November 26, 2019

RESTON, Va., November 26, 2019 — NCI Information Systems, Inc. (NCI), a leading provider of advanced information technology solutions and professional services to U.S. federal government agencies, announced today it has been recognized as an Industry Innovator for its artificial intelligence-driven application modernization solutions for federal customers. NCI received its award, which recognizes private-sector companies’ vital role in harnessing new technologies for the government IT community, during the 2019 Government Innovation Awards held on November 7.

“Over the past two years, we have built an unparalleled range of AI capabilities through exclusive partnerships with proven commercial leaders to leverage cutting-edge robotic process automation, machine learning, code refactoring and other emerging technologies,” said Paul A. Dillahay, NCI president and CEO. “I am extremely proud of our team’s work, their innovative spirit and passion to want to help federal agencies realize and embrace the full benefits of AI technology. This award is a testament to our commitment to operationalize AI for our customers, transform our federal workforce and advance government.”

Today more than ever, government agencies are faced with the dilemma of outdated and non‑supported code burdening their digital landscape, which poses security risks, creates cost concerns and hampers modernization efforts. Using our proprietary CodeIntent™ AI tool and development methodologies, NCI can refactor legacy technology and modernize the software to the appropriate targeted platform at 30 to 40 percent of the cost, in 25 to 30 percent of the time, and at the lowest possible risk. As a result, government funding can be directed toward enabling more mission, reducing bureaucracy, and investing in training for staff, which will dramatically improve how government meets its mission.

The government has a tremendous amount of legacy code that needs to be modernized — code refactoring is a very unique way to do this while also being cost effective,” added Dillahay. “With our AI‑driven code refactoring solutions, NCI can truly help accelerate the modernization of our customers’ legacy code and take federal modernization efforts to the next level.”
