into well-defined and priced roles. As soon as the need for the role is over then the person is released. This does not work well for activities that are not commoditized such as heuristic thought, problem solving, learning, and discovery. In IT automation this would include the definition of an architecture, technical approach, design, process, etc. Projects are required any time a functional organization is involved relating their needs and discovering the best process to automate those needs. In addition, anytime a new innovation is being employed a project should be conducted until all the necessary system and software engineering has been completed to implement that innovation repeatedly. You can’t commoditize analysis and design for both system and software engineering unless you are willing to repeat the work over and over until it reaches the desired result.
We find that most organizations conduct this kind of relationship with their services vendors. At AIS we seek to assume accountability and share risk by conducting projects with a scope, schedule and a budget. Quite often we will take on a small role to prove ourselves and seek projects as we get to know the client better. Fundamentally, we are out to prove we are an outstanding system and software engineering firm and convince the client to partner with us. Our core competency is system and software engineering. That is not the case for our clients, so we seek to become their partners’ for that core competency as well as leading them to leverage the latest innovations
I have been working at Applied Information Sciences full-time (Less than a year)
Where do I start? I have been impressed every step of the way since joining this company. Sure, there are areas in which they can improve, but for a company with the growth that has occurred, they are above the standard. First of all, the recruiting team is one of the best and brightest that I have ever worked with. They were there every step of the way and providing valuable information. Other items of note are below:
- AWESOME onboarding process
- I've worked with some very good teams, and this is probably the best and brightest group of people I have ever worked with in IT.
- Great leadership vision for future growth
- Have adapted to the changing technologies and cloud focused.
- They want you certified and will encourage and pay for it.
To sum it all up, I have been impressed by every step of my journey since joining the company and look forward to what the future holds.
The one con, which is commonplace amongst Federal contracting companies is that much of the work is contract based. In saying that, the company has a great talent management team that works tirelessly to make sure employees stay competitive and can be placed.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work!!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Information Sciences (Reston, VA) in February 2017.
Was referred by a friend and submitted my resume. Was contacted within hours of submitting and had an initial interview. Was then moved along to a technical interview a week later. Finally was called in for a face to face with two Account Managers.
