Software used in today’s mission-critical and operational environments is vulnerable to malicious threats. In order to improve resilience to attack and inadvertent misuse, assurances that closely couple with diligent security engineering and industry best practices are required to protect software systems. When properly integrated into the software development lifecycle (SDLC), software assurance best practices can improve the security posture of the system and reduce the risk of an attack.
Ideogenics has developed and integrated system solutions across hardware and software domains; deployed enterprise integration products that include large scale architectures, asset management systems, supply chain management, and large scale data management systems; integrated knowledge management and thought leadership systems for networks, network security, business intelligence, and large scale data and data management systems.

In two years, the Ideogenics team working on a contract with the Intelligence Community has re-utilized 42 safes and over 300 pieces of furniture. This program has been so successful that the Facilities Project Managers consult with the Logistics Officers to see if they fulfill their furniture requirements for their projects. It is very rare that furniture and safes are purchased. The re-utilization effort has resulted in annual cost savings in excess of 150K and elimination of 2K annual furniture rental costs. This re-utilization also has increased the morale of the Intelligence Community (IC) Personnel as they see their arcane furniture being replaced with new and ergonomic-friendly furniture that they have chosen.
With our IC client, logistical support needs were established, staffing organized and logistics support functions made operational and maintained. Ideogenics met the needs of our IC client’s Logistics Support; addressing the full supply chain — using analyses and plans to minimize and manage logistics risks. We also provided product support tasks that include product maintenance planning, warranty analysis, maintenance and service provider networks, and finally, ensuring the system is optimally supported. In summary, Ideogenics increased their cost savings for other resources by being able to reallocate and reutilize existing items. In turn the client’s Logistics Infrastructure has increased by being able to deliver more efficiently.

Financial Data Monitoring
The world’s largest banks and financial services companies have developed comprehensive systems to model the credit risk arising from important aspects of their business lines. These models are intended to assist financial institutions in quantifying, aggregating and managing risk across geographical and product lines. The outputs of these models play increasingly important roles in banks’ risk management and performance measurement processes: including performance-based compensation, customer profitability analysis, risk-based pricing and, to a lesser degree, active portfolio management and capital structure decisions. Ideogenics offers these services, and other financial management products.
