Research Institution
The Government current software development acquisition process takes months or years for technology to reach operational users. The process within the Department of Defense (DoD) is drastically more expensive than available options used in the commercial market space. GURU Technology will demonstrate feasibility of an innovative platform to: 1) drastically lower cost, 2) improve results, 3) significantly reduce delivery periods. The Rapid Acquisition Management Platform (RAMP) will include talent from a pool of small businesses, academic institutions, and freelance individuals. The Government will have access to skill sets that are in high demand such as software developers, graphic artists, and other talented individuals, located across the globe but not available via traditional Government and Defense industrial bases. Features such as reverse auction and ranking will provide qualified talent at lower cost. In addition to individual talent, RAMP will provide project management and software development tools to empower project teams to deliver quality products while reducing delivery periods. We will also demonstrate gainful use of open standard architectures and technologies deployed in the cloud.
